What is your name and how would you briefly describe what you do?My name is Daniel DePierre and I work as an illustrator and graphic designer. In 2007 I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication Design in Sydney, Australia, and have since been working as a freelancer with a wide and exciting range of assignments, from children’s books and illustrations for magazines to logotypes and websites.
What part of your creative work do you like the most?When an idea clicks and the mind visualises the ‘more-than-a-thousand’ words you were trying to communicate. It’s the classic cartoon light bulb that lights up, illuminating everything that was once cloaked in shadows and doubt. In that moment I am calm and focused, and realise that there’s nothing I’d rather do than get to work.
What’s your idea of the perfect job project?The perfect job for me is defined by the objective of the assignment and the people I work with. I love to work with ideas which I believe will benefit people and learn about new businesses and branches of society along the way. It is always a big bonus for me to feel that I am being challenged and ultimately evolving as a visual communicator.
