I am a design student at Cincinnati State Technical College, studying under the design expertise of Joel Knueven. Having discovered the necessity of creativity to my well-being & happiness in my late 20's, the concept of maximum effectiveness using minimal elements is an area in which I find energy for, driven by my highly process-oriented mind. Also, the love of blending black & white imagery with colored elements is another area I find to be intriguing. A natural affinity towards the written word, the realm of typography presents itself as an area of focus as well. Design is a microcosm of the realization of the need to be intentional in life, and this cover was deemed one of my first major design successes due to its level of intentionality. Thank you, the reader and viewer for the time given to experience my work.
