Alumna Michelle Compton '13 has used her graphic design skills to develop two new versions of UNO for Mattel. Michelle designed and developed the cards and packaging for UNO Braille, which was released in October of 2019. As a result, more than seven million low vision and blind people in the US can play the classic game straight out of the box with both blind and sighted friends. For the holidays, Michelle also designed the cards and packaging for Nonpartisan UNO. This limited edition version will be released over Thanksgiving, and it's for family and friends who do not share the same political beliefs. Some previous designs include a Despicable Me Uno edition and an Emojis edition as well as special Uno editions for pro athletes like basketball players Kemba Walker and Chris Paul.

Michelle is member of Episcopal Collegiate School's Class of 2013, and she is a 2017 graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, where she majored in graphic design with a minor in photography. She currently lives in the Los Angeles area and works as a packaging designer for Mattel.

Our featured alumni artist for the 2019-20 school year is Lily Warren. Lily is a member of Episcopal Collegiate School’s Class of 2017, and she is currently a junior at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. While at Episcopal Collegiate, she excelled in the Theatre Program as both an actress and a technical designer. As a young artist, she developed her artistic talent in the Art Studio, focusing on mixed media and painting during her senior year. This is illustrated in her piece that is displayed in our permanent collection entitled, Open Strings.

As a junior as SCAD Atlanta, Lily is majoring in Printmaking and minoring in Painting. She’s also the Printmaking Assistant for the Printmaking Studio at SCAD, and she will graduate in May of 2021. We are thrilled to have four pieces of Lily’s work hanging in the Upper School this year. In her own words: My art is a combination of different printmaking techniques. I love the process of printmaking because it allows for experimentation and variation. My drawings are all intuitive because I feel it is an honest form of mark making straight from my imagination. My influences are organic shapes and exploration of different atmospheres to place my forms.
