FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY BS IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

Camdon Wilde writes: “I’m originally from Texas, but have been fortunate to live all over the world. I’m now somewhat settled with my wife and son back in the great southwestern U.S. I consider myself an overall multidisciplinary graphic designer but specializing in logos and branding. I began as a part-time, self-taught freelance designer while my first career wound down. Later, I decided to “formalize” my design education. When I got started at Full Sail University, I quickly realized that I had significant gaps to fill! I very recently received my degree. You often hear the advice, ‘do what you love’ and ‘turn your favorite hobby into a career’ and that’s exactly what I’m doing now! I have a true passion for most all things design-related and try to reflect that attitude in my work.”
