My Recent Work
Web design is more than just creating functional, eye-pleasing web pages. The internet isn’t just on our desktop computer anymore its part of our smartphones, PDAs, MP3 players, and more. Understanding how to create media for the ever-changing internet means you can make your ideas reach more people, anywhere in the world.
Graphic design is a creative process that combines art and technology to communicate ideas. The designer works with a variety of communication tools in order to convey a message from a client to a particular audience. The main tools are image and typography.
Identity / Branding
A logo is not your brand, nor is it your identity. Logo design, identity design and branding all have different roles, that together, form a perceived image for a business or product.
"Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions: there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated."— Paul Rand
The designer does not, as a rule, begin with a preconceived idea. His idea is the result of subjective and objective thought, and the design a product of the idea. In order, therefore, to achieve an honest and effective solution he necessarily passes thought some sort of mental process … Consciously or not, he analyzes, interprets, translates … He improvises, invents new techniques and combinations. He coordinates and integrates his material so that he may restate his problem in terms of ideas, pictures, forms, and shapes. He unifies, simplifies, eliminates superfluities. He symbolizes … abstract from his material by association and analogy. He intensifies and reinforces his symbol with appropriate accessories to achieve clarity and interest. He draws upon instinct and intuition. He considers the spectator, his feelings and predilections.— Paul Rand
