I specialize in Design, and have been doing so since I was a kid. Starting with crayon on a freshly painted wall, to designing with a mouse and keyboard on a computer screen. My artistic abilities gave me the opportunity to pursue a career which I love.

DEsign different

A personal venture of mine, DesignDifferent was created as an outlet for me to explore anything and everything creatively. Print has been a long time passion of mine, I started out in the industry and am now finding myself reverting back to my roots.

Fuel Rebranding

Where ideas ignite. That's what happens at Fuel. After several years, Fuel was in need of some rebranding. The goal: to create a simple, modern and classic style. The outcome: see for yourself. When creating, I felt the essence of the word 'Fuel' had to still come out, but in a subtle way. The curves in each of the letters are meant to insinuate fire and flame, while the tagline helps propel that feeling, empowering, sparking and ultimately igniting ideas.
