I’m Cameron. キャメロン。aka Smiley. aka Wavy Noodz...or just Cam. 🌞 🌱
Creating brands with character through design, illustration, and motion.
Currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
ABOUT MEI’m an artist by nature and designer by profession. Both have given me an appreciation for the smaller things; the details that often go unnoticed.
After graduating from Ohio State University, I began working as a visual designer in the tech industry—mostly designing interfaces for software, websites, and mobile apps. Now, I’m looking to step away from the interface/tech scene and help people build their brands.
I’m interested in creating identities that have character and building brands that people can see and feel; to experience in person, not through a screen. When people feel your presence, see your face, and hear your voice, you establish a more personal connection to your audience.
I’m continuously finding places where my skills overlap with my interests, and learning how to work them into my craft or that thing that I “do”.
What excites me most is getting my hands dirty and making cool shit.
WHAT I DO FOR MONEYGraphic design, motion design, illustration, and maybe UI (it depends).
WHAT INTERESTS MEBranding, stickers, animation, packaging, landscape architecture, biomimicry, ecology, adult swim bumpers, space (not the colonization parts), and nature.
WHAT I DO FOR FUNMake breakfast, try different foods, listen to all kinds of music, make music, watch anime, learn Japanese, go skateboarding, bike around NYC, plant trees, play video games, doodle, and read.
...I also take care of 4 bonsai (and counting).
WHAT I WON’T DONo more dashboards, if you need a dashboard, you’ve likely failed to make a usable product. No military/war stuff. No oil or mining shit. No religious stuff. No racist stuff. No corporate bullshit. Absolutely no unethical work.
I’ll let you know if there’s anything else. ︎
