Sean Merk

Sean Merk, a graphic design senior from Denville, New Jersey, designed the 2017 THON logo. He was also on the team that designed last year’s “Moving On” poster and t-shirts. His advice to his “before” self would be to try to experiment with taking different classes and more credit hours. He was inspired by Turner’s experience with the honey bee course and wishes he had taken more courses outside of his area of interest. Merk is in the process of job hunting and doing freelance work. Students were encouraged to bring a personal item with them, so Merk brought a box cutter to the "before" shoot; he uses it for graphic design work, and once accidentally cut off part of his finger with it, so he carries it with him to remind him to be careful while working.
