Damian Lamartine

Graphic Designer | Owner

I have been a graphic designer since 2006 with an emphasis in print design. Whether designing for print or web my goal is to: create work that communicates beauty of form and function while engaging an audience in meeting or exceeding the expectations of a given project. In all my projects, I love a hands on approach, involving myself in the project from all levels, to learn and engage from team members around me and share my ideas on how to drive the project forward with inspiration and team leadership when it is required.
