Hello, I’m Chelsea Eason and I am a graphic designer, photographer, web designer, and traditional artist. I live by the principles of my motto, “Design. Create. Inspire.” My talent drives my desire to design. My passion drives my desire to create. My character drives my desire to inspire.
From as far back as I can remember, I have always had this unquenchable passion for all things creative, everything from graphic arts to fine arts. I remember the moment I played around with the first Adobe Photoshop program on my brother’s computer (I was very young) and knew that I wanted to explore everything I could create on the computer. I remember being the kid in grade-school that craved the time to paint and use my Crayola Crayons to make something beautiful. I remember my first experience behind an SRL camera, and working in the darkroom to develop a photograph worth falling in love with. I remember designing websites on paper and browsing the internet and saying “I can do better.” My tools have definitely improved, but my passion has never died down.
I have been doing graphic design jobs for 6+ years, and I usually become the go-to designer where-ever I go. I am also a photographer with 8 years of experience obsessively photographing everywhere I can. There has always been this fire inside me for design and it is something that has been growing year by year. With an Art degree from EMU and a minor in Communications under my belt, I am on the hunt for people willing to let me design for them. I have the talent to prove myself, the work ethic to make it happen, and the passion to keep me going.
That is my motto. I not only live by the simplicity of each word, but also by the true meaning each word carries with them. To design means to see something in life with your eyes, visualize the potential of what it can be at its best, plan how it can meet that potential, and execute exactly what it needs to be. To create means give life to an idea, to start from somewhere, with whatever tools you have available, and to do everything in your power to make it come alive. To inspire means to live in a manner that the light you bring into the world not only lights your own path, but the path of those who need it. I live by these words, and they have fueled the passion behind who I am today.
