My name is Bradley Afroilan and I’m a self taught graphic designer living in New York City who designs, animates, and shoots photos for a living. (Or at least trying too)

In short, this blog is to keep me accountable and for me to track my progress as I get better as a Graphic Designer. I’ll be posting everything that I do/learn on here for however long. While I already have 2 years of experience as a graphic designer, I still have imposter syndrome because I didn’t go to school for it. (I went to UC Berkeley for Sociology and thought I was going to be a Professor and here we are)

While good friends of mine still reassure me and tell me that I don’t need to prove myself to anyone, I still want to get better. The one thing that I lost after graduating 2 years ago was my love of knowledge. (But what can you expect after 17 years of formal education? Burnout is very likely nowadays).

I’ll be posting here as often as I can so that I can keep myself accountable and just to put my work out there. Follow me on instagram @avecserif.designer as I try to compound my skills as often as I can~
