Me as a designer: I have always been fascinated with art and very creative from an early age. With lessons from my artistic uncle to art classes in high school I went on to studying Graphic Design at the Art Institute. I figured that with a passion for art in an every changing world of technology why not do something where I can do what I love and keep up with the technology. It was there at the Art Institute that I discovered a real joy in the logo design area. Just recently I started a company called Creation Graphics 7 that specializes in Logo Design along with offering other services as listed in my profile. Creation Graphics 7: Is a start up design company specializing in Custom Logo Design. From Creation to Completion of the design, customer service and satisfaction is our priority. So throughout the process we encourage your involvement to effectively represent the vision you have for your business, company presentation, firm identity or specific design needs.
