FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (FIT)
Born and raised at the Jersey shore, now residing in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan, Garrett Majewski is in his last year finishing up his degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology with a minor in Art History. At the core of his work, Garrett utilizes typographic layout and exploration along with strong conceptual pieces to create his work. Garrett also dabbles in various other digital mediums experimenting with 3D through Blender, Cinema4d, and Voxels. His work focuses around finding proper solutions with a creative flair adapting to different styles and mediums. Garrett’s main focus is on publication and editorial work but he loves working in any style learning new techniques and solutions. With a strong, dedicated passion for design, he hopes to bring a new, interesting, and creative perspective to design and any project he is involved in.
IF YOU COULD HAVE COFFEE WITH ANY HISTORICAL FIGURE, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
I would love to have a coffee (or tea) with Wolfgang Weingart. I draw a ton of inspiration from his work and typographic layouts and I think it would be an inspirational conversation.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOUR TIME IN DESIGN SCHOOL HAS TAUGHT YOU THAT YOU DIDN’T EXPECT?
The most important things I have learned are the need for time management and self motivation. These two ideas go hand in hand when I am designing and they are quintessential to creating strong conceptual work (and also meeting deadlines in time).
WHAT ARE YOU READING/LISTENING TO/WATCHING?
I am currently reading Draplin Design Co: Pretty Much Everything by Aaron Draplin and Ready Player Two by Ernest Cline.
