A Shirt Design by Oso Meza

Why did you become a designer?

My career options narrowed down through my college years, in a good way. I went into college with a great interest in illustrating and t-shirt graphics, but learned that it wasn’t challenging enough for me. I can’t really pin-point when I found myself gaining interests in website, app, brand, logo designs; it just happened as I progressed through college.

What are the programs that you work with on a daily basis?

My go-to program is definitely Adobe Illustrator. I seek inspiration for design/illustration work from Pinterest, Dribbble, and Instagram.

In your opinion, what qualities and skills should a good graphic designer have?

A good graphic designer has to be a problem solver, great communicator, and have time-management skills. They should also be eager to learn, open to criticism, and have an eye for design.

Describe your creative process. What are the major steps?

  • Obtain all the details I can about the project. (Print/Web? Size? Deadline? Content? etc.)
  • Research inspiration.
  • Sketch out a variety of compositions.
  • Digitally draft top options.
  • Review with creative team.
  • Move forward with team’s direction

What brands do you most admire and how do they influence your work?

The NBA’s and Nike graphic advertisements are always so cool. I’m a fan of basketball, and graphics that are bold, aggressive, clean, and motivating.
