Taylor Sanchez, Graphic Design
How does one truly see themselves in their given passion in life? In their talents that have blossomed since their childhood years. I have created many things from when I could first pick up a crayon to currently creating images that inspire the mind. What could I think about that would resemble who I am as a graphic designer? Thinking back to my childhood – I thought of a couple things that could reflect my works and myself. First were the dragonflies which have a special, significant meaning to me. They resemble freedom of creativity, and an incandescent joy that is felt while creating designs. When I see these tiny flittering creatures, I also see God’s love and grace. Whenever there are times of doubt and despair – suddenly a dragonfly would fly by my side letting me know that everything was going to be okay. Second was the phrase “think outside the box”. I recall the funny memory when I was in elementary school; looking up at my mother with a quizzical brow, “There’s a box? Since when?” For all I knew, creativity flowed free with no limitations.
Dragonflies are ambassadors of Creation as well as spirits of the imagination. So, I have a few of them flying out of a cardboard box symbolizing the release of creativity and inspiration. Thinking “outside the box”. There are six dragonflies which represent my family and I. I wanted my logo to have colors that represented inspiration, joy, and creative freedom. When I think about creation, I think of my favorite color purple. A color that represents a variety of emotions within a designer as well as a consumer. The reason why I chose to write my name as T. Sanchez is because “T” is the nickname my family gave me. I chose the typeface ITC Cheltenham Std is because I wanted a fun, flowing type that reflected the creative flow of designing. I want future clients to be able to see that I have a lot of original “outside the box” ideas, and create things that will capture the imagination and inspire others.
