College of the Canyons, 2008, Multi-media design
Bryant W is a Graphic artist, Illustrator, Designer, and Painter from California.
Attracted to the other worldly, spiritual, dark, natural side of life ever since he was a young child, it’s his love for the macabre that helps to explain Bryant’s highly charged expressive and emotional hand rendered work. “My love for illustration started when I was a young boy. My family and I would go camping in Yosemite, and while there I remember riding my bike down to the little general store to buy comic books. I would spend the whole trip obsessing over the look and feel of those old printed pages while having adventures of my own in the forest.”
Having studied Graphic Arts at College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, CA where he received an AA in Multimedia Design, Bryant then transferred to California State University Northridge, where he currently has a print of one of his paintings on permanent display at the campus. Always hungry for knowledge, inspiration and professional growth, Bryant ventured to San Diego State University where he received a BA in Graphic design.
Although Bryant’s passion lies in expressing himself through his paintings and hand rendered work, he possesses the unique ability to create pieces which easily connect with a broad audience. He has collaborated with Flat Fitty, as a featured artist, to create a custom hat for their ‘Artist Series’, as well as working in the action sports industry with companies such as C1rca Shoes and Bad Boy Brands.
The design of a product is key for people to want to use it after they buy it. Yet it’s the job of the packaging to make the person want to purchase a product to begin with. I specialize in creating unique thought provoking package design in which the final product’s packaging comes to have a sense of worth just as the item being sold. I specialize in all kinds of Packaging needs from album design, make up packaging, and everything else in between. I will work closely in relation with you and your end goals to create the look and feel that you desire.
Developing expressive creative designs while working closely with you on developing detailed concepts and illustrations on all types of products. I have experience with working with both large and small apparel companies on creating and art directing a number of products. With my background I am able to help you achieve your end goals and produce exciting well executed products for the market place.
My illustrative technique has a traditional hand drawn fluid aesthetic to it that in my mind achieves an existence of universal and timeless criteria of artistic value. Each Illustrative design is created to express emotional iconic traits found in not only design but also life. My inspiration pulls deep down from the depths of macabre and is hand rendered across paper only to be adjusted and placed together within the computer.
