Our artistic interest escalated as we began to study the works of the masters and found ourselves interpreting and dissecting the connotation of artistic works. Our creations gained new direction and insight. Desiring to take our two-dimensional works and ideas to the computer screen, we "left the nest" and earned multiple degrees in the art and design sector.
During this time period we continued to travel and polish our artistic talents by taking on many freelance art projects such as logo and tattoo design, t-shirt printing, flyer/cover/one-sheet design, digital illustration, painting, and others; which ultimately led to the birth of our then freelance art/design business, SwayZe Ideations.
We are a highly motivated, goal-driven senior-level digital design team (now based out of Atlanta, GA) with over 12 years of experience in developing and executing a wide variety of successful print, multimedia, and e-marketing design projects. We have significantly increased the bottom line by presenting creative concepts that surpass clients' expectations and delivering on-target, cutting-edge design themes to meet client goals.
Our background includes designing and implementing on-message, effective creative projects, and services from concept through completion for a variety of high-profile clients. We have expertise in a broad range of design software applications and possess the ability to collaborate effectively with clients, peers, and senior management teams. We are confident that our talents and abilities will significantly benefit your organization or personal design needs. We are systematic, organized, hardworking, and dedicated team leaders with an analytical bent of mind. We have an innate sense of task prioritization, managerial aptitude, and result-oriented attitudes towards accelerating organizational and personal growth. Our unique approach is to help businesses, professionals, and entrepreneurs be more efficient and provide a better service to customers.
Like any artist, our many influences including our hometown of Philadelphia, it's urban, suburban and inner-city environments, at-risk youth, graffiti, Saturday morning cartoons, newspaper and Marvel comics, Hip-Hop music, education, several historical artists' works, the thrills and ills of society, etc. are embraced in our work. We take pride in the raw and biting messages of some of our ideations and creations, as these are times of needed honesty in America. We feel blessed, fortunate, and responsible in using our talents to be able to create a lane to speak for a community and culture that needs expression and does not have many avenues to do so.
Many people ask us about the derivation of our style. We can never answer with just a quick reply; we don't know that anyone understands all of life's influences on one's development emotionally or otherwise; what we know for sure is that our life experiences, interests, and the influences of great artists past and present, have led us to develop our unique style of presenting real-life (often "raw") subject matter through visually soft imagery. Our work is a compilation of all that is us!
Oh...and one last thing. We're huge fans of the color green.
