RISE design studio

Lead Designer

Los Angeles, CA, USA
My name is Paul Henderson, owner and lead designer at RISE design studio, my personal outlet for all creative commercial pursuits. I have been doing freelance graphic design work for over 8 years now. My work can probably best be described as dynamic, eye-catching, and clean. I strive to create simple, elegant compositions with sharp lines, while employing a powerful and striking cast of visual elements.

With a background in religious studies, philosophy, and psychology I enjoy creating work that resonates with the mind, body, and soul, in addition to the eye. My style is the direct result of a love for all things sacred, classical, and ancient, and a visual obsession with clarity and simplicity. Over the years I have done everything from logos to billboards and everything in between. I generally do not feel limited by media or application, but I would say my work is best suited for clients that are looking for elements of quality classic design with an artistic edge.
