Designer Statement

As a designer, my work varies. It can be playful and unique or structuralized and in order. As a person, it’s important for me to experiment with both styles of formality and simplicity. It reflects who I am. I can be formal and organized but I’m also humorous and high-spirited, so it’s a perfect reflection of my design work.

It’s important that my work resolves problems and invokes a response from the viewer. A designer's job is to find solutions to problems. Whether I have to create a visual solution that comes from my own mind or if I have to become a creative outlet and help translate someone’s ideas into reality, I am eager and confident I can accomplish the challenge.

My work varies from structured event posters to comical illustrations. I have a type of freedom I can work with but at the same time, it challenges me enough to be strategic and thoughtful of composition and elements.

My influences come from a variety of artists, designers, and creators. I enjoy art and design history. Two styles that stand out to me are post-modernism and modernism because of how full of information they are and how they contrast so well.  I also just love to observe and respond. I will use my senses to interpret things and take pictures or notes about those observations. The variety of styles I use very much originate from my knowledge and observations. 

I am passionate because of the opportunity I have to create and help people. I love finding creative ways to solve solutions and communicating to the world. There’s a special type of gratification when my work has the ability to affect others. This ties into my direction too. My goal is to create designs that can impact, inspire, or inform people.
