“I have always been a designer. It’s just what I do.”
As a father, husband and freelance graphic designer, I take on many hats and wear them with pride. Nothing brings me more joy than to spend time with my two little ones, hear my wife’s laughter, and earn my living by helping my client’s reach their full potential. I find that the same qualities I use in my profession apply in all of my life’s roles: diligence, commitment, and being able to create something beautiful.
However, being a graphic designer is so much more than being able to design a pretty graphic. It is about listening to my clients, learning about their target consumers, and giving them a useful product in a timely manner.
I have always been a designer. It’s just what I do. However, being good at it comes from the years of experience I gained working for companies from entry-level design, production artist and project management.
This experience means I am able to work one-on-one with clients and perform to a high standard on multiple projects at the same time. I have learned how to design great pieces without wasting client’s time or money.
I take the view that whether a job takes ten minutes or ten hours, it is always just as important to the client and should also be to me. I treat all collaborations, large and small, with the same attention and care that every customer deserves.
