Hello, I’m Marcel Smith and I’m currently a third year student at Wayne with a major in Graphic Design. I fell in love with the course from an early age of eight when I made my first comic strip for my family. My grandma still has that strip along with the written script and rough draft at her house. I took it as an accomplishment and wanted to see how far I wanted to take it. It soon escalated to full size books to creating my own characters to creating my own “brand” for the family. And now I find myself in high school then on to college trying to graduate on the one thing I love. I guess that’s what been driving me for the last thirteen years: to create something that everyone likes and what I can be proud of.
My favorite things are generic.
I love pizza, Netflix, money, Canada, architecture design and Nike
P.S- my favorite typeface/font is phosphorus inline and solid.
