Los Angeles 2019, where I attended Adobe MAX

Hello! I'm John Naboye, a Filipino-Canadian graphic designer based in Edmonton, Alberta. 
I like to venture into multidisciplinary settings, respect and allude to cultures through design, and explore creative possibilities. I finished the Bachelor of Design program at MacEwan University in April of 2021. With roots in photography and videography, my design interests gravitate towards the visual communication realm, which includes branding, digital media, and time-based media (i.e. motion graphics).
Other than entering the industry with a solid design job, I'm super ambitious in starting my own creative studio one day, but I'm also intrigued with the idea of going down the research route due to my interests in sociology, geography, and city planning. Since design exists in all aspects of society, I hope to bring these interests into my practice one day. 
Some fun facts about me:
• Second to design, I have a passion for music, primarily DJing and finding new beats.
• As a kid, I would avoid novels and read atlases, almanacs, and encyclopedias, which cultivated my interest in maps. 
• I was a Filipino folk dancer and teacher for 13 years where I travelled the world to compete and perform.
