Abstract/Artist Statement

Graphic design is a powerful tool that many people often take for granted. The problem, nowadays, is that there is significantly more bad design than good design. Anyone with a computer and design programs thinks they are a Graphic Designer, but design is not just about making things look nice on the page. It is a way of conveying messages and projecting ideas through images and text. An education in graphic design is crucial. To me, design is ultimately about delivering something visually appealing that targets an audience and for the client to enjoy the designs they are being delivered. My goal is to tackle these notions of bad design in order to create visually aesthetic pieces that maintain functionality while creating strong visual impact. Through the use of the elements and principles of design: color, shape, texture, space, form, unity/harmony, balance, hierarchy, emphasis, and similarity/contrast designers I can ensure good design within my work.
