I'm a recent graduate of the American Academy of Art with a Bachelors of Fine Art degree in Graphic Design.
One of the main reasons I started designing was to design skateboard decks and clothing, but then I started to understand how powerful design is. I soon learned that design can change peoples opinions about a topic or even make or break a company.
I believe that a great design should be able to tell a history, identity, and a service or a product in its most simplest form. It should be be memorable, portray a feeling, and be able to stand out form others.
