Alicia McKenney is the Graphic Designer at Discovery Gateway and has worked at the museum for over three years. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Southern Utah University. At Discovery Gateway, Alicia designs and creates graphics for exhibits, social media, billboards, bus and train ads, banners, you name it! Alicia loves that she gets to do what she loves while working for a non-profit organization that’s supporting the community.
Alicia loves that Discovery Gateway provides a space for children and adults alike to play and learn. She believes visiting the museum is a great way for families to make learning fun while creating memories.
Her favorite project so far at Discovery Gateway was working on the redesign of the Water Play exhibit. She created all the educational signs and cues you see surrounding the exhibit. Right now, she’s working on graphics and signs for the new First Utah Bank exhibit and she’s very excited for you all to see the finished space! Alicia works with every department in the organization to make sure the museum looks its best. There’s always something new to work on!
When she’s not at work, Alicia loves illustrating, watching movies, eating pad thai, listening to spooky podcasts, and trying her hardest to keep her plant babies alive.
