This guy, am I right?
Why yes, that is a 1500′s Baroque self-portrait, what of it? I’m sorry, I should introduce myself: my name is Jack Bloom and I’m a sarcastic but super awesome designer. My days involve LEGO building, cooking, illustration, and experimenting with typography. I’m a pretty relaxed guy, a quality I feel strengthens my design as well as my personable attitude.
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, involved in Photoshop lead me to the world of visual communication and its bountiful wonders. Currently, I’m focused on: branding, interactive design, and illustration. Typography is my true passion.
There’s more, 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.
