THE PROFESSIONAL

I am a highly motivated graphic artist with experience in both traditional illustration and functional design. Able to combine the needs of a project with contemporary trends and ideas in order to create the most effective visuals possible. With insight into both the aesthetic and practical aspects of design I aim to balance form and function in every assignment.
