Being in NYC has had a huge impact on me as a designer. Where else can one be exposed to such diverse art scene -- museums, street art, and art community? While professionally I have been inspired by the clean and modern aesthetic of Massimo Vignelli, Saul Bass, Paul Rand, and most of Swiss graphic design, it's the experimental, ever-changing design work by graphic designers and design agencies such as Milton Glaser, Sagmeister & Walsh, Marian Bantjes, Studio Dumbar and Wolff Ollins that excites me most.
