Hi I'm Stephen and this is a little about me and why I have this design page on our website.

 

I've always be interested in design. Since I was little I loved to draw and create things, and I had a natural appreciation for beauty. But, as most stories go, I found that my talent as a freelance artist was a bit lacking. It was this reality that really discourage me from pursuing my interest in this area as a profession but not as a passion..

 

As time went by I would dabble in various things but never took myself to

seriously. While in high school I designed a logo for a friend of mine who owned a stereo shop and he accepted it. I was very proud of myself and encourage by acceptance. As time went on and computers came into my life I started to see if I could find another venue for my creative side. Using the computer I mainly design very simple logos which I applied to another of my interests (auto tuning.)

 

However, that didn't last long and soon life and career took over and I found myself as an elementary school teacher. My wife and I moved overseas to South Korea to teach. The school where we worked was a new school of only 3 years and so during our time there the school adopted school colors and a mascot (phoenix).

 

This gave me the opportunity I needed to try designing logos again. Since I'm not an artist by any stretch of the word I had to, and still do, rely on royalty free artwork that others have done and I tweak them to my needs which I continue to do to this day.

 

To make a long story short I went crazy creating logos for every possible aspect of the school's current and future activities and clubs. It was a partial success for me. The school unoffically adopted the business side logo and continues to use it. There are a few other logos they use, but Ive been away for awhile now and I do not know if they adopted any of the others that I created.

 

Additionally, while in Korea our daughter was born and I started video editing so family back home could keep up with her growth. Which consequently, led to my latest endeavor of video editing. I currently video almost all of her important events, and with this experience I have done video editing work for schools, politicans, and family.

 

These pages show my progression and samples of my work in both design and video editing.
