Karlie Hardman is an experienced graphic designer and instructor with a passion for technology. She has taught everything from Digital Media and Web Design to Coding and 3D Design.
She obtained her Associates degree in Graphic Design from Utah Valley University in 2005. From September of 2002 to April of 2003, she volunteered as a Technical Editor for Touchstones, UVU’s publication of art and literature, where she served her academic community. Also while studying at UVU, she worked full-time for several years as a Graphic Designer, gaining valuable experience.
