Hey, I'm Bradd and I'm a Graphic, Web and User Interface Designer living in Windsor, Ontario. I'm largely self-taught, but I attended St. Clair College for a three year Graphic Design and Advertising program. There, I learned about illustration, layout, Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML/CSS, InDesign, QuarkXpress, typography, advertising, and colour theory. Drawing and creating new things has always been part of my life. From a young age I was obsessed with creating cartoon characters. As I grew older my attention shifted to comic books and super heroes. In my teenage years I became a connoisseur of fine records and t-shirt art and the bands associated with them.
I graduated in 2006 and began working at Douglas Marketing Group where I gained experience in web and print design. I left after about a year to start my own small business. After a year of working for myself I started getting lonely, so I decided to take a full time job at Wired Solutions. It's there that I further honed my web and user interface design skills. In 2010 I moved from Windsor, Ontario to Winnipeg, Manitoba to support my partner in furthering her education in fine arts. Soon after that I did a short stint at ClarkHuot, it's there that I learned a lot about creative branding and logo design in exchange for my expertise in responsive web design. From there my career took a bit of a different direction when I became the in house graphic designer, social media manager and general operations manager at Woodcock Cycle Works.
My specialties include but are not limited to:
I recently returned home to Windsor, Ontario where I continue to expand my knowledge inside and outside of the design world. The bulk of my work in recent years has been web based and I am actively learning more about responsive and mobile design as this new medium continues to evolve. I also work at City Cyclery as a sales person, technician, and I run the shop's website, marketing and social media. In my free time, I enjoy playing the guitar, bass & drums, collecting and listening to vinyl records. I'm also a professional beard consultant and bicycle fanatic, so if you need advice on beard grooming or have a question about bikes, I'm your guy.
