Thanks for checking out my page. 
I'm Griffin DeJoy, a Graphic Designer from Athens, Georgia.
My passions include: making logos, taking cool pictures, neon signage, and them Dawgs. I've been doing graphic design for over 18 years. I started with making a logo for my friend's rec basketball team, and have continued to blend my passion for art and sports ever since. I currently serve as the Director of Creative Media for the App State Football Team.
I went to the University of Georgia for undergrad and got my BFA in Graphic Design in 2017. After graduating, I continued working for a local business called The Sign BrothersWe primarily made, you guessed it, SIGNSLike A LOT of signs. Apartments, hospitals, churches, cities, big businesses, small businesses. But over time, we weren't just doing signs, we were redesigning entire new locker rooms or donor spaces. We called these projects  Experiential Design. Which is like design but for the human experience. Which was cool! Like presenting design presentations at Atlanta United's training facility next to Arthur Blank's office, kind of cool. But then Covid happened and kinda ruined the entire human experience...
So I went BACK to the University of Georgia and got my Masters degree in Emerging Media through the New Media Institute while also working as a Graduate Assistant for UGA Athletics. I created a wide range of content for the University’s 14 sports teams. Most of the time it was social media templates, managing social strategy, or printed projects like schedule posters and apparel. Sometimes it was designing new uniforms for the baseball team. Or one time, i mean TWO TIMES, live tweeting National Championship football games. Or even creating a logo for the Title IX 50th Anniversary campaign. 
Through the Emerging Media masters program, I gained a wide range of contemporary tech skills. Things like building apps & websites, professional development cycles like Sprints, & augmented reality experiences. My goal in obtaining this degree was to become a more well rounded designer, I want to bring a wide range of skill and understanding to a team. I recognize that I can’t do it all, but I can do a lot. 
I prefer in-person work over at-home work, but don’t mind when there’s a good balance. I work well in groups, both as a leader and a supporter, and find collaborative work preferable over working alone. I care deeply about the work that I create and will do what it takes to make things better. Thank you for checking out my portfolio and taking the time to read all this. 
If you think I can help you with your next project drop me a line!
