Hello, my name is Cameron Garcia and I am a 24 years old Freelance Graphic Designer & Animator based in Orange County CA. I was born and raised in Palm Springs California, yes I know, gross the desert, but it was a quiet little place that taught me a lot and holds a special place in my heart. After 18 years in 120 degree summer, I decided to head out east just a little to attend Northern Arizona University, where I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Communications. Now I know your thinking, he left California only to go to another desert? Well Northern Arizona, Flagstaff to be exact, is a small little mountain town that is full of art, music, and great people. If you haven't ever visited or been, I highly recommend you stop on by while your passing through. After graduation I moved back to California, where I am currently living and working as a Freelance Designer.?
So why design? What makes this job so amazing? Well I'll tell you, what makes design so amazing is that it's all around us. Everyday, almost every waking moment has some sort of designed element that had to be created. It doesn't matter if you notice or not, but good and bad design is all around us. Whether it is a brands logo, a tee shirt from a famous skate company, packaging of you favorite flushable moist toilet wipes, WHATEVER... someone, somewhere designed and created it. Now I don't know about you, but I find it pretty amazing that one person or persons could have that much impact and influence on the mass media. Create a poster and save the world, probably the one single common belief among designer everywhere. So the next time your walking down the street just take a look up and see how many deigned things you can spot, it will amaze and shock you how much design plays a part in our daily lives.
