My name is Stephen Looney and I am the creator of Graphic Designer Tips .com. The reason I started this site was to educate all people about Graphic Design and how it can benefit them if they choose to educate themselves.
I first got introduced to Graphic Design back in high school when they started teaching those types of classes and I instantly got hooked. For the first time I was really able to apply my imagination in a class. As time went on I went to college to learn about this field and viewed art in a totally different way afterwards. My first job right out of college was as a Junior Graphic Designer for an Advertising Agency in Long Island, NY, where I received the most unbelievable on the job training.
For the past few years I have represented myself in my own company SML Studios, networking and gaining trusting clients. A big reason why I have started this website was to take what I learned at College, what I learned on the job, and what I’ve learned in business and educate other Graphic Artists and give them some direction.
I highly suggest that every aspiring artist take classes on this subject alongside with what you will learn on this site. Anything I speak about is either things that I have learned & experienced. Any other source of information I post other than myself will have the proper citings.
You can personally contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope my teaching enhances your career.
