Typographers, Illustrators & Perfectionists: Graphic Designers

“Good is the enemy of great”, is one of Leslie Martin‘s favorite quotes. It seems to fit with her job as a very detail oriented (she admits she’s a perfectionist) graphic designer.

And she’s not the only one. That quality of perfectionism seems to shine through in so many of the creative and beautiful pages of Graphic Designers on about.me

Some of them, like Lisa Nemetz (in our header photo) use their pages to display their skills and passions. In case you couldn’t tell, Lisa’s a typographer and calligrapher. Others design their pages to incorporate links and apps that show off their portfolios, gorgeous websites, and personal design studios.

A designer himself, our co-founder Ryan Freitas hand picked the pages below.
