B.F.A. Graphic Design
The bluish screen sends waves of headaches slinking in through the eyes, and soulful designs worth entire evenings are trashed like rubber bands that come with broccoli. Despite it, I persevere, passionately, to present gifts of design to clients to help their cause, whatever it may be.
In these early stages of my professional involvement with the craft of graphic design, I cannot speak resolutely of a style; in fact I try to change my aesthetic based on what is required. However, my focus always stays the same, which is the concept, and the form is always subservient. I enjoy considering the impact of color on designs, and the intricacies involved in typographic composition. In addition, the act of empathy required towards the user for UX design interests me.
I create work in order to nudge the boulder of humanity closer to compassion. Physically I am small, and intellectually I am far from a new Isaac Newton; my voice doesn’t cause wildlife to gather around and my looks don’t invite youthful swooning—but, I feel, somewhere in the shadow of my rib cage, the gust of creativity that is so wide and infinitely capable as to lead our community closer to an ideal world.
Every generation needs a new hero to fight contemporary injustices or to guide societal norms toward a direction of less suffering. Graphic design is simply one route wherein I plan to express that sentiment, and I choose this path over ‘fine art’ for its potentially immediate, mass impact on our daily lives. Conceptual rigor, societal benefit, and spiritual awakening; I approach these vast oceans through my tiny drops of design.
