About

Hello, my name is Cameron Garcia and I am a 24 years old Freelance Graphic Designer & Animator based in Orange County CA.

I was born and raised in Palm Springs California, yes I know, gross the desert, but it was a quiet little place that taught me a lot and holds a special place in my heart. After 18 year in 120 degree summer, I decided to head out east just a little to attend Northern Arizona University, where I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Visual Communications. Now I know your thinking, he left California only to go to another desert? Well Northern Arizona, Flagstaff to be exact, is a small little mountain town that is full of art, music, and great people. If you haven't ever visited or been, I highly recommend you stop on by while your passing through. After graduation I moved back to California, where I am currently  living and working as a Freelance Designer.

  • - GOALS

    Currently I am working full time as a Freelance Designer, but hopefully sometime in the near future I will be able to a open design studio. I am currently working with a lot of amazingly talented people and we hope to have our own studio up and running soon. This has been a dream of mine ever since I started thinking about what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. Not having people tell you what to do and creating and designing things that your passionate about is something that I have always wanted and worked towards.

  • - A BRIEF HISTORY

    After graduating High School, I moved to Northern Arizona to pursue a career in Civil Engineering. After my first year I decided that although engineering was challenging and interesting, I could not see myself doing that for the rest of my life. So I decided to try my hand a Graphic Design, it seemed like a happy medium between engineering and Art. 3 years and a lot of late nights later, I graduated with my B.F.A in Visual Communications.

     

    After graduation I moved back to Palm Springs for a bit, to do some traveling and figure out where I wanted to do with my life. After about 4 months, I decided to look for jobs in the O.C. as my brother and sister were already living there and I could crash on their couches. After about a week of interviews, I ended up taking a Designer roll at a company called Mapperarti doing map and brochure design for luxury hotels all over the world. After about a year, Mapperarti was no longer the main focus of the company, instead I started to work on branding 3 other umbrella companies, Digimapps, Nutshell WiFi, and Nutshell Pass. This was the main focus of my work and designs for the next year. Although I was also doing some freelance on the side.

     

    As of recent, I have left that company to pursue my dream of opening up my own design studio with some really talented people. I am currently working freelance full time and am working towards gaining more clients and exposure for our new brand. I am excited for what the future holds and cant wait to see where this path leads me.

  • - DESIGN STYLE

    I am a passionate creative, I strive for perfection and love to challenge myself with new ways of designing; whether that be using a medium that I have never used before, or to try new and interesting ways of creating one of my design concepts.

     

    When I design, I want to exemplify certain aspects of my design, I not only want to have a visually interesting design, but have meaning and reason behind every design choice. I want to show my clients that I can always keep surprising them with new and innovative ways of designing. I want to showcase my ability to create designs that are not only complex and interesting to look at, but also keep a clean cohesive look throughout.

     

  • - HOBBIES

    I have cornucopia of hobbies and interests, that range of normal stuff like cooking to more extreme stuff like white water rafting. More recently, well in the past year, I have really been getting into surfing. I just purchased my third surfboard and go out as much as possible, well when the waves are cooperating.

     

    Some other random facts about me, I play quit a few different instruments. Talking piano lessons for 9 years when I was younger really drove my passion for music. Picking up the drums, bass, and guitar all around the same time in middle school was really a deciding factor that I was going to keep pursuing music. In high school I was in the drum line, and the concert symphonic band, which gave me the opportunity to do some international travel and go to England and whales for a bit in 2010.

     

    Art is also a huge part of my life, I mean I am a graphic designer by trade. But I also love more traditional art like painting and drawing, I love experimenting with new mediums and techniques.
