My work experience and skills.
Design is more than aesthetics, at its simplistic form it is problem solving and finding the best solution of functionality for a problem. Creating a strong concept that defines a clear message in a easy digestible way.
I think a Designer at its simplest form is a Problem Solver, creating & filtering ideas to produce bold & consistent visual solutions. It’s important to solve the challenge of communication. Making it easier for the client & audience to bridge the gap of understanding their message & goals.
Concept + Message + Strategy
The key to strong & timeless design/branding is figuring out a solid concept to build from. It starts with a focus on what message to communicate to your audience. This helps lead to putting a strategy together of carefully curated content to build a project or brand. Combined, all these aspects should lead to audience conversions and goals set.
All the previous aspects lead to creating stunning visual design. Creates a strong connection between client and their audience. This involves using multiple design mediums to successfully communicate a message. Utilizing various mediums from a logo design for an overall brand, to web or app design to push a product. Ultimately the Design is the final solution to execute the visual communication.
