We are a visual people.
D E S IGN P H I L O SOPHY We are a visual people. Everyday we encounter companies using media and graphic design to compete for that split second of our time where they try to convince us to buy into their product, ideals or lifestyle.

Although I have degrees that say Iâ€™ve complete my education, I will forever be a student of great design, always looking, always studying, always learning.
problems that need to be solved. No longer am I just a designer but a problem solver.
