I love the “CREATION” aspect of design: To take an idea/vision, and bring it to life. Especially when my “canvas space” is an entire wall.

The Student Athlete Building on Brigham Young University campus had a wall needing to be replaced. They showed me the wall I would be working on, and explained what changes needed to be made. I actually really like the “Classic BYU” image they already had, but they wanted something “up to date”. Besides their few specific changes, BYU granted me total design freedom. In this blog entry I will share with you my personal process from VISION to CREATION. Your feedback is very welcome. Enjoy.

Here is a little insider of how I work as a Graphic Designer: When someone hires me for a project they first explain to me (through email, phone, or in person) what the project is, their own vision and goals for the project, and any other needed information. I then create multiple “mock-ups” based off of their explanation. They can then pick, choose, or even request change to any of the designs. Their vision becomes my vision, and in the end, their satisfaction is my satisfaction.
