Graphic Design + Illustration

As a classically trained fine artist with a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design, VaporDave is fluent in both print and digital design and illustration, with expert level status in Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Below is a full branding campaign for Jamaica Joel's, an Oregon cannabis dispensary. Project included logo design and interior mural, as well as print advertising and an upcoming website re-design. Having both Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong pose in front of my work here was an incredible honor.

        Social Media Videos

        I love the new social media video app from Adobe called Adobe Rush. It's like Premiere but way pared down and specifically designed for social media viewport sizes, plus it lets you place PSD files and/or Illustrator files that automatically update if the original is changed, how sweet is that!
