My name is Lizzie Simon and I am currently the Associate Visual Editor / Designer at HGTV Magazine where I'm going on my seventh year working in the Art, Photo, and Social teams. I design recurring stories, such as Come on In!, and other special sections in our issues. I also design presentations, weekly newsletters, posts in the LiketoKnow app, and visuals whenever needed. I produce photoshoots and am in charge of photo research for our How Bad is it...? section. I also help run our HGTV Magazine Instagram account. I love doing anything visual!
I am a graduate of Loyola University Chicago where I studied Visual Communication and Dance. Because of my dance background, I love to incorporate movement into my designs. I also love accents of bold, bright colors. I recently completed the Motion Graphics Certificate program from Fashion Institute of Technology. I've had a love for media since a young age when I dreamed of working in magazines. Before joining HGTV Magazine, I had the experience of being a full-time Beauty Intern for Cosmopolitan and Seventeen as well as a full-time Photo Intern for Cosmopolitan and Seventeen.
