Allow me to better introduce myself...
Greetings, hello, and welcome!
My name is Brittany, and I’m a recent graduate (Class of 2021) of the York University / Sheridan College joint program in design, also known as YSDN.
My main areas of focus in design mainly revolve around branding, book and editorial design, communication design, and all things typography, including hand-lettering and calligraphy. I also love to draw my own illustrations, so when I'm not designing, you'll most likely find me drawing or painting something, either traditionally or digitally!
Keep scrolling if you want to learn a little bit more about me! We might even have something in common.
To watch movie and TV marathons at home, especially during a cold or rainy day. My favourite genres are horror and thrillers.
Dogs, especially my 13-year-old West Highland Terrier. He is like a child to me (and also my best friend).
Fries, pasta and anything with chocolate. (Not together, obviously).
Wearing sneakers over any other kind of footwear... even in the summer.
... Did I mention I like dogs?
I'm not a fan of...
Soap operas because of how dramatic they are.
Overly-crowded and loud places.
Folding the corner of a page to bookmark where I left off. (I am very meticulous with my books FYI).
Any other type of tea besides orange pekoe.
Winter (too cold, so me no like).
Why graphic design?
Growing up, I was always known as "the art kid", so I guess having a creative future was meant to be. I've always loved to be able to create things, and later discovered that design allows me to continue creating, while also having the ability to communicate with, impact and better the world around us.
I see design as a way to help tell a story or carry a concept, inform and expose people to new and important things, and to inspire them along the way. Plus, it also helps that designing is fun.
