Star stricken and feeling greatful

I just wanted to give everyone who has liked my page or visited my website a huge thank you and a high five, I’m almost at 100 likes already. I can’t believe the support that you all have given me. It’s such a great feeling to have people get behind you when your starting something new, it really makes me feel like my dream of being a designer is coming true. So thank you again.

Today I wanted to share with you a little star stricken experience I had last week with a really well known graphic designer and illustrator Greg Straight. 

Greg has a really successful career and has done work for many well known companies such as Whitcoulls, Chelsea Sugar Works, Huffer, Remix Magazine and many more. He has even illustrated a children’s book called “While You Were Sleeping”.

Greg came into Yoobee to give us a brief look into his day to day life, his career, and how he has developed into the designer and illustrator he is today. He also brought some of his amazing art work in. I have to say he was really inspiring and a really nice, down to earth guy. He even let me take photos of his art work and I also sheepishly asked him if I could get a photo taken with him, to which of course he said yes.

I won’t ramble on too much but it was pretty amazing.  Thanks for reading and thank you for all your support.

Imagine, Believe, Achieve.
