My name is A.J.
I love to design.
I am constantly fascinated by design - from the technology that surrounds us, the interfaces that make our lives easier/complicated, the billboards we try to ignore to the ads that inform our purchases, the clothes we wear and the houses in which we live.
Design is always around us.
I have a B.A. in Graphic Design from California State University Northridge in '09 and an A.A. in General Art from Pasadena City College in '06 (which I always add because my years there were amazingly important to my career.)
Since then, I've worked for in-house design teams, agencies and studios in industries such as automotive, entertainment, editorial, packaging, consumer goods and non-profit causes.
When I freelance, my work ranges from logo and branding, experience and event design to illustration and vector work.
I can operate as a lone wolf but excel best in a pack. When working with a team, I emphasize collaboration and encourage a democratic design process. Everyone's opinion should and will be heard, resulting in amazing creative.
Communication is a great art form and I simply want to be a part of it.
