About Me

I've been drawn to creative pursuits for as long as I can remember. Many of my earliest memories involve drawing dinosaurs and dancers in Kindergarten-- I picked up the pencil at five years old and never looked back.

My passion for art and my curiosity about new designs have played well together since the day I figured out that I could make the name and date on my school papers look cool. Ever since then, everything has been part of a journey to explore new ways of visual communication.

Eager to push the boundaries of what graphics can do, I completed a two-year college degree in graphic design at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, FL in 2013. I began doing freelance design work immediately afterwards, and quickly found that I loved it. Customer service, a willingness to collaborate, and a drive to create high-quality designs are at the very top of my checklist.

I won't keep you waiting or leave you hanging, and you're guaranteed to walk away with a final product that ensures that you'll stand out against the crowd.
Let's get in touch to discuss how we can combine our creative efforts!

"What Varen created went well above and beyond my expectations, and I am so thrilled with the result! I had an idea of what I wanted to accomplish but gave him free reign to create the piece, and it's the best choice I've made in months.

He took my idea and ran with it, adding elements and subtle interest that I couldn't have dreamed up if I'd tried. Every time I look at the piece I see something new! He was incredibly responsive and communicative, checked in regularly for feedback, and incredibly easy to work with every step of the way. "
