I became interested in design first as an artist, sketching photos of athletes from Sports Illustrated. Then, as the internet matured in the early 2000s, my interests shifted to web design. I would study HTML source code for hours, teaching myself how to write it on my own. I took a short detour into print design, which proved to be extremely valuable. I brought my knowledge of the web and print to Graydian in 2008 and I haven’t looked back.
