REMEMBER THAT ILLUSTRATION FROM THE BOOK YOUR MOM READ TO YOU AS A KID?
The one that still surfaces in your memory when you pass the “junior” section at the library? Or that delightful painting which hung above your grandparents’ mantel that comes waltzing into your mind the moment you smell smoke wafting from a chimney? We all have those certain memories that we associate with things we once saw. Things that inspired us, made a lasting impression on us, and shaped us into who we are today.
As humans, we are moved by visuals. We like to touch and feel and immerse ourselves in something and hold onto it; and when we can no longer do that, we lock that image away in our memories so we can reach back and pull it out on days when we need to revisit home, remember a loved one, or just laugh a little.
As a designer, I have the privilege of making a lasting impression on people, inspiring them, and motivating them through visual communication. I want to captivate people with whimsy, nostalgia, attention to detail, and passion. Passion for these people whose memories my designs will influence.
