Research, planning, balance, and aesthetic are the driving forces behind my choices when it comes to a new design challenge. In design, and in life, you learn that there are many different approaches to one problem. Through careful analysis and planning there is always one solution that is more fitting than the rest. The ability to recognize the best choice to a problem, being able to come up with a broader approach to an issue, and then having the understanding to narrow the scope of vision for the aesthetics of the project are all important skills to have as a designer. With these abilities I have gained over my career at UArts — and freelancing jobs on the side — I fine tuned my skills and found the confidence to work in many different mediums. I have been able to better my critical and creative thinking; and I’m looking forward to my future in design so that I may push myself and my problem solving skills even further.
