The Man In Question
It all seems so stark at the moment... I mean the page is bare. Not much to look at here, but, I promise, as soon as I get the hang of this thing there will be.
As a designer I find it so important to have my work in the public eye but it is equally as important for any prospective employer to be able to judge my character.
"A blog?" they may ask, "what on earth is that?"
Simply put it is my mis/adventures, exploitations, experiences and stories all rolled up into a neat ball of pocket-fluff. My most recent designs, pictures from a weekend outing, a story about the biggest fish I ever caught that got away, more designs and all the trimmings of a great blog.
By trade I am a 3D animator but having taught myself Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Motion and the Final Cut Pro suite I figured a venture into the design world more suitable. I found that during my studies I was creatively "stumped" and produced very little work I could be proud of. I graduated and spent a few months managing a coffee shop where I was afforded time (during the quiet periods) to sit and draw. My illustrations became more exciting and skills osmosed out of nowhere. I would get home in the evenings and spend hours in front of my Mac, designing and making mock logos, stationary, anything I could think of. Unfortunately (and it seems to be a recurring nightmare) my Mac was stolen as was most of my work. I rekindled a lot of what was lost and started again.
This is where I will have it all: illustrations, designs, photos, stories and a few random bitties here and there.
I hope you enjoy what you see and if you do then email me firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk business. I am young, eager and dying to make my name as a designer.
