I’m now working as the Lead Designer of a revolutionary firm, I love it so much that this site will no longer updated, for a glimpse into the world of W&P Design, take a look at our page for more up-to-date info.
Hello! My name is Justin and I’m a do-all designer from New York City.
I love the hard-working satisfaction of personal and professional growth; I insist to never stop expanding my skills and talents. My prevalence and dedication provides a strong sense of trust and security that has quickly become a rare commodity. I am exceptional at anything I apply myself to. When it comes to work, I am relentless; I am not satisfied until the job has exceeded standards and expectations. No matter the task or workload, the moment I’m involved, it’s guaranteed to surpass the finest quality. I could simply continue to tell you how passionate and enthusiastic I truly am, but I would much rather show you.
You call them skills, I call them passions!
Graphic and Design
One of the most useful and powerful programs for vector based work, and an absolute favorite of mine to design with. It can be used to create logos, info-graphics, presentation boards, diagrams, and of course, illustrations!
Arguably, if it wasn’t made in InDesign, it’s probably not a professional grade publication! This software most commonly aids in the creation of books, but it can also be used to make multi-page presentations, or even the basis for an iPhone app!
This mainstreamed necessity is your only option for photo manipulations, corrections, and adjustments. Beyond the basics, you know its what the pros use for those flashy tabloid covers. Replace the swimsuit model for an architectural masterpiece, and I could do the same.
Coding and Web Development
This is the skeleton foundation of web design. The backbone structure of HTML is its own language and the most well known of code types, it dates from way back when!
Once you have HTML down, you can style those foundations you built with some delicious CSS! You can add a pop here, a dash there, maybe even a shadow over yonder. Aside from colors and fonts, CSS manipulates all the aesthetics, it can help rearrange items on the page, and almost most importantly, the spaces between them!
Architectural and Rendering
With this practical application, you can get some pretty sweet 3D renderings ready for display in no time! Whether it’s floor plans, a site rendering, or a whole interactive fly-through of a city, digital rendering has endless benefits and communicates your ideas quickly and professionally!
The industry standard for architects across the globe. With this intensely powerful, accurate, and technical program, you can get precise architectural plans that are an unparalleled accompaniment to professional presentations.
This complex software takes loads of data, tables, and attributes, and helps you create incredibly accurate maps. With the added bonus of layering and special geo-spatial functions, conducting site research would be impossible without this necessity in your toolbox!
Parsons The New School for Design
BS Urban Design
In the progressive Urban Design degree at Parsons, I not only expanded my foundational skill sets, but dove into a new realm of an urban style of thinking. I learned to perceive, understand, and propose design interventions in real world examples. Utilizing Parson’s extensive partnerships, I was able to partner and work with institutions such as NYC’s DOT, DCP, and collaborative works with non-profit organizations and local design firms.
As an added area of interest, I received permission to take core classes with Communication Design majors. The special relationship I held between these two departments allowed me to create a hybrid major of my own: Designing Communications within the Context of the Urban Environment. Learning these additional principles of design not only increases the aesthetics of presenting information, but allows me to communicate complex ideas and theories, or in some cases the most ingenious, the invisible.
Orange Coast College
Associate of the Arts
Wide ranged course of study specializing in Architectural Concepts, Artistic Skill Sets, and the Photography of Architecture in preparation for a transfer to the four year Bachelor of Science degree in Urban Design at Parson the New School for Design in New York City.
At Orange Coast College, I gathered the necessary skill sets to provide a solid foundation for a wide range of professions and fields of study. Throughout my time at the university, I learned the basics of architecture, digital modeling, physical drafting, principles of 2 dimensional design, color theory, advanced statistics, physical geography, and the psychological effects of how each of these affects an individual or group. All of these skill sets have allowed me to be extraordinarily well rounded, knowledgable, and quite a resourceful thinker.
