My Vision

To promote good, meaningful design that has thought and creativity brewed into it. In a world full of branding, we need to remember what will separate us from our fellow neighbors. What does that brand thrive on doing best? Taking those ideas and building a story to share with others is the key ingredient. When people can envision your story and mission, it gives them a sense of becoming part of something they can get behind.

I believe design is a process

I prototype and iterate

I design and build

Define

What does the company or service offer and what does it do well at. Harness that first.

Design

Gather a visual essence of ingredients and design a persona that emanates that essence.

Refine

Refinement can be adding something but most of the time it’s the removal of something.

Build

With the backing the prior three, execution should be the easiest step.

Simply put: Austine Duggan is an employee that gets things done. His creative talent, versatility, and hardworking attitude accomplished many things at Bentley. During his tenure, he created beautiful print work, sleek images for the web, and awesome marketing material. In addition, what truly sets Austine apart from most designers is his willingness to research additional solutions and work with you until you are satisfied. I have personally recommended him to people I know that need design work. I am sure whatever project he is working on, the customer will be happy with the results

As an instructor at Mt. Sierra College, I have had the pleasure of teaching many students the art and business of digital media production. I highly recommend Austine Duggan on the basis that he is dedicated to his profession, passionate about his art, and most importantly, a good human being. Austine is very hard working, prompt, and carries a strong desire to put forth his best effort. Am lucky to have had Austine as a student and as a friend.

Austine is my go-to when I need assistance for anything from digital illustration and 3D modeling. His abundance of knowledge about the latest design applications make him a valuable source to me. Till this day, I still consider him one of my most trust worthy friends and colleague. His patients and insight make him a wonderful person to work with.
