Knowledge, and the search for it is the driving force in my life. Since I was a boy, I've built things, and taken things apart in order to understand process.
My name is Eric Michael Moran, and I am a graphic designer living and working in Toronto, Canada. I am highly influenced and inspired by advertising and it's relentless ability to convey messages through images and perception.
My design process is fueled with versatility, intuition, and insight into the images and spaces that surround us.
I've traveled the world & the internet extensively, collecting experiences and understanding, to which I call on with every design problem I face.
My formal design education began at Humber College, where I studied Multimedia Design. Here I learned vital technical skills in a wide range of software and platforms that gave me the means to communicate my message with images and type.
Since then, I've revised and refined my skills with unrelenting ambition.
In 2009, I began studying Architecture & Communications at the University of Toronto. I gained a deep understanding of spatial communication and theoretical design principals.
My visual communication skills became three dimensional. The number of design solutions were now exponential.
My unwavering passion for work and my highly competitive nature are my greatest strengths. My primary goal is to surround myself with people that feel the same.
