Greetings! My name is C.J. Gunderson and it’s my pleasure to announce that I am joining the Stellar Blue crew’s creative team as a graphic web designer.
Art has been a constant cornerstone throughout my life, dating back to when I was just a little kid doodling comics during recess. This creative drive carried over into my high school career, where my primary field of study was in the fine arts. Through building a strong portfolio, I was able to get into the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. It was here that I made the leap from the fine arts to digital design. Four years of studying, observing, trial, error, and of course learning, culminated in me obtaining my BFA in Communication Design this last spring.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” a phrase once said by Leonardo da Vinci, are words that I live by when it comes to approaching a new design. I believe that successful design can be accomplished through considering how creative content can say more with less. In my studies, I focused heavily on the power of branding. Although I mainly practiced print design, I’m beyond excited to further explore the realm of web design and expand my skillset as a working creative.
I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends, both playing and watching sports, reading, and staying up on fashion.
