As the cliche goes, beauty is more than what meets the eye. Design follows suit, carrying its weight from initial ideation to the creative process, then presented in the final piece. Capturing ideas visually is a nonlinear messy endevour. Yet the behind-the-scenes work in design is what creates mastery, and is why the heart of visual communication is the creative process from start to finish. While I cannot take you back in time to show you the back-and-forth editing of my illustrations and designs, I can walk you through the evolution of my portfolio.
