My name is Cameron Ward, and I am a graphic designer currently living in North Carolina. I am 32 years old and I have experience working in both digital and print media. It has been a long but enriching road that led me to my current place in life.
I most recently earned an Associate's Degree in Advertising and Graphic Design from Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh, NC. Before that I graduated from UNC Greensboro in 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in both Music and German Studies. While at UNCG, I studied keyboard instruments, primarily focusing on the piano. I also played the fortepiano and harpsichord for various chamber groups specializing in early music. My junior year of college, I also had the opportunity to spend the entire school year studying abroad in Klagenfurt, Austria, which fundamentally changed my outlook on life and my career pursuits. While there I met so many amazing people, had wonderful experiences, and visited several of the great museums and cities in Western Europe.
After graduation, I moved to Savannah, Georgia, unsure of my future. While there, I rediscovered my love for visual art. My grandmother is a professional portrait painter and I grew up near a studio, in an art gallery, or rummaging through one of a plethora of her art books. I soon began working as a fine art framer while I studied traditional drawing, painting, and pastel work with several local artists. The combination of these experiences instilled in me a love of paper and producing tangible objects, which shapes how I approach my graphic design and illustration work to this day.
In my free time, I enjoy anything creative. I love reading, hiking, playing piano, cooking, film photography, and watching movies. I have several cameras: an analog Canon AE-1, a Fujifilm Instax instant camera, and my most recent addition, a Canon 6D Mark II. I watch a lot of movies across multiple genres and from any time period. In particular, I enjoy 'Strangers on a Train,' 'Amadeus,' 'Silence of the Lambs,' 'Some Like it Hot,' and 'Tous les Matins du Monde.'
