Russell developed an interest in graphic design from Art classes in high school. He likes art because it lets him be creative and express his views with inspiration from the great outdoors and pop culture. While in VCC, he discovered that he really enjoyed packaging design, typography and brand identity design.
To fuel his creative side, he will study food services after graphic design to learn culinary art skills. After that, he dreams of pursuing an art career such as cartooning or freelance designing.
