My name is Bryan Lisbona and I am a graphic designer. Graphic design is the professional art of visualizing ideas. I apply this vision into variable project types for a diverse group of clients. My goal is and always has been to be an extension to the creative talent of every firm. Whether it be individual projects or group initiatives I am interested in being a part of the creative process and a part of your creative team.
As a member of AIGA, the professional association for design, I stay active in the design community through the many outlets the organization offers to it’s members. I have been recognized multiple times for my work through juried competition and I have also received international exposure on the pages of PRINT Magazine and Graphis.
My work specializes in Branding, Identity, Environmental, Interactive and Print Design. I am interested in working with you on a project. If you are interested in working with me, please give me a call at (913) 515-6348 or send me an email. Thanks!
