With the New Year, Cultus has managed to fulfill one of its resolutions – logo redesign. We have decided to select a simple, but powerful option that reflects our goals for the future. We strive towards become more established e-learning portal and will be joining efforts towards bringing more interesting and useful edu-tech content.
The logo was redesigned by the young and talented Norman, who was kind to give us an interview, which you can read further on.
Norman E. Wright a graphic and web designer, who grew up living on the beautiful island Jamaica. At a very young age he was curious and wanted to know how things work. Many times this involved him pulling them apart, then putting them back together, and learning by doing. While attending Knox College High School, he did Technical Drawing and this is where his passion for design began.
1. Why did you decide to go into the design business?
I believe I was born to be a designer, it’s something that I’ve always had a passion for. Initially, I wanted to be an architect, but developed a love for graphic and web design.
2. What are your impressions on the current web design industry?
The web design industry has a huge impact in terms of commerce and communication today. Most companies and individuals have a web presence whether it’s a blog, company website or social network profile. This opens the door to making connections across the globe, connections which otherwise would not be possible.
3. Do you think the design industry is changing on a rapid scale, and do you consider this important?
When I think of the design industry, I consider all the things we use on a daily basis. Whether it’s a building, the clothes we wear, a car, pair of shoes or your toothbrush, someone had to design it before it could be manufactured. The web design industry is changing rapidly and this is good process, since this change brings innovation and improvement in areas such as user experience, web standards and security.
The challenge is to keep up to date with these changes and to implement them where applicable. For example, in recent years, the mobile device market has increased significantly, so it’s important for websites to be mobile-friendly. In our days, web professionals have more and more tools available (such as open source responsive frameworks) to address this concern. The increased change and diversity within the industry presents more opportunities, as well as possibilities for the future.
4. How will you define your future prospects and plans?
If I could use one word to define my future prospects and plans, it would be “growth”. I intend to develop my skills further, as well as explore other areas of design.
Thank you Norman. Cultus Team wishes you a prosperous and outstanding career.
