I'm a Seattle-based, Midwest-grown, creator, designer, freelancer, actor, director, teacher, writer... usually only a couple of those per day though.
Currently. I'm working in-house at a theatre company as graphic designer and project manager. I also have an Etsy shop and a Spoonflower shop that I'm using as my creative playgrounds and laboratory. Have a look!
I think graphic design (as does any art form) has an opportunity to tell a story. If I tell a good story with my graphic design, I have a better chance of reaching my target audience. My goal is to create a design that draws the viewer in and delivers the most important information at a glance. I'm always asking myself, "What did I look at first?"
