Justin Ladia

Graphic Designer

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
I’m an energetic, enthusiastic, and unabashedly nerdy interdisciplinary designer formally educated in interior design with a [self-taught] passion for graphic and web design. I’ve delved into the development of different types of work widely spanning various scales, and I’m particularly interested in the application of two dimensional practices into three dimensions. Besides my various technical assets, I fare well under a collaborative environment whether that is between the client and myself, the team I am a part of, or both. Practice, process, and learning are all very important to me, and I constantly attempt to improve throughout each of my projects.
