TRADITIONAL ILLUSTRATION

This is where it all started, for me. From my childhood, through college and my first jobs, I’ve never loved anything more than putting a pencil to paper and creating. Add to that, conceptualizing and adding a specific meaning to the work is a challenge I’ve never grown tired of.

“The dumbest mistake is viewing design as something you do at the end of the process to ‘tidy up’ the mess, as opposed to understanding it’s a ‘ day one’ issue and part of everything.”

TOM PETERS

“Many desperate acts of design (including gradients, drop shadows, and the gratuitous use of transparency) are perpetuated in the absence of a strong concept. A good idea provides a framework for design decisions, guiding the work.”

NOREEN MORIOKA

“Good design must be defined by appropriateness to audience and goals, and by its effectiveness, not by its adherence to Swiss design or the number of awards it wins.”
