Founded by Katie “Quinn” Pershon in 2016, quinn.tessentialGeek started as a hobby to mix geek iconography with a clean, minimalistic style. While it originated with video games, it has since branched out to include well-known television, movie, anime, and comic characters. With such a wide scope of interests, the subject matter is seemingly endless and ever-expanding.
Quinn graduated with a BFA in Visual Studies from GVSU in 2016. She currently works as a graphic designer and exhibitions preparator at Grand Valley State University. Her passions include (in no particular order) collaborating in film and installation artwork, anything geek related, her furry kids and her amazing husband.
