My name is Siraj Usmani and I am a Creative Director and Senior Graphic Designer for Venture6 Studios. I could go on and on about why I chose this career path, but I think Shepard Fairey summed it up quite beautifully when he said “The power of art is that can impact people emotionally, and lead them to address things intellectually that otherwise they would ignore”.
Since graduating, I have had the pleasure of working for three amazing, but very different companies; One being a biomedical research company called the Insight Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroscience, and the other being an aftermarket automotive manufacturing company called US Speedo. Although extremely different, both have been incredibly rewarding experiences where I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and real life design experience. In November 2017, I began working for Venture6 Studio located in Bay City, MI Where I serve as their Senior Graphic Designer & Creative Director. At Venture6, I work with a team of creative individuals on a wide variety of projects for a number of different clients. These projects vary from generating marketing material, brand development, web design, trade show booth design , or developing content for social media and managing social accounts.
In my spare time, you can find me with family or friends, at the gym, messing around on my longboard or snowboard or learning something new which adds to my set of skills in turn, making me a more well rounded individual.
