One of the reasons I enjoy the digitally based work of graphic design is because of the versatility of the medium. I can create a variety of work, or incorporate handmade elements, using the computer. I can work with photography or with illustration, and I am not limited to one specific area. My best works are those with which I find resonance. If I find some kind of connection to the subject or imagery this leads to a more personal interest in the design and, overall, a more successful finished product.
I begin a piece with a simple sketch on paper, often with basic imagery or a short written description of what I want to create. I then move to the computer to further develop the idea, and there I begin to bring all of the elements of the design together. When the work is going well and all of the aspects are coming together, my focus narrows; and I feel more confident in my work. When everything has come together and I get the sense that all of the parts fit together, I know that the design is complete.
