The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation
My design experience begins as a junior in high school, when I was the co-editor-in-chief for my school's yearbook, and I designed almost every page single-handedly. Yearbook is what actually got me interested in design, and it's something that I still haven a passion for now. The advisor at my school has been kind enough to let me come back and aid the new students each year, and as such I've had a hand in the design of the 2013, 2014, and 2015 yearbooks.
For schooling, I attended Tidewater Community College, and took classes at the Visual Arts Center. I graduated from TCC in May 2014, with my Applied Associates Associate of Science in Graphic Design.
A few weeks after graduating I began work as a graphic design intern for The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, where I stayed until April 2015. My work for Colonial Williamsburg was primarily print-based, and I did a variety of jobs, such as working on ads, updating old files, designing posters, and creating paper mock-ups.
My design style is a bit on the simple side—I like things that work and that look nice. All I want as a designer is to make things that are functional and beautiful.
In my designs, I put a lot of focus on color and typography. I love getting to pair typefaces for projects, and feel like it's one of my strong suits.
I like doing identity work, print design, digital design and front-end development—I don't really have any preferences for now in the type of work that I do. I know I'll probably find a niche at some point, but for now I'm just having fun wearing all the hats.
