I'm a graphic designer with over ten years of experience, and owner of Nisbet Creative for the last five years. I've had the privilege of working for a host of clients on everything from branding and marketing, to package and vehicle design, as well as web design and development.
Design. How to measure out a grid for a book, magazine or website. Choosing the right typeface for the right application. And knowing that Comic Sans is appropriate for something (but not for your brand).
Patience. I have very little.
"It always works out."
My high school art teacher, for believing in me that I could make a career out of being creative.
Being able to think six steps ahead of the current step I'm on.
I'm 100% in on being a designer. I've never had a backup career!
I usually remember the most random, non-important things. Often in detail.
