About me

Joseph Zambri

GRAPHIC DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATOR

Based out of Toronto, it is my ambition to create as many quality works as possible, while continuing to grow as a designer and improving my skillset along the way.

 

I began my journey as a Graphic Designer in 2010. Throughout this journey I found inspiration in a variety of places: album art, film, the punk rock scene, pop-art, graffiti around the city and the and German, expressionist paintings.

 

Having worked in a variety of industries such as Music, Gaming, Entertainment, Publishing and Medical Aesthetics, I have had exposure to endless creative styles, concepts and visions. This taught me a great deal in regards to attempting and embracing diverse design techniques.

My own style began to emerge with a noticeable emphasis on mixed mediums and abstract design. High contrast and vibrant colours made each individual piece unique and noteworthy. I have been able to refine and perfect my own craft with modern design aesthetics & sensibilities.
