STEMM Idol Speaker Patrice Hall

Ever wonder who's behind the Web sites and apps you love to use on your computer, smartphone or tablet? Now is your opportunity to meet someone who designs them for a living!

On Tuesday, Sept. 30, CJ welcomes STEMM Idol Speaker Patrice Hall during all homeroom periods in the Trainor Library. Ms. Hall serves as the senior marketing strategist at Marxent Labs in Kettering.

Blending visual arts, graphic design and STEMM fields, Ms. Hall works with popular brands and organizations to creatively design “augmented reality” apps. Don't know what an augmented reality app is?

“I plan out strategy and user experience, communicate with clients, and work with a team of designers and developers to create new digital experiences,” Hall said.

“I've created brands and campaigns for organizations of all types, from local startups to Fortune 500 companies. My work has been recognized by SXSW, MTV .com, AdWeek, and Gizmodo.”

The STEMM Idol Speaker got her start just down the road at fellow Marianist institution the University of Dayton, where she earned her degree in visual communication design. She enjoys being involved in local creative projects, previously serving as president of the Dayton Creative Syndicate. Ms. Hall has also volunteered with FilmDayton and TedXDayton.
