Hi, I’m Celeste.
and Street Photographer.
AND THAT ONE TIME IN BANDCAMP…
As a young designer and print production artist, I idolized my art directors at GreyLA and shed many tears when they berated me on my kerning. I eventually learned. I once cut my fingers with an x-acto blade while cutting and mounting an important comp. I bled all over the print and made it worse when I oversprayed the Super77, but we won the account.
A BIT LATER…
I art-directed for lifestlye, on-figure, and tabletop product shoots, designed ads, marketing collateral, and multi-page print catalogs for retailers that were once delivered to many mailboxes across the USA.
I created designs for flash sites (!) until folks caught up with the security bugs, hard to read text, plus a long list of other issues. It was fun experimenting in the wild west web for a while.
While working as a web designer for the NFL, I got to be on the field and tasked to shoot the game with the super-buttery 😎️ Nikon 600mm Ultra Zoom for Super Bowl XLVII. The San Francisco 49ers lost their first Super Bowl in franchise history that night, defeated 34-31 by the Baltimore Ravens.
TL;DRI like design in all forms, my eyes are often peeled for emerging trends, and I am always—always learning. Staying curious, innnovative in my craft, and having full command of my tools is a priority. Through mentors and amazing people I have had the opportunity to work with, I learned a lot about teamwork and design excellence. I aim to pay it forward and provide others opportunities to grow, and in some way help fuel their interest in design.
I’m also a nice person.
