About Me
GRAPHIC DESIGNER AND CONTENT DEVELOPER FROM VANCOUVER.
Hi, I’m Jeremy Reay!
As a small town kid in northern Alberta, i used art as an outlet to go beyond my rural environment.
my sense of discovery and adventure remain unchanged and has allowed me to pursue a career that feeds my imagination. trained in graphic, layout, and web design, i hope to help others bring their ideas to life.
When I’m not doing design things, I can be found searching for the newest caffeine hotspot, tending to my many plant children, or planning my next foreign adventure.
