When did you start designing, and how did you turn it in to your profession?

After graduating college with a Graphic Design degree, I started working as a graphic designer for a cycling apparel company in Northern New England where I am from. I honed my skills and began to define my style. I felt that I needed to branch out on my own and have been doing freelance ever since. A few months ago I moved out to Portland Oregon and have been loving it. Great clients and a fun city to live in.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Everything, but my majority of my ideas come from comics, tattoos, and most importantly artists I admire. I look through other sites and other designer’s portfolios and see what they are doing usually its better than mine. We are all copycats I suppose.

If you could give a single piece of advice to up-and-coming designers, what would it be?

Get a website. Get a website. Get a website. Its the best thing you can do right now. Most clients aren’t going to call you and ask can you send me something from your harddrive. They need to see your work and what you can do before they are going to let you design anything for them. Keep it simple and just showcase your work.
Networking is really important to, be an online presence. Talk with people, give advice, and write tutorials for other website. Be proactive the more exposure you can get the more people with think about you next time they need something done.
