Favorites

What is your favorite quote?

“With great power comes great responsibility.” – Stan Lee

What is your favorite Chicago spot / event / thing to do?

I really love to go to the Art Institute and walk around for hours. The Ivan Albright stuff is my absolute favorite there. He’s so detailed and his work is super grotesque but utterly facinating. I also really like hanging at the Matchbox with friends. 

Favorite industry resources?

I use Illustrator and Photoshop religiously but most of the time I like to draw it out with just paper and pencil first. Unsplash is my favorite place to grab stock photos from. I use Google Fonts and Adobe Typekit for font selections.

Favorite internet meme?


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How would you explain Graphic Design in three sentences or less to an 8-year old?

It’s about making things look pretty but also make sense at the same time. It’s like telling a story with pictures, color, text and placement.

I’ve Been Everywhere Man – Not the Johnny Cash Story
