Hello, I’m Bryan Minear, a Detroit-based graphic designer with focuses in advertising & interactive design, and expertise in commercial photography.
I am a creative by nature and design. I would work for free if this wasn’t my full-time job. I am extremely blessed to have all of the talents that I have, and I want to share them with the world. I love music, cooking, road tripping, and taking pictures. And I find inspiration for all that I create in those things. I breathe technology, I am constantly reading on tech blogs so much that my wife calls me a nerd. I am married to the most wonderful human being on the planet and thankfully she supports all that I do. I am an Ohio State football fan, and believe it or not, I still find time to work during football season. My faith in something greater is what drives me.
Since graduating college, I have been a part of this industry and have strived to be on the cutting edge, while maintaining my own personal style. I am a perfectionist, and I love to see a creative idea through to the end, even if it ends up in my “unapproved” folder. I have a passion for screen printing and print design, and I can’t resist fine packaging. I am a Mac user/fanboy because I need more than Windows products generally have to offer. But I am fluent in the Windows environment if I need to be. I love working with texture and my textures folder is probably bigger than you would believe. I am always shooting photos with my iPhone for inspiration.
I see this world through a 50mm lens. Photography is my way of sharing my vision with the world. I am a Canon and Fuji shooter. But the emotion behind a good photograph has nothing to do with the equipment used, it is all about the light. I love to find innovative new ways to use lighting to direct the mood of a photograph. If I could shoot landscapes and earn a living, I would. People are generally interesting, but there is nothing more dynamic to me than capturing something completely candid in nature. I would much rather be off in a remote location with a couple of speedlites than in a studio with the best of equipment.
