Digital Designer / Webmaster / Artist
Who is Vinny John Usuriello?
In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m a digital designer and artist. I had a passion for art from an early age and would spend most of my time drawing my favorite TV and movie characters. As I grew older and technology became more advanced I became interested in all things digital. Suddenly I found myself learning graphics programs such as Photoshop, languages such as HTML / CSS, and eventually some video and effects software. Art has always been my passion, and with todays technology it helps me express myself in a variety of ways. Web design intrigues me because of how large it has become. People use the web to buy merchandise, learn new things and for entertainment purposes. The possibilities are endless when designing websites and that’s a very exciting field for an artist to go into.
Along with design, I still love to paint. I gravitated towards digital painting and have been enjoying it for some time. This web portfolio shows a combination of my digital painting as well as my web / digital design. I am continuing to challenge myself and enhance my skills in this exciting field. Currently I am available for new opportunities and would love to connect!
