It isn't the pen; it's how you write your name
Branding is how you want people to remember you by.
I've been designing for over 20 years. When I was 15, I helped out at a local print and copy store, making designs for signs and banners. It allowed me to be mindful of my environment. During the car rides, I would look at the detail of every billboard and sign that passed by with appreciation. I was a lousy graffiti artist, but I was still doodling typography when I could not pay attention to a class lesson. Early on in my creative career, I was a record producer, pushing me to make album art, Myspace pages, and flyers. At that time, I believed I fell in love with the idea of branding without even knowing what it was.
