Hello! My name is Keoni Harrison. I am a graphic designer with interests in advertising, marketing, and business development. I'm from Englewood, New Jersey (NJ/NY Metro Area) and attended school at Rutgers University (NB) where I graduated with a BA in communications. Graphic design has always been a passion of mine. I have a very modern style of design and always try to keep up to date with the latest trends. I also love sports, fashion, food, technology, art, and design. Someday I would love to run my own design firm and make a name for myself in this industry. Feel free to contact me!
