Branding, Illustration

I'm an illustrator and designer based in Perth. After years of scribbling I decided to put my drawing skills to good use in the design field. My inspiration for my design/art comes from pop culture, anime as well as other artists/designers. 

I use my downtime to improve my current skillset and pick up new techniques.



What areas of graphic design are you most interested in?
I really enjoy packaging, branding and illustration. I think these are the areas where I really push my concepts outside the box.

What inspired you to become a graphic designer?
I had always done art in high school but in year 10 they offered a graphic design course and learning what it was all about got me hooked. Knowing there was a career that allowed me to use my creative skills to communicate a message to an audience was the most exciting idea in the world to me.

What do you get up to outside of TAFE?
Outside of TAFE, I do my own personal illustrations projects, mainly concept art/character design. If I'm not doing any design or illustration work you'll find me catching up with friends or gaming (mainly Counter-Strike or Overwatch).

What movie title best describes your life and why?

If you could remove one thing from existence, what would it be?
Papyrus…
