My name is Lawrence; I am a designer and digital artist hoping to add a grain of visual properness to the world. In my opinion a great designer is a public servant who is also a facilitator of success. With that said great design should strive to somehow improve life; whether that is though legibility, comfort, easiness, user friendliness or beauty. In my opinion things are better when they are visually organized, which is why I love the grid! Although I don’t use the grid in most of my work I keep a mental, loosy goosy, grid in my head when I work and generally look at things. Which for the most part is the reason why my work looks gridded an organized, but almost every time has a certain loosy, relaxed quality. As a designer all of the work I produce is never for or about myself, which is why my ArtWork is hardly ever about me; instead I chose to talk about topics that could inform us, empower us, or I think are funny. Classic and contemporary hip-hop culture, Afro Cuban and Yoruba Culture, minimalism, conceptualism, and casual humor are some of the things that influence my work and way of thinking. If I had to describe my work I would compare it to Hip hop music, I often take two or more elements and mash them together to make a brand new item. This is whether I made all of these elements or I’m just making a remix in order to change the dialog of the individual elements that make the piece.
