HI, I’m Justin
I’m a graphic designer and a visual communication specialist who has a passion for creating and solving problems. Due to my background in classical art and history, I have a very eclectic style, which allows me to work with my clients and deliver designs in whatever style fits their needs. My personal style tends to combine both classical and modern elements to create a unique blend of conventional and contemporary aesthetics that are unlikely to ever go out of style.

Digital Art and PhotographyOne of my passions is using the Adobe Suite, particularly Photoshop, to create stunning works of art. I like to incorporate my own photos to execute certain series to tell a story or retell classic stories with a modern interpretation. This skill often helps me in designing imagery for websites and print collateral for branding and marketing.
Web DesignI focus on front end web design with some knowledge of HTML and CSS. My preferred platform to design efficient and beautiful websites is WordPress and the vast number of themes offered.
Print DesignEven though we are in a digital age, I still believe print design is essential for any designer to understand. I have experience in both digital and offset printing creating marketing material such as posters, flyers, cards, brochures, and even annual reports. I also have had experience in full book layout and design.
Case StudiesWorking as a marketing designer, I often find myself working extensively on projects that necessitate a wide skill set. Here I have compiled projects that demonstrate every aspect of design for a project campaign, from inception to execution showing the process along the way.

This is My Process
After we discuss your objectives and the best way to accomplish them, preferably over a cup of coffee, I start with research on the goal to familiarize myself with the field of interest to give you the best
After the project discovery phase, I draft multiple concepts for the design. I first start out with paper and pencil and then after narrowing down my ideas, I move on to the digital side. Nothing sparks creativity more than holding a pencil in your hand and having a blank sheet of paper in front of you.
After drafting out concepts, I refine the concepts and make them ready to show. I like to give a few choices to help you get exactly what you’re looking for. If for some reason, the initial designs are close but not quite what you are envisioning, never fear. We can revise this until we are both satisfied with the final design of the piece.
After all the work is done, I will give you exactly what you wanted. I will work tirelessly to make sure you are extremely satisfied as a client and I am proud to have designed every project I have worked on.
Together, we can create something great!
