Why design

Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose”

–Charles Eames

Hi, my name is Alvaro Gómez. I am a 29-year-old graphic designer, with 6 years of experience in the field. I picked this field because, in a way, we decide what the world looks like – from something as big as a billboard advertisement, to the way icons will look on a phone. It doesn’t matter where you are from or what language you speak, through great design – the arrangement and use of elements, colors, and typefaces – you can get your message across.

There are so many areas in this field but my favorite is advertising. Let’s face it, we live in a society that will judge the book by its cover and is up to us to make that cover the most appealing and worth spending money on. As Will Rogers said, “Advertising is the art of convincing people to spend money they don’t have for something they don’t need”.

I hope you enjoy my website. Please feel free to contact me or leave your comments.

Have a great day.
