Welcome to my design portfolio

To say I like design (digital or print) would be an understatement. The world that is design, has always been one of my true passions in life. To me design is the embodiment of observation, contemplation and action.

The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else…The driving force of a career must come from the individual.
Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!
– Earl Nightingale, Motivational Speaker

"The devil is always in the details". I always believed that 90 percent of the work can be done without any problems. It's often that last 10 percent will be the most trying and tedious. Those are the times where keeping a keen eye on the details will help a project from going into purgatory.

Here's are a few companies I've worked with so far

No employer today is independent of those about him. He cannot succeed alone, no matter how great his ability or capital.
Business today is more than ever a question of cooperation.
~ Orison Swett Marden

He was always reliable, pleasant to work with and detail oriented in his work, both as a photographer and the web content manager.

I'm convinced that without bad design, the world would be a far less stimulating place; we would have nothing to marvel over and nothing to be nostalgic about.

~ Carrie Phillips

With his strong understanding for typography, color, and composition, Brian developed designs that were not only popular with our clients, but effective from a production standpoint.

Just found that that doing an image for a background is the thing of the past http://www.patternify.com/

Who doesn't love Envato?

For those who haven’t been educated by the several sites of Envato.This is the place to get ideas, understandings and overall good stuff for your design needs.

Logos, Logos and more logos

Today I had a project that needed to design a sort of superhero (superman and batman) type logos. I did a short search and found a great site http://www.logoorange.com/.
They not only have a great library but you can download examples of some great classics from a to z.

Look what I found

I was trolling the web for a generic youtube logo for a project I was working on today and I found an amazing set of social media icons for free.
This was really cool because they have not only the color but also black and white as well.
