My choice to pursuit work in brand identity was driven by the relationships I fostered through my first few branding clients. It allowed me to connect with business people in a way that felt genuine, and necessary. I was able to take a dream they had, and realize it through better personal understanding, and helped them find a strong sense of direction in their own work. The satisfaction of a client feeling understood, and trusting me with their livelihood is an honor to behold. This work is the most rewarding use of my artistic talents I have experienced.
