Who am I? I’m a friend, a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, and an aunt. I’m the girl who gets told I’m an “old soul” by elderly folk, but everyone asks what high-school I attend when they first meet me. I’m much older than I look, I promise.
I’ve dabbled in Graphic Design most of my life. When I was 11 my dad brought home a copy of Adobe Photoshop 4.0. His work was upgrading to Photoshop 5 and offered him a sealed copy of the outdated version that they no longer had a use for. This might not be where it all started, but I’d say this was when I went digital.
I’ve spent my entire life pursuing some form of art, from music to fiber-arts—weaving, spinning, and knit-wear design—but in between these many pursuits I always came back to graphic design. It was fascinating when I realized that a good graphic designer can become invisible within their own work, and yet bring attention to and influence the way a person thinks about a product or event, sometimes even an entire company.
Once you discover you have this ability, it’s like discovering you have the super power to become invisible and control minds, and it’s hard to leave it alone! But, as with all super powers, with great power comes great… well, you know the rest.
