Design

My design work reflects my illustrative flavor, but branches into other styles as well. A logo especially needs to project a certain mood that might call for a less illustrative style. As any designer will say, when you know your limits for a project, you can clearly seize the opportunities they create. One of my favorite quotes about limits in creativity is from John Stewart in an interview on NPR’s Fresh Air. He says,

“I’m a real believer creativity comes from limits not freedom … When you have a structure, then you can improvise.”
