SHINEAD D'SOUZA - GRAPHIC DESIGN & ART DIRECTION

I landed my first design job when I was in grade 2 when a few kids in class noticed the name-tag taped to the corner of my desk. The flawless hand-drawn bubble letters combined with my ability to colour inside the lines and add drop shadows to each unique letter form was enough to convince them that I was the designer they needed to develop each of their personal brands.

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 love painting but when I paint, 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.

In 2009, I graduated from Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Graphic Design for Marketing program and received my bachelors degree in applied design. For the last 6 years I've been contracting as a freelance graphic designer, working with local agencies and clients including Cossette, Noise, kensie, CourageousB, Halfmoon Yoga and Joel Berman Glass Studio. I am currently designing and art directing at Dead Famous, a boutique creative agency in Vancouver's historic, Gastown.
