Gerian Williams + Artist + Sign Person
As a creative person, I've always had a keen perception and opinion of my visual surroundings. I had the good fortune to go to art school and major in my passion, painting, when to pursue a more practical graphic design course entailed creating everything by hand with tools such as "ruling pens". I did not have the dexterity or patience it required. There were no computers or concepts like "user friendly"!
But I did step up the plate (or mouse) when computers advanced enough to take over the world of commercial art...which was where a living could be made. Plus, I love typography and working hands on.
And so it wasn't too much of a stretch to enter the employment world of the sign industry, where I gained decades of experience designing & producing signs, logos, & graphics for various applications.
