I love laughing, biking, concerts and of course everything design.

Bringing ideas, concepts, brands and stories to life and put them into the world is the most exciting part of what I do. Whether that be a logo and brand identity, or a complete marketing campaign. I work in all stages of branding, from conceptualisation right through to execution, design and delivery.

After discovering a love for visual design I studied a Bachelor of Design at the Queensland College of Art in my hometown of Brisbane, Australia. At 24 I moved to Vancouver where I have continued to hone my craft and love for digital design.

With an extensive background in customer service and client support – I combine my skills to deliver effective, targeted and meaningful work. A passionate and hard-working creative who pushes limits and is committed to exceeding expectations.

Damian is actively involved in the design community and an avid blog contributor. He has recently been published by the InVision design blog and presented at Style & Class (a Vancouver meetup for those who design, develop, and create content for the web). As well as my own design blog, I have contributed to agency blogs on topics of accessibility, web design, UX and UI, customer experience, feedback and process – find them on Medium.com.
