Bagoo

“Embodying the best qualities of the early music movement and combines elegant musical artistry with a youthful flair and brilliance…” Designed for Afro-Caribbean band Bagoo, the logo smartly mixes the instruments of the band  (guitar, drums) into a type styled logo into the mantra of the band.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

‘TECHNOLOGY THE MEDIUM CREATIVITY THE SOURCE” I am first CREATIVE, my medium of choice is TECHNOLOGY. As a young artist one of my most important lessons was that design must FUNCTION. Purpose must supersede aesthetics; it is the foundation of good DESIGN.

I am a freelance GRAPHIC-WEB DESIGNER / DEVELOPER and CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHER with a PASSION for technology. My creative involvement with technology became an obsession, when an intense passion to find an effective medium to showcase my work, met the Internet, at that time a serious emerging media of personal expression. Since then I have worked in all aspects of technology, my soul purpose CREATIVE EXPRESSION!
