Thanks for visiting my graphic design page. You will see photos with captions of projects I’ve worked on and how I completed them. I first became interested in graphic design in April 2010 when I took a class at BYU-Idaho titled “Visual Media.” That was the first time I was introduced to the Adobe Suite and since then I feel I’ve come a long way.
Graphic Design is meaningful to me because it allows me to tap into my creativity and experiment with ideas in an extremely educational atmosphere. The basic principles of graphic design, (contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity) are principles that help me visually portray things that words alone can’t express. These principles can be applied in other aspects of life as well.
Ultimately, graphic design helps me to access my inner child and communicate in a way I want to. It enables me to make ideas happen. It’s something I never knew I could be half decent at, but when I put my mind to it, I saw signs of growth.
