Jamez Shepherd

Graphic Designer & Environment Artist


For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been extremely curious and sensitive towards beauty. Whether it be audio, visual, or just a thought, I love breaking things down and finding a new emotion to experience. As with graphic design, just because something looks right doesn’t mean it feels right. But I don’t think of myself as just a ‘graphic’ designer; I have a passion to challenge myself, to build, to engineer, to create.

SKILLS

It’s my personal opinion that labeling skills in graphical format on a resume is a bit egotistical (what is 100%?), so I had my wife, family, and colleagues score me (and make suggestions). Besides, I’m a graphic designer… should I not be presenting my skills in visual format rather than written?
