When I was 16, I started to replicate a National Geographic Kids magazine in Microsoft Word as a pet project of mine, it being a magazine I loved.

Doing so, I was introduced to a world I never wanted to leave - A world of design. Soaking up every bit of information I could on learning design - books, exhibitions,workshops and the internet, I grew from that beginning to being an expert on AdobeSoftware, to building up a portfolio and creating work my clients love.

When it comes to creating design, I believe very strongly in the concept of minimalism and the fact that Less, is actually more.In a world crowded with slogans, signboards, and information vying for attention, mywork will use sophistication with white space, well thought out color schemes, typographyand attention to detail to grab the viewers attention.

Minimalism will never compromise information. It only turns paragraphs into beautifully comprehensive charts, text into organized sections, and places pictures in ways thatshowcase the beauty the photographer wanted to capture.

Design is a beautiful process, and I something I see in everything and love creating everyday,and I refuse to just do it on the computer - good design begins with going back tobasics, and using solid tools and brushes inspires the work that I create on a computer.

In every project that I set out on creating, I aspire it to be the medium of a huge creative breakthrough that will shake the industry, and I embrace every project with the hope thatthis would be it - if not close.
