Today we’d like to introduce you to Darold Pinnock.
Darold, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have been drawing basically all my life but My professional career started in 2006. I went to school to study Building Design and during that process, I fell in love with graphic design. So between working at an engineering firm and school, I spent most of my free time teaching myself graphic design and all the programs necessary. As years went by little I narrowed down my focus to logo design and branding.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road was only a struggles when I was trying to be everything to everyone. The minute I started to narrow down my focus and find my niche or my sweet spot everything just came together. Now that doesn’t mean everything always goes as plan but now when something doesn’t go as plan, all I do is learn from it adjust and keep on going. I spend very little time in the negative column.
What’s the hardest part of your job?
It’s kind of tough to say what the hardest part is because I really do enjoy designing and solving visual problems. I have been designing for 10 years and I pretty much know what kind of projects I want and I know when a client is not a right fit. So I would after designing for so long I have put various systems in place to eliminate me disliking what I do.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
At this current season in my career, success for me is to wake up every morning doing what I love for a living and being well paid to do it. Then being able to show someone else how to do the same.
What are your plans for the future?
The biggest plan I have right now is to take a year off in 2020 and basically do whatever with my family. Creating a year of adventure.
