This guy, am I right?
Why yes, that is a 1500′s Baroque self-portrait, what of it? I’m sorry, I should probably introduce myself: my name is Jack Bloom and I’m a incredibly sarcastic but super awesome designer. My days involve LEGO building, cooking, illustration, and experimenting with typography. I’m relaxed by nature, a quality that I feel strengthens my design as well as my personable attitude. I was seasoned at Savannah College of Art and Design where I earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts with a major in graphic design. My career in design originated from a fundamental place, one that involved editing sprites from old 16-bit video games like Megaman &c. My geeky past, one which heavily involved Photoshop lead me to the world of visual communication and its bountiful wonders. Currently I’m a professional designer focusing on branding, interactive design, and illustration; however, typography based projects are my true passion. If your dream job involves developing a classic typeface based in the serif transitional period, then you’ve got a friend in me. There’s more to me, but I’d like to tell you these things over coffee, or maybe an appletini. That’s right, I enjoy a good tini, they make me feel fancy.
