Selected Works of Joel Colombo
I am a Multimedia Designer and Art Director from Santa Fe, Argentina.
I specialize in Visual Compositing, Brand Development and Motion Graphics.
At last, Hello World!
As you can see, this is not the typical Hello World!… this is the “At last!” Why “At last“? because, as the saying tells “en casa de herrero, cuchillo de palo (spanish)” this is also applicable to the design world.
It took nearly 4 years so I can finally have a fully updated portfolio (yes, 4 years). Between a lot of work, short time, and some inattention… I never could finish all those sketches, designs and versions that I’ve started and left half ways.
I think there’s a lot of people who must feel the same.
They are right those who say that there’s no more difficult thing that designing for yourself, wether it’s a logotype, a website, or just a short sentence describing our profile (of course I wasn’t the exception either!). Figuring this out, I set a few guidelines and objectives for 2011… I’d try to define my personal brand, my portfolio, my work style, my hobbies, almost everything… and order them in such way that I could simplify certain aspects of my life (another great challenge for designers and entrepreneurs in general).
So… after many comes and goes, and above all… time, I could finish my new site and blog!
What are you going to find in this blog? Basically, it’s and excuse to talk about different topics of interests related to graphic design and new technologies, but most of all, it’s an excuse to invite colleagues, friends (and everyone who are interested) to write and participate, providing richer insights and opinions.
Without further do, I salute you and thank you!
