B.F.A. Graphic Design
All my life I have had a passion for creating things. This passion has grown ever since I was very young and has stemmed from a variety of interests. Throughout my time in school, I had multiple paths I wanted to pursue including architecture, engineering, and art. As the time came to decide what I truly wanted to pursue, I realized that graphic design would be the best fit for me. It is a perfect combination of all my passions; I get to be creative, work with technology, and make things for people to see and enjoy.
Graphic design is a unique form of communication because it does not necessarily involve face-to-face interaction. I find it fascinating that a message can be communicated to an audience without using a single spoken or written word. As I progress as a graphic designer, I find this aspect of communication to be an extremely powerful tool. In today’s fast-paced society, messages need to be communicated as quickly and effectively as possible to viewers and the best way to achieve this is by using appealing visuals that attract attention. The ability to relay a message with such efficiency cannot be matched.
I consider my style of graphic design to be minimalist with a timeless appeal. My style of work tends to be very organized and easy on the viewer, due to my focus on branding and corporate graphic design. My work rarely integrates ornate typography or an assortment of vibrant colors, instead my work uses very legible fonts and a limited color palette with an organized layout. I do not think it is necessary to have “hidden meanings” in art, as I do not intend my design work to be a puzzle that viewers must solve in order to get the message. My main area of interest in graphic design is branding. I love the concept of creating an identity for a company or business solely using visuals. The use of branding in graphic design is one of the most applicable uses for my particular skills and is vital for any company.
