ABOUT ME

Originally from the east coast, my name is Rick and I am

a Visual / Graphic Designer here in  Los Angeles.

Not one to rest on my laurels,  I continually strive to discover my creative potential, continuously exploring new opportunities and challenges; keeping my work fresh, modern, aesthetically pleasing and engaging.

 

Working with various styles and techniques gives me ultimate inspiration; both handmade and digital media gives my craftsmanship an unmistakable, creative edge.

 

 

I can easily jump between various media-types while working on projects - my expertise includes: branding, typography, print design, photo-manipulation, interactive design and illustration, as well as multimedia, animation, web design and photography.

 

Downtime favorites!  Interests that get me pumped and recharged: drawing & painting,  learning about wellness, jamming tunes with my guitar, collecting vinyl records, exploring the city, specialty eateries - craft beers, the outdoors and watching movies.
