I am a recent graduate of the Cal State Long Beach ID program (09). I am currently trying to improve my skill set every day and seek an environment to inspire my creativity.
Most designers pride themselves in putting out the coolest, or most aesthetically pleasing, designs around. While I cannot say that my renderings and output are the best around, I feel that I have so much more to offer than simply a hand with a pen in it. I feel strong in leadership ability, crisp and clean communication of ideas through verbal and non verbal contact, and professionalism.
In just the last several months, I have noticed an improvement in my skill set due to newfound motivation, inspiration, and help from friends. I hope that those who see this work realize that I am not just a hand behind the artwork, but rather a voice waiting to be heard. =)
