graphic design

I’ve always been interested in design, and grew up making rudimentary business cards for family and friends on Microsoft Word (*severe cringe shutters throughout my being*). 

 

Once I got older, I taught myself photoshop and illustrator. And after getting a job where I was able to utilize some of these skills, I knew it was something I wanted to pursue, and eventually do professionally. So when the video industry was struggling from the recession, I decided to pivot and go back to school for design.

 

One year and a design certificate later, I got my first proper design job at Periscope, where I spent 4 years learning about everything design, art direction and advertising from some of the best in the biz. I learned advanced design techniques, creative problem solving, efficient time management, and priceless communication skills. But one of the most impactful lessons I learned during my time there, was the importance (and best practices) of self-guided learning and growth. With this in mind, I am always trying to find new inspiration, new tools, and new skill sets to improve my work.
