BACKGROUND
(WHO I AM)

My name is Jeffrey Zepeda, a graphic designer who as a kid always wanted to do something where I can be creative and artistic. I was and still am facisnated with drawings, paintings, and art in general. During my high school years, I was introduced to the adobe products by my older brother who also studies graphic arts. From that moment on I've became obsessed with design blogs and anything that will inspire me to become a better artist. Soon after graduating high school, immediatley enrolled in the Art Institute of Dallas and earned my Bachelors degree in Graphic Arts. Upon graduation I was nominated and won Best Portfolio for the class of 2010. Through my studies and personal endeavors I have gained a wealth of knowledge which has helped me to develop as a designer. Over the past year I have become an informed designer - one who is driven by culture and research.
