I’m Joslan Botosh. A graphic designer who has the itch to allow my young, imaginative mind to roam wild. Finds stress relief in hand lettering. Believer that an exceptional cup of tea can solve anything. Always open to freelance opportunities. Dreamer of bigger and better. Always finding inspiration in the little things. Girl of infectious laughter and a contagious amount of zeal.
When did you begin graphic design?
My love of graphic design started out in a communications classroom at my high school. I found that, as someone who considered themselves an art kid, I was able to create art in other mediums far beyond that of what I knew, and my mind was blown. From that point forward, it was always a hobby for me. I created movie posters for books I had read, turned my hand lettering into digital pieces, the possibilities were endless and I embraced that.
What made you interested in graphic design?
To be honest, my interest came from the work of others. I saw these incredible pieces and wondered how I could create something that has an impact on others the way their work had an impact on me. Design is everywhere. It surrounds us. I wanted my art to make people feel something, to drive them to pick up that book because of the details in the cover, or to buy a specific bottle of wine because the packaging was just too beautiful.
Why did you choose this career path? (if it is your career path)
I wanted to find something that I genuinely loved and do that for life. My parents kept pushing me to pursue my creativity. Graphic design was my way of not only doing what I loved but also being able to find success in it.
What is your dream job? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
As of right now, I would love to be working alongside some of the best in the business on high profile accounts and going to a job that excites and inspires great creativity on the daily. In the same breath, I also have a desire to own my own business using my love of hand lettering and design to create beautiful stationary, branding, and otherwise.
Who is your inspiration?
As I said earlier, I find a lot of inspiration through the work and creative processes of others. Whether it be through Pinterest, Instagram, magazines, or word of mouth, I can always find some new, undiscovered, underestimated designer doing something amazing that sparks ideas. I also really love to follow the work of Sagmeister & Walsh, a New York based design firm that creates some really intense and influential design.
