I remember my mom’s paintings hanging at the walls of my grandmother’s house. My mom went to art school when she was young, and also I remember my dad being so into photography, always looking for the best place to take a family portrait. So I guess those first memories must have been stuck in my head. I was always drawing when I was a child, I remember it was my favorite thing to do and it lasted to my teenage years when I discovered music. It made sense for me to keep on the creative field and to decide to study design.
My first crush with graphic design was for sure album covers. Appetite for Destruction (Gun’s and Roses), Nevermind (Nirvana), Ramones (Ramones), Black Flag (every album), Revolver (The Beatles) and The Dark Side of The Moon( Pink Floyd) are some that I remember had a big impact on me. I remember my cousin had a poster of Pink Floyd The Wall art with the drawing of the hammers marching, that blew my mind.
I’m a graphic designer focus on Creative Branding and Illustration. I’m also part time photographer and musician.
Smile and nod to people I don’t really like.
Today we have, more than ever, amazing tools that help us promote what we do, artists I mean. Literally in seconds we can reach people from all over the world. I didn’t have that when I was starting, so my advice would be try very hard to find your own thing, style, voice, embrace your weirdness and focus on make it great. Clients will come.
