Hi! I’m Zyon Lahd.
Moving to Wisconsin to work as a graphic designer for a real estate company was a big undertaking. I wasn’t sure what to expect, having never worked in the industry before, but I was excited about the opportunity! I had several years of experience in graphic design thanks to my time working with small businesses in the retail industry back home. Although it was different than what I had been used to, I was willing and eager to learn all that this new role had to offer. I found myself quickly adapting to the job’s tasks and responsibilities, eventually becoming an integral part of the team.
As a child, I was drawn to the creative arts like sketching and watercolors. From the mere age of 6-years-old, I took great pleasure in expressing myself through these mediums. But when my father got me my first computer back in the 90s, it opened a whole new world of possibilities for me. I took it upon myself to save up money so that I could purchase Quarkexpress – which was top-of-the-range graphic design software at the time. To have such an accessible tool in my own home just felt magical! PCs weren’t common household items then, so there were very few people who understood how to use software like Quarkexpress. It fueled a passion for designing deep within me that lasts even today.
Photoshop and InDesign have truly revolutionized the way I view design. With unlimited options at my fingertips, I can easily convert my ideas into real-life creations. Whether I’m making a logo, a flyer, or even a website, these tools allow me to see what my finished project will look like before I even make it happen. Their power is unparalleled in the realm of design and they are essential to any creative on the cutting edge of visual expression. As far as I’m concerned, no design software comes close to the capabilities provided by Photoshop and Indesign!
My 15 years of experience in the creative industry, coupled with my Bachelor of Visual Communication from The University of Boston and Brand Master Certification from Brand Master Academy, has allowed me to establish a great design portfolio. I have been able to successfully execute branding projects such as flash animation, website design, and photography for various large businesses in the US. Through continuous self-improvement and hard work, I have earned an impressive reputation within the design industry as someone who approaches each challenge with creativity, sound strategies, and uncompromising professionalism.
