How to Design a Graphic for Your Job
How to design a graphic for your job?
That’s the question this designer from the United States is looking to answer.
As a graphic designer for a major American company, she says her job involves working with clients, both big and small, to design their websites, logos, and other promotional materials.
Her work includes designing the logo for a new clothing line and the logos for her online dating site, as well as for her personal brand, Positivity, which she launched in February.
In the process, she is also trying to craft the logo of a new digital art project, titled “A Journey Into Beauty,” which explores beauty through fashion and art.
A professional graphic designer from New York, she also works for a graphic design agency and has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Forbes.
She is an avid traveler and enjoys cooking, cycling, and traveling.
The first thing that stood out about her designs was how simple they are.
“I am a designer with a background in graphic design and web design,” she says.
“When I was young, my mom made me learn to use Photoshop and Illustrator, and when I graduated from high school, I learned to draw.”
She says the inspiration for the project was a simple concept: she wanted to explore how people communicate and interact in everyday life.
“There’s an age difference between the older generation, which is more comfortable with computers and smartphones, and the younger generation, who is more of a digital-first culture,” she explains.
She chose the term “digital art” because it has become a buzzword for designers.
“The digital art trend is so mainstream now,” she adds.
“It’s not a trend you see in a lot of other design and marketing departments.”
The design for the logo that she used in the project is a simple white square, with an arrow on top.
“For me, that’s what it is about, it’s about creating something that people will be happy with,” she concludes.
She recommends using an old-school font, a sans serif, as it is less text-heavy and more visually appealing.
For her clients, her work has a very visual aesthetic.
“They want a logo that is not too heavy, that has an old school feel,” she emphasizes.
“In the end, they want it to be an old style, but still a modern design.”
For those who don’t know her, she has worked at a variety of major American companies, including American Airlines, the National Hockey League, and a variety other corporations.
She currently works as an editorial director for the National Center for Digital Marketing.
“I am not a designer,” she continues.
“My work is not meant to be a career path.
It’s meant to inspire and be an outlet for creativity and imagination.”
