SHINEAD D'SOUZA - GRAPHIC DESIGN & ART DIRECTION

In grade 2 I got my first shot at design when some of my classmates commissioned me to create the name tags that are taped to the corner of your desk. They had noticed my keen sense for typography as well as my ability to colour within the lines. I went on to create 5 unique typefaces ranging from bubble to 3D for each of the name tags.

Graphic design is not so much what I do, it's who I am. It's fused into all aspects of my life. I get excited about things like hand-painted signage, newly designed labels on my favourite products, clever glue-free packaging and vintage tins. I paint sometimes but I don't paint sceneries, abstracts or portraits; I paint typefaces...fat-faces to be specific. I like things to be thoughtful, functional and well-designed.

I graduated with a degree in design from the Graphic Design for Marketing program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. For the last 5 years I've been contracting as a freelance graphic designer for shops all over Vancouver including Cossette, Noise, kensie, CourageousB, Halfmoon Yoga and Joel Berman Glass Studio. I am currently settled in Gastown at Dead Famous as senior designer.
