My name is Zak Eidsvoog (that's pronounced "Aides-vog" for you curious readers). I am a graphic designer/illustrator/animator with broad interests and 6 years’ experience working with clients to create dynamic and engaging pieces.
I currently live in Portland, OR, but frequently work remotely with clients across the globe, and I am always on the lookout for new, exciting design opportunities.
WHAT I BELIEVE IN
I believe that designers and artists of all stripes have the power to change the world and the responsibility to do so for the better. I believe in hard work, but I also believe in humor, fun and play. In fact, I believe that these elements are at the root of my favorite kinds of design.
HOW I WORK
I work by getting excited about the projects that come before me. If you work with me on something, expect me to have a lot of questions for you up front as I dig into the weeds on whatever you are making/selling/communicating. I get passionate about a lot of different things when it comes to my projects. Sometimes I am passionate about subject matter, or a unique idea/mission. Other times, I find passion in systems or formal considerations.
WHAT I AM ABOUT
I am a person about a lot of things. I am about design. I am about color and art and drawing. I am a person about board games and video games and little games on my phone. I am about my dog. I am a person about the present. Sometimes, I am also a person about wishing I were more about the future. I am a person about possibility and opportunity. I am a person about saying yes.
WHAT EXCITES ME
Projects I find engaging involve exploration and play. They involve complex systems and many different elements working together to form a cohesive whole. I’m fascinated by the dimensions that exist between 2-D, 3-D and 4-D design.
