As a Graphic Designer, I enjoy problem-solving. It was always interesting to me to see how art can affect the way people think and feel. As a designer, one of the most complex aspects of the job is making something that everyone can understand. I view the start of a new project as the start of a new journey to helping people. I enjoy the process of coming up with different design ideas. Because of my abstract tendencies, I aspire to create ideas that go beyond traditional expectations and looking for unique visual solutions. My work created during the spring 2020 semester centered on the theme of escapism, using graphic design as an escape for myself and my audience. Many of my works create a new world or provide an environment for people to distract themselves.
