I’ve been doing graphic design as a hobby since the early 1990’s and professionally for the past decade. In that time I’ve gone from Microsoft Paint to Adobe Photoshop. My work has been used for businesses, band logos, and newsletters, as well as integrated into websites and student films.
Since there has been an obvious progression in the quality of my work over the years, I tend to treat graphic design as a kind of journey. I like to learn through experimentation; I don’t have a particular style, but I don’t rule out any styles either. More ideas tend to spring forth whenever I go in a new direction, so I usually work with a concept for awhile both as a means of further exploration and so that I may refine what I’ve learned thus far. Aside from being quite gratifying, I find that doing things this way helps me maintain broad visual vocabulary while also building a more diverse technique.
