“Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll does.” -David Carson

As a designer, I am a firm believer in creating a bold statement. In order to create a clean design, you must “un-design” it as well, removing any elements that are unnecessary. Many of my images are based on an underlying grid, where every element finds itself aligned with another shape on the page. My foundations are inspired by the work of Jan Tsichichold and Herbert Bayer; I believe that mixing their strong design fundamentals with modern techniques creates compelling images. I often make graphic silhouettes or simplify objects into their most basic elements in order to create an interesting, uncluttered design.
