How did you get your start in graphic design?
The first time I got introduced to graphic design was when my high school teacher asked me to design an invitation card and t-shirt for her. To think that I only used windows applications like Microsoft Word and Publisher at the time!
Who taught you how to draw?
My older brother showed me his hand drawings. I was amazed by his art to the point that it didn't give me the confidence to draw (you know siblings rivalry haha). After that I saw him using Photoshop and realized that I could learn it myself. Then in college, I joined to our school publication and was hired as a graphic artist, and later promote as Creative Director.
Who inspires you to continue your passion for graphic design?
My dreams inspire me. And what inspires me more is the eagerness to spread the wisdom and knowledge I have in design.

Drawing and designing let me express my ideas and make me feel great.

I usually do logos and page designs. But typography is a must for me as it has no limit to it.
