So I'm a Graphic Designer.
What does that mean? It means I dream about color schemes and am maybe a little too fond of Helvetica. It means I judge the legitimacy of anyone who has less than stellar graphics or websites (including myself, at times) and scoff at anything typed in Comic Sans.
But what does that mean for you? It means that I am invested in, and feel personally responsible for creating great design. But design is more than just using trendy colors and this year's hot fonts. Yes, I want things to look great, but the central focus of any design is to effectively communicate a message. That's what my job is as a graphic designer; to communicate your content in a visually appealing way.
Anyway, some more information about who I am. I grew up in Norfolk, Nebraska and went to Northeast Community College originally for Architectural Drafting, before switching to Graphic Design. Eventually I transferred to Wayne State College to get my B.S. Degree. Several months later I moved to Lincoln and I love it here. There's great restaurants, some nice nature trails for peaceful walks or sweaty jogging/heaving sessions, and of course, Husker Athletics. I'm currently working a couple part-time in-house graphic design jobs, one at The Fort and one at Southeast Community College. I am interested in freelancing, and would be open to a full-time opportunity.
I have ample experience in print design, and I'm always playing around with logo ideas, illustrations, and icons. I'm slowly improving my skills in motion graphics and video editing, and I also have a passion for writing.
