ABOUT ME

Brian Crim Columbus based Graphic Designer / Illustrator

Confucius says "Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life" I love creating things and I consider myself extremely lucky when I get paid to do it. For the past decade I have been helping individuals and companies convey their values and aims with concise and consistent visual identities. I am passionate about what I do and I like working with clients who feel the same way about their work. I pride myself on being a competent person and work hard to make sure I understand every aspect of the project I am working on. I am currently available for freelance work.

Hallmarks of the INTJ include independence of thought and

a desire for efficiency. They work best when given autonomy and creative freedom. They harbor an innate desire to express themselves by conceptualizing their own intellectual designs. They have a talent for analyzing and formulating complex theories.

 

In leadership roles, INTJs are quite effective, because they are able

to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough

to change things which aren't working well. They are the supreme strategists - always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every

conceivable contingency.

 

INTJs have a tremendous amount of ability to accomplish great things. They have insight into the Big Picture, and are driven to synthesize their concepts into solid plans of action. Their reasoning skills gives them the means to accomplish that. INTJs are most always highly competent people, and will not have a problem meeting their career or education goals. They have the capability to make great strides in these arenas.
