Hello, and welcome!
My name is Billy Weaver, a lover and student of
all things aesthetically pleasing.
As you may have read already, I come from a large family of pretty awesome people. My father is what we call the “Master-Builder” of the family, and my mother can be referred to as a “Sewing-Machine.” (Puns puns puns.) I can credit my love for design to them both, however, my story took a little bit of a curve when I was hired as a “graphic designer” at the age of sixteen. (I use quotations because I had absolutely NO experience in design, whatsoever!) But, with some guidance and a gentle push, I was able to teach myself programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator, which I now use on a regular basis for school/projects.
As I pursue a career in graphic design, I’ve found myself fortunate enough to experience places/things I never imagined I would get the opportunity to do, while meeting some incredible individuals who have taught me so much along the way. This brings me to our blog! My hope for this blog is to be able share with you some of the valuable lessons I’ve learned (and will be learning) through my journey.
Enough about me though. Feel free to look around the new place! (I suggest clicking through the “Throw Together” section in our blog…Doris posted some KILLER DIY projects there that are just as brilliant as she is.)
