Creative Graphic Design Visionist
Passion For Design
Born an only child gifted with artistic talent to parents and family mostly employed by Ford Motor Company and General Motors, I quickly became an admirer of automobiles and developed a passion to be an Automotive Designer. In that pursuit my desire to design grew and expanded from cars to comic book characters, houses and eventually shifted to graphic design. I briefly attended Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids Michigan in 1990 but due to family issues my stay there was cut short. I attended ITT Technical Institute in Canton Michigan for CAD Drafting & Design from 2013 to 2015 obtaining my Associates Degree and graduating with a GPA of 3.8. I was inducted into The National Technical Honor Society in November 2014 top of my class. In 2017 I attended F.I.R.S.T. Institute (Florida Institute of Recording, Sound & Technology) in Orlando Florida and was able to complete the Graphic Design course but not able to complete the Web Design portion. I was given an opportunity to do an internship at Ridge Assembly of God church in Davenport Florida from March 2018 to August 2018 assisting in designing service programs, advertisements and logo re-design presentations. I LOVE designing and creating eye-catching work utilizing bold colors and styles but am versatile to all sorts of things according to the customers tastes and desires.
My first ever trial into Adobe Illustrator produced this piece that was fueled with passion and love in creating it. I and my late aunt Josephine were animate lovers of science fiction movies and TV shows spending hours eating popcorn while being glued to the TV to lose ourselves in the fictional universe. I dedicated this to her memory as she absolutely loved James T. Kirk and Scotty.
My colleague whom I do Freelance Graphic Design work for his clothing line (Square Bitness Clothing) started his own online radio station and soon to be podcast. He came to me with an idea but no way to fully express how he wanted. After about an hour of brainstorming I came up with this simple design which is 1 of 2. It is now his logo he uses and getting national exposure, soon to be available on Apple iTunes!
