The Man Behind The Shark

IMG_1856_updated.jpg

My name is Dan Blessing and since the age of five, creative juices were running through my veins. When I wasn't eating, I was putting my imagination on paper. Drawing the likes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers and made up super heroes, like "Shark Man".

Fast forward to present day, I am a more evolved creative thinker and graphic designer who graduated with my bachelor’s degree in graphic design in 2008 from Clarion University of PA. I take pride in helping clients meet their creative goals with precise planning and execution. My focus is Logo & brand identity Design. I have a passion and experience in both, sports & corporate branding.

Since the inception of Design Shark™ in 2013, I have brainstormed for over a year to come up with a logo and identity to best compliment what I want my brand to stand for. I wanted to create a visual system that portrays my personality and the way I conduct myself professionally.

On the surface of my brand choice, sharks have always fascinated me since I was young so it was only fitting to create my identity by integrating these majestic creatures with my brand. On a deeper level, aside from being the apex predator in the ocean, shark is also defined as ‘one who excels greatly especially in a particular field.’ (Merriam-Webster Dictionary) They are relentless and precise animals as they swim and attack their prey. I want my brand to portray my professionalism and the fact that I am relentless and will use precision to execute a design project to fit the client’s particular needs to perfection.
