I grew up using the computer because my father is an IT specialist. I found that over time I was drawn to creating on the computer. With so much support form my family I continued a fascinating trek that led me to graphic design.
I got an opportunity to work for a non-profit company as their graphic designer. Once they had one they realized how much they needed a designer, then developed things for me to do.
These experiences have led me understand the need for graphic designers. The work that I do has been so helpful for getting the word out about what this non-profit does; the same is true for any concept would need to be understood or learned about. That thought made me understand the power of a message, especially when it is clearly transmitted and received.
I feel that understanding the problem in front of me is key. I want people to easily understand the content in front of them. I want my art to be intuitive.
