I am Jacob Belabed, an artist pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design at SUNY New Paltz.
Having a Fine Arts background, my designs are formed from simple concepts backed by a compelling work ethic. A teacup can be drawn in simple outlines, yet colored a pastel pink and smiling at the viewer. A poster can be entirely typographic, and the words may carry the soul of song lyrics. A drawing of an herb may be drawn with such specific linework that despite being a piece of fine art, it also lives by design.
Themes and meaning are at the center of my work. No matter how abstract an idea may be, I can look into its mechanics, communicating emotion and thought entirely through visual means.
