About

Hi. I’m Rex.
Design and illustration maker based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

What I Do

I create designs and illustrations for all sorts of projects: websites, brands, games, apps, shirts, posters, and more. I love being creatively challenged and constantly learning new things. (I even taught myself some html and css, just so I could make this here site!) When not working I love nerding out over superhero movies, spending time with my wife, and being out in the woods.

Background

I’m an art director at Full Circle working with the rest of the team on various marketing and design projects. Before that I worked at Fusionary for a bunch of years. I studied design and illustration at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA, and at Kendall College of Art and Design┬áin Grand Rapids, MI. I also taught some illustration and web portfolio classes at KCAD for a few years.

About the Site

This site runs on combination of WordPress and Bootstrap. The body font is Museo Sans Rounded and primary headers are in Signalist. Other fancy items include RoyalSlider for slideshows, Justified Image Grid for photo galleries, and IcoMoon for generating icon fonts.
