Hello there! And welcome to Sweet B — the creative hub for graphic designer, Brittany "B" Sweney. Sweet B features all design, photography, freelance, and personal projects from the designer.
So what makes me, B? I'm motivated by the discovery of the unknown and the thrill (and nerves) of experiencing something new. I continuously seek to grow and expand my knowledge as, not only a designer, but also as a person. I look at my life as an adventure — and love new challenges no matter how big or small.
I love to mix design. Whether it's a nice harmony between digital and physical design, illustration and rockin' typography, or sweet calligraphy overlaid on a bold photo, I always design to make a project one-of-a-kind. I want people to take a minute out of their busy day to stop and smell the roses. But design isn't just about looking pretty. I always keep the end user in mind and find a style that works with the company's brand and mission.
I always remember being totally in love with rewinding my mother's film in her camera as a child. Maybe this excitement of a photograph carried with me more than I realized, because early on in my degree, I began incorporating photography into my design work. I added two minors to my degree, one of which was in Digital Photography. The journey has really enforced my eye for detail and overall layout of a project.
Being creative is not just part of my nine to five, it's also part of who I am. In my free time, I am working on anywhere between two to five projects at any given moment, and have a crazy long list of ones I can't wait to start! I love creating new things so much, that I tend to find myself taking on freelance or working on my own projects in any spare time. When I'm not creating, I enjoy traveling, exploring, soaking up sunshine, collecting paper sample books, yoga, star gazing, volleyball, biking, and perusing garage sales.
