philosophy + principles
Smart + sophisticated design should not be complicated.
Using my talent I’m able to participate in a larger cause by helping others achieve their personal + professional goals through design.
It’s essential to any successful project + relationship.
It saves everyone time + money.
Both are assets to be valued
“Design is the silent ambassador of your brand.”
A Brief HistorY
I’ve always had a love affair with art and design. I can still remember the 3-fold brochure (officially know as the tri-fold) I cut with actual scissors and pasted for a 6th grade Social Studies assignment. Did you know Amsterdam has more bridges than Venice?
As a child, I read that, “If you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life.” – Confucius
I kept thinking how do you make a living with that attitude? Thankfully, I discovered commercial art in college and realized Confucius is right. Isn’t he always?
