Sometimes in conversation with new people, when I tell them I am a graphic designer they ask me to clarify what that entails. I have even had graphic design students enter my intro course fumbling to define “What is graphic design?” on the first day of class. I was one of those students years ago, because I felt graphic design was such a vast field that couldn’t be defined in one sentence. I have shown this video to each of my intro classes, because it really sums up what graphic designers are capable of in terms of design and output in 6.5 minutes:
With school gearing back up, I would like to share some local projects I have done. My younger twin brothers just finished high school, so my skills have been of use to them the past few years.

Senior yearbook pages:
The plan is for their pages to end up on the same spread, as if they are sitting back-to-back.
I can even design classroom posters for school teachers with their favorite quotes:
Now is a great time to contact me for your back-to-school design needs! If you are unsure if I can try something, give me a shout out. I just may surprise you!
I tell people that I am a graphic artist, because they don’t understand what an advertising illustrator does! 🙂
