Most of my work is experimental and personal. Since I am fairly young, still a student, and do not have professional experience with clients, I focus on things that inspire, teach and inform me. Hence, I get inspiration from all kinds of sources, mostly online. These sources thematically, range from blogs/websites on architecture, industrial design, interior design, photography, to graphic design, illustration etc. I believe that ultimately, these creative fields are interconnected and one must not isolate one field from another. For this reason I developed a practice of regularly visiting certain websites (such as Behance Network, ffffound. com, Designspiration. net, baubauhaus.com, pinterest.com, dribbble.com) that showcase the best work from leading online and creative individuals. I constantly search for new foundries, individuals and companies in order to expand my awareness of trends and innovations in visual art, design, photography and other fields that influence the Graphic Design industry.
I consider myself to be an amateur Graphic Designer with focus on Typography and brand development and infographics design. I adore typography for it’s endless forms of communication. My typographic work has been influenced by individuals who are trying to revive old-style typography from late 1900’s, 20’s, 30’s and the 60’s. I tend to take a non-traditional approach to rendering letterforms, similar to approach of House Industries designers - drawing. I started out as a drawer and illustrator. After weighting my prospects of becoming an established visual artist I figured I would not succeed in the contemporary art world and I turned to Graphic Design. Over the past two years, I’ve been learning the design principles, how to translate objects from realistic representation to graphic form using conceptual sketching and detailed documentation, use drawing with the purpose of delivering an idea in the exploration phase of the development of effective communication, developing ideas through improved drawing accuracy and a heightened sensitivity to observation. I studied how letterforms and words are examined with respect to their anatomy and structure, while exploring formal and conceptual relationships between letters and words. In the context of cultural/societal issues, I learned about the impact of effective communication on people's lives. I went through a variety of exercises ranging from the development of graphic form to composition and colour, and developed a visual vocabulary and an aesthetic understanding of how content and message impact on form and communication. I mastered how two-dimensional space is examined through the application of graphic grid structures and conceptual design ideas. I focuses on idea development, methods of research, word/image interaction, meaning, hierarchy and the impact of colour and form on effective communication. Through semester projects, I learned to distill complex ideas into concise and convincing graphic elements.
