Austin Soares

Web & Graphic Designer

Selected Work

With a careful eye for clean typography, minimalism, and pixel-perfection, I strive to produce work which could rival industry leaders.

My Background

From a very early age, I have always been interested in how things worked. I took apart countless toys, studied everything with inquisitive eyes, and had a great, creative imagination. At that point in my life, I was intrigued and challenged by the world around me. Today, I continue to be curious, and my field of interest provides me with the best playground to experiment.

I got involved in design shortly after getting into high school. I went to a technical high school where I found interest in the field of Computer Information Technology (CIT). I studied concepts throughout high school including Microsoft Office applications, public speaking, accounting, and basic web design.

It wasn't until my junior year that I realized I loved the web. I focused my attention on web and graphic design, and applied to Fitchburg State University for study in Communications with a concentration on Interactive Media and later, Graphic Design.

My work has been in constant evolution since I started at Fitchburg State University. I have learned to code by hand, and tedious as it may be, it made me the way I am today. Developing projects in this way builds someone's attention to detail. With this in mind, my work in computer-based graphic design follows this same principal.

Growing up, I noticed that an interest of mine was to teach people how to embrace their technology. Moving forward, I hope to quickly get involved in developing new ways for people to use technology including augmented reality and wearable technology. The future is bright, and I hope to be one of the people to shine the light.

Continued Experience

As I continue to learn and grow in my profession, I take everything into consideration. As a way of sharing what I learn, I have become interested in keeping my own personal blog.

Topics include my thoughts on new design influences and trends, human interaction concepts, typography and new fonts, and a log of current projects.

NEW
