Making is not dependent on a specific medium. It is the simple joy of an interdisciplinary life. I teach artists and designers to uniquely situate themselves as innovators by expanding their role beyond the singular focus on materials to the socially responsible role as a maker.
Graphic design is a process that harnesses energy and enthusiasm with stimulating information to promote change. The best designers have a strong foundation focusing on balance, contrast and unity, a sensitivity to typography and creative curiosity. With these tools, a designer's mind is loaded with great potential.
Photography reflects, promotes, and challenges ideas. To create amazing images, the photographer has to combine compelling compositions with social imperatives. More than individual fantasy, the photograph is direct conduit between maker and viewer. This unique form of engagement makes its one of the most compelling mediums.
