Showcase & Discover Creative Work

James VIola

Graphic Designer

I'm a perpetual student of design on a constant journey to better myself and my skills. I believe design can be more than a neat layout and an eye catching logo. I believe it can speak to our generation and move us to action.

I perpetuate the attitude to my peers that graphic design is a contemporary form of art that can propel an entire movement and change a person's way of thinking.
