What does your Visions logo mean to you?

My logo symbolizes my work and interests. I tend to lean towards a more mid-century, vintage feel but add a modern and personal twist. It is innovative, and fun similar to the majority of my work and inspiration.

What is the dream project for you?

A dream project would be a custom typeface book that would symbolize portions of my life. It would be decorative, colorful and fun. It would be something personal but also functional for others to use for their own projects and enjoyment. It would be nice to find similar interests or experiences with other designers through my personal take on typography. (Communicating through a form of communication)

What inspires you creatively?

Nature has always inspired me, whether it is the colors or texture of a forest or an animal. A lot of mid century design and designers. I really appreciate the functionality of this time. Much of the architecture, art, and furniture is so creative and designed to be functional. In addition to the mid century period, I find all different periods and trends to be inspiration. I tend to pick from their characteristics and add a modern flare to it.

What is the biggest challenge you've faced and how did you overcome it?

One of the biggest challenges I have faced designwise, is feeling a lack of creativity. This has made me feel discouraged, unmotivated and affects my mental health. What has helped is doing something I enjoy. I will often go on a hike, roller skate or get in touch with nature to feel a sense of calm and find inspiration again. After some endorphins kick in, I can brainstorm with a new perspective.
