MAKING SENSE OF GRAPHIC AND WEB DESIGN SINCE 2001
"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Some say Confuscius said that....he didn’t, but whoever said it was right, and I am proof!
Hi. My name is Gogi (pronounced Gogi - don't make it harder than it is ). Msndrstd Creative is my freelance graphic and website design business. I love my job. I started doing graphic design many years ago as a side job, but quickly figured out that I enjoyed it much more than pretty much any other job I had worked. So after a few years of designing part-time, and much to the dismay of my girlfriend (now wife and mother of my two kids), I decided to go all in. I took a chance and made design my full time job. It was risky - and probably dumb - but working significantly harder and longer hours for myself was far more rewarding to me than working fewer (but mindless) hours for someone else. That was in 2004 and I'm happy to say that I now eat Cup-O-Noodles because I WANT to.
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of working with all types of businesses and individuals, with an extremely diverse range of design styles. I've learned a lot and grown a lot, and I continue to do so. I take my work seriously, but myself - not so much. I know what a deadline, target audience, ROI and 1099 are, but I can also recite "Step Brothers," "Dumb & Dumber," "Coming to America," "Spaceballs" and "Spinal Tap" pretty much word for word. Anything else you may want to know about me or my work can be found below. If I’ve missed anything, feel free to contact me through the form at the bottom of this page. Happy scrolling, and thanks for taking the time to get to know me!
