“My technique of unifying illustration with digital art allows virtually no limits for interpreting what my imagination is inspired to create, enabling me to design with unlimited creativity and visual imagination. I possess a ubiquitous online presence that assures I am a legitimate freelancer.””
"My name is Anthony M. Grimaldi of JourneyManDesigns: Illustrator & Graphic Designer from New York City. Beginning in 2011 I started up JourneyManDesigns, my creative freelance business by which I earn a living creating, illustrating, and designing according to the exact preferences and specifications for a variety of deadline-driven clients including individual, small, and medium-sized businesses. This includes utilizing Adobe CS to create and design logos, icons, advertisements, posters, banners, flyers, and t-shirts. As an illustrator, the primary mediums I create with are pencil, colored pencil, colored marker, charcoal, pastel, and pen & ink to create and design custom illustrations for publishers, authors, and small to medium-sized businesses. My talent is flexible to adopt different styles, and I am exceptionally adept at color and black and white. My children's book illustrations are colorful, bold, creative, dynamic, exciting and can be utilized to great effect to capture and ignite the attention and imagination of young readers.
My technique of blending illustration with digital graphics allows me to design with unlimited creativity and visual imagination, offering greater flexibility, variety, and choices, which I assure will produce maximum artistic achievement and impact for every illustration and design. I always work with and use Harvest for price estimates, Adobe Sign for contracts, and PayPal for online invoices, all of which I provide to every client. I am technologically equipped to submit completed assignments through email, Dropbox, Hightail, OneDrive, and WeTransfer, easily allowing me to work remotely for any client anywhere in the world."
Anthony M. Grimaldi attended the Web Design & Interactive Media of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online and holds MS Office Specialist Certification / MS Excel Specialist Certification from The Institute for New Age Training and AS - Visual Communications & Graphic Design/Illustration by Katherine Gibbs.
