Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Ivan Trushin

Minneapolis, MN, USA
I’ve had three diverse years of professional design experience split between a highly-creative design agency, a corporate marketing environment and as a freelance designer with clients around the country. During this time I have cultivated a strong sense for creative branding, an appreciation for beautiful typography and an obsessive eye for detail. I have shown creative initiative in projects ranging from corporate branding campaigns to small business identities; from illustrative package design to custom lettering. It is my belief that design is a delicate balance between beauty and logic. I love what I do and the people I meet along the way.
