Hello. I'm Devan

I'm Devan Brush. I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina. I am going to be a senior at Appalachian State University, pursuing BFA Graphic Design. My passion for graphic design all started back in elementary school when I would scrapbook everything I could. Design has been a passion of mine ever since.

Design is about telling a visual story. Everybody has a story to tell whether it's a brand, an event, or a purpose. They all have to start somewhere. I love being able to figure out what that story is and designing it in a way that represents them, whether it's through branding, motion graphics, illustration or web design.
