Are you just the lettering guy?
Not really, but I do enjoy working on projects that afford me the opportunity to communicate via custom illustrative forms. More than any other design specialty, I love lettering because it is expressive, captivating and memorable.
Besides lettering and typography, I also enjoy other aspects of design such as brand development, motion graphics, web design and UI/UX. I was a generalist before I became a versatile lettering specialist.
Is this something you’ve always wanted to do?
Of course. As a kid, I was speech impaired, and art was the only tool I depended on for self expression. By art I mean; paintings, writing, music, dance etc. I’ve always loved art in its purest form. I’m not surprised it’s become my profession.
