Cameron Roy Crosby is the quintessential California dude with an affinity for minimalist design and Mexican food. He’s currently finishing his BFA in Graphic Design and, before that, spent time studying architecture, design, and language at La Sorbonne in Paris. He firmly believes his 3.9 GPA is unacceptably low and if his professors are reading this he demands they review. Crosby is a design assistant at local studio Cherry Blossom Creative. His passions include visual production, traveling, watching English Premier League and La Liga fixtures, and skate/snow /surf boarding. Crosby aims to lead a life of genuine happiness through simplicity, travel, and good drinks. Cheers!.
