Britt Davis, a 2009 College of Design alum and co-founder of LCKR ROOM, will exhibit her work for the NC State African American Cultural Center. Join us for a sneaker ball-themed opening night. Davis' art and artist talk will inspire ways to create from your life experiences and the stories you carry with you.

Born and raised in the artsy city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Brittany “Britt” Davis has always been drawn to the arts. From building intricate LEGO sets to drawing sneakers from Eastbay magazine, her childhood was full of creativity and design. Today, Britt’s designs are fueled by creative innovation and driven by the opportunity to use design as a platform to inspire others.

After attending NC State’s Summer Design Camp on campus, Britt decided to pursue a degree in Industrial Design. She earned her Bachelor’s degree, along with the Dean’s Award, Ebony Harlem Design and Nash Winstead Academic Achievement Awards, in 2009, along with a minor in Graphic Design. 

While a student at NC State, she participated in the peer mentor program, student ambassador, Design Camp TA, and board member on the Union Activities Board (Marketing Chair), African America Design Student Association (VP), Helping Youth Prepare to Excel (Treasurer), and the Heritage Society. She remains active with the Black Alumni Society, having designed the Homecoming shirts for several years. 

She went on to earn her Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. Her education has brought many professional experiences, including designing for ESPN, Viacom, SB Nation, NASCAR, multiple universities and professional sports teams, athletes and a variety of brands.
