Why am I a designer?Why do we choose to create? What a question to ask. Why do we do half of the things that we choose to do? The answer is simple, because we can. Finding the beauty and absolute freedom in a blank canvas is that skill that can be encouraged and bettered but it can not be taught. One cannot simply read a book and become a skilled artist. It is something that has to be born, be forever changing, forever challenging. It is something that is unique and untameable, yet structured and composed.
I started my love of art when I was a child. My Grandfather opened this creative unpredictable world to me, as he was extremely artistic. He taught me typography via the use of Calligraphy, the Fine Arts via finger paint and creative vision with his leather works. As a child I would sit in my tiny Fisher Price desk and draw for hours. Throughout my childhood I attended many art schools on the weekends, while my peers were at sporting events.
When it came time to decide what I was going to do with my life after high school, I knew I wanted to be in the Creative Design field. I loved the crisp clean lines of modern digital art and I wanted to be apart of that. I wanted to see my designs in everyday life. When I came to Niagara College, I knew it would be a great fit. I loved the mix of people with vast design styles all coming together for one common bond; we wanted to be in the business and we wanted to be great at it.
Today I create because it is not only my passion, but it is what I am good at and I enjoy it. I never once had any doubt about that. Today, I create because I want to see my designs in working motion. I love that from some of my freelance work I can drive down the street and see signs and logos that I have created. That’s exciting.
It inspires me to further myself with my art; to obtain the abilities of top designers in the field. I know this comes with time and experience but I will get there.
Why should you hire me?My mission is to provide your company or organization with compelling and effective designs, whether it’s product design, logo design or something as detailed as full brand identity campaigns. I strive to help companies become leaders in their field by providing superior graphic design materials that are unique and identifiable to each organization’s brand. Most designers know that they have a specific style in which they work, even if it is intended or not. What makes my work unique is that I do not have a specific style. My style is adaptable according to the task at hand. If my design is required to be modern and minimalistic I am easily adaptable. However, if my designs need to be overly complex, it will be. Simply, this makes me more versatile than most designers. I do pride myself on being not tied down to a single style of work that does not allow yourself as an artist to grow and change. Change not only as trends in the industry do, but to always be challenging oneself.
