Bio: Daniel is a graphic designer currently living and working out of Lake Country, BC. Originally from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Dan has traveled across much of Canada over the years expanding his arts training. After having spent a year at Sheridan Arts Collage in Oakville, Ontario, Dan then moved to Vancouver Island in BC to complete his bachelors degree majoring in graphic design at Vancouver Island University. Upon graduation, Dan then apprenticed as a tattoo designer for a year and a half, further honing his technical skills as an artist. Eventually he would leave this position as lead designer to launch a freelancing design company.
Daniel’s background as a traditional sketch artist has given him a tremendous understanding of form, movement, and proportion. This strong base has allowed Dan to easily transition his artistic style to all types of media, painting, sculpture, and digital artwork. Now, armed with a keen understanding of digital software programs Dan is able to offer an almost endless array of illustrative styles from simple cartooning to the most complex visual landscapes you can imagine.
Dan may specialize in illustration, but he is also an accomplished web and print designer. Most of Daniel’s designs have combine various elements of his skill sets to create custom work that complement the project as a whole. This has often included things like; photography to enhance a website, illustrations to help retain audience attention and understanding, or the use of design ratios to guide an viewers eye through print material. This cross disciplinary approach to design helps ensure that Dan’s work can stand alone as both a great piece of functional design and a beautiful captivating piece of art.
