Farah Hakimpour

Hi, my name is Farah Hakimpour and I love to design and draw! I hope you enjoy my portfolio! My favourite things to do in design is brand identity, poster design, and package design. When it comes to illustration, I love drawing people and characters in my own art style. I like drawing my favourite YouTube personalities and also original characters and characters from many works of fiction. I don't think I could choose a favourite when it comes between design and illustration. I love to create logos for new companies or recreate logos for old companies, but I also love to draw people and characters that bring me joy. I believe designing requires more critical thinking than when I draw. Drawing just feels so smooth and natural to me since I started my creative journey with drawing and sketching. I tried a bunch of different forms of art but drawing was the one that stuck with me the most. In fact, being in this creative mind was what got me thinking about being in graphic design. I learned about graphic design in high school and was set on it from then until I had to choose a college. Coming to college and learning about the many different aspects of graphic design got me thinking more about what I wanted to do. Eventually, in my second year, I decided that working on brand identity, poster design, and package design was where I wanted my most attention to go. I can't wait to find a great internship and a great job in the field!

Jason Wootten

Welcome to my portfolio! I am a junior Graphic Designer currently enrolled in my final semester of the Graphic Design diploma program at Humber College. Some of my interests include biking and being outdoors, food, music, technology and of course, design! Growing up, I always loved design and had an appreciation for the way things are styled to look a certain way or to serve a specific function. For example, ever since I was little I have always loved cars and have been fascinated by the iterative, year-over-year aesthetic and technological changes that auto manufacturers make in order to stay on-trend. I also loved to draw many of my favourite cars and even design some of my own, inspired by cars that already exist.As a graphic designer, I am often confused with being an artist, which is a completely different practice. An artist creates a piece based purely off raw emotion and thought, with no particular end-goal or function in mind. A graphic designer, on the other hand, starts with a very good idea of how the end product should look, what specific purpose it will serve, and how to make it the simplest, easiest and least noticeable to use or experience. After all, good design goes unnoticed and doesn’t take effort to understand or appreciate.

Jimin Lee

Following a brief love affair with the idea of a legal profession, Jimin Lee has since re-oriented her keen interest in the world and her innate problem-solving abilities to develop bespoke user-oriented design solutions that address real-world problems. A desire to dissect and analyze social intricacies and human psychosocial behavior lead to her obtaining a baccalaureate of Sociology that served as the foundation upon which her design process has thrived. With an invested interest in betterment, Jimin applies this philosophy to her design, focusing on salvaging existing strengths in order to refine and create something improved.Throughout her studies as a graphic design student at Humber College, Jimin has found herself enamoured by the efficiency of user-experience and user-interface design and its potential in forging beautiful novel experiences. This fascination has lead to her focus in front-end web development, translating theoretical concepts to tangible visual ones to facilitate ease of use and navigation across a spectrum of online platforms. Rounding out her skillset are years of experience working in front-facing service positions; years that have imparted the knowledge of navigating difficult client situations. Such skill is particularly useful in convincing clients and guiding conversations in order to arrive at a satisfactory solution for all involved parties.When Jimin is not wrestling with a line of particularly stubborn code or fussing over the opacity slider by nudging it endlessly in 1% increments; she may be spotted conquering virtual kingdoms, indulging in a psychological thriller flick, or catching stray thoughts through writing.

Hello, I am Justin Biscocho and I am a graphic designer that is currently in the final year of Graphic Design at Humber College. I first got into Graphic Design when I was looking for new areas to explore in my hobbies back in 2013. The first pieces of design I stumbled upon were digital design, such as banners, ads, and logos.That's where I started to watch tutorials, learning the basics of the software used. I would upload my first creations online and share them with others. I dabbled in many different things, and banners, logos, and motion were the big three that I designed for fun. As I designed them for fun, they were all apart of my hobbies in one way or another, and I would commonly gather inspiration from other people that were also apart of my hobbies.As a kid that always wanted to create art, I was intrigued by graphic design, where leading into high school I took the graphic design class every year. Now I am in the final year of the graphic design program at Humber. Throughout the semesters, I learn many different things about graphic design. The different areas of different design, motion, web, print, and much more. All these areas captured my attention one way or another.Ever since I stumbled upon design, I always wondered if I could design things that can also capture people's attention, which is what lead me to where I am now. Stepping into the graphic design industry is a new world, and I am always open to learning new skills.

It all started when I was a little boy, I enjoyed creating; whether it was a birthday card or get-well-soon drawing, I always wanted to create rather than buy since it gave it that sentimental value a store bought card could never. My first digital art experience was paint on Windows 98, which was equivalent to using Photoshop since it was a new experience for me. I lost my passion for design during my teen years due to the transitions and changes in my life, but my high school Comm. Tech teacher Mr. Woods sparked the designer in me again. No other course in high school mattered to me like Mr. Woods' class did, that is when I realized that my passion and strength was right there in front of me the whole time. Although I have tapped into the many different areas of Graphic Design at Humber, my main focus and joy is in Editorial Design, Marketing Strategies and Digital Design. I'm curious to see where this path takes me in the future, it's been a long story and I will be busy writing the rest!

Matthew Indovino

Hello, my name is Matthew! I am an outgoing introvert, who has a passion for crazy outlandish things and finding the beauty in everything around us. Ever since I was younger, I have always been passionate about design and the art that I am exposed to everyday. I would collect magazines and albums, which is what mostly sparked my interest in design. My interest in pop culture was created with my exposure to constant music playing in my house, sitting in front of the stereo and reading the album booklets. As I idolize a lot of musicians, I would love to some day be able to produce the vision that is attached to the visual, whether that be on the front cover of an album or a magazine; these memories and interests have brought me to today. I am currently almost done my Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design, at Humber college, all while also completing my internship, where I will be rebranding a salon. When working, I want to create impactful art that will fulfill my vision, all while fulfilling my audiences vision; I want my career to not feel like a job, but more like a lifestyle; it is incredibly fundamental that I enjoy what I do on a daily basis. It has always been my dream to positively impact the world with colourful and vibrant work and I cannot wait to continue doing that with my skills. In the future I would like to work on a personal level with people to bring my ideas to the table, all while bringing theirs to life as well; I hope this lands me somewhere in the music industry where I can work with other creative individuals.

Sian Choi

Hi I'm Sian. I'm a designer, creative and a cat-lover allergic to cats. When I design, I find myself constantly developing to understand the wider world around me, and that's my powerful motivation as a designer. I studied philosophy before I became a designer, and I always had an eager to capture and solve the problem rather than asking one. Now as a designer, I have been privileged to create something that makes people’s life easier and richer.My biggest favourites in design are editorial design and data visualization. I'm in love with those two areas of design because of the beauty of working with raw contents/datasets and turning them into something meaningful. As a bonus, I'm versatile in branding and UX/UI as well. In fact, since 2018, I’ve been working as a freelance designer mainly doing branding work for various clients including an eye clinic, local churches, civil engineering company, mortgage company and more. From these experiences, I’ve learned how communicate with clients while creating logo, business stationery, poster, infographic and other promotional materials.My career goal at this moment is to gain more editorial experiences by working with professional and experienced editorial designers at an editorial studio. I’m very enthusiastic to learn how publications are made from the very beginning to the end. It would help me develop my editorial skill, and more importantly, it would help me learn the soft skills I need as an editorial designer. I’m ready to discover and understand how editorial designers work with each other and work with other creatives.
