I meet Shawn through a good friend of mine Kevin Bruinsma, he told me about Shawn and his work and how he was a pretty cool guy. Once Kevin handed me his business card I was sure that it was going to be a great connection. I checked out his site and learned a little more about him, then shot him and email and said what’s up. And just like that the conversation started to flow and now I will be meeting him today to discuss who really has the hottest hair in the game ;). This week I share with you my connection and now yours; Shawn Stuckey. Enjoy.
My name is Shawn Stuckey, and as a matter of fact I answer this exact question on my site. Here’s the link.
If you don’t feel like leaving this blog, (and I don’t blame you) I’ll summarize. I’m a self-motivated graphic designer constantly learning and growing so that I can expand the language of design. I work in identity, print, Illustration, informational web, large format signage, and video.
I am also a husband, father, home brewer, Blackhawk fan, and nano reef (small marine aquarium) hobbyist. If you click on the Nemo sketch on my homepage, it will take you to my Tank thread on a site that I frequently give advice or witty left-handed remarks to fellow hobbyist.
Every other Monday I try to make the Pint Ride from the Trek store in Schererville to the Crown Brewery in Crown Point. It is getting cold out, so I may just board up until April. On Saturdays you can find me at open skate at Midwest Ice Arena in Dyer trying to build my hockey skillz back up so I can keep up with my son, who was named “Hockey Student of the Month” in September.
I am currently working with the non-profit “The Sunny Project” to develop their corporate identity. It started out as an illustration job for a children’s book. As that book made its way into other countries and languages an idea was born. Now it has become “The Sunny Project” which ensures that disadvantaged children have the resources they need for educational success throughout the world.
