Hello, my name is David Burroughs II. As an experienced artist in any creative field, it's important to show clients that this isn't your first rodeo as their graphic artist, t-shirt designer, branding expert, or whatever title fits the occasion. My ultimate goal is not just to give clients what they want, but to give them what they ask for. There is a difference. Most artists focus solely on the visual aspect, while neglecting the psychology behind it. I mean, there are people that honestly believe that they can just rip clipart from Google and write their name in a cool font. LOL... That's where I come in.
When I'm not creating and deconstructing worlds in Adobe Creative Suite, I'm coaching others on how to realize their brand beyond the status quo. Art has a beautiful way of sharing subliminal messages and as a forward thinker, I've made it my purpose to bring that element of storytelling to my work.
I've had the pleasure of working with everything from local businesses and non-profit organizations to Grammy-nominated and award-winning artists. It hasn't always been about graphic design for me, but I consider myself blessed to have shared my creativity with so many great clients over the years.
