About Me

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Colin B. Graham and I am a Graphic Designer with ten years of experience designing in Los Angeles. I have been working professionally since 2005 and completed my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design in the Spring of 2007. For the past six years my main focus has been product development and packaging design for the Beauty Industry. Currently, I am freelancing for Revlon Professional and Revlon Australia.

I give comprehensive direction, constructive criticism, and I am able to break down projects into digestible workflows that meet deadlines. I have a passion for branding, concept development, and illustration. I love life and believe it is important to learn something new every day.

TOKYOPOP has published over 3000 books, distributed anime and Asian films on home video and television, licensed merchandise to consumer goods companies, created graphic novels of major brands and led the way digitally in social media, e-commerce and user-generated content.

In my time with TOKYOPOP I have taken numerous japanese manga books and repositioned them for an American consumer. Utilizing key-art and exsisting styles or creating something completely fresh, I was tasked with creating vibrant designs that popped off bookshelves.

Online marketing and advertising was also a key component to TOKYOPOP's sales. I also provided animated and interactive Flash banners as well as maintaining a weekly html newsletter distributed to its thousands of avid fans.
