Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Nutini.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I always loved art as a kid and loved to paint and draw. I used to do fine art paintings and didn’t feel like it was going anywhere so I got into digital graphics and graphic design after traveling around the country for a while and making it through some rocky times of drinking and doing drugs I finally decided go to school for graphic design and video production in Cincinnati and after that, I moved to Colorado.
I started out working in a screenprint shop in Littleton doing graphics for them. I kept trying to discover and develop my style over this time period. I kept working towards getting my own clients and now I just do freelance work and work for myself which is pretty liberating, to say the least.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Not at all. I have almost given up so many times over the years being frustrated by not getting where I wanted to be. The drug years didn’t help with motivation and pushing forward at the time. But getting free of that definitely opened up a lot more doors for me to pursue my goals.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I mainly specialize in flyer/poster graphics. I am probably best known for my 3D lenticular poster prints. I created a series of lenticular Grateful Dead posters that are still sold in the parking lots of shows to this day. I am pretty proud of that series and just the fact that I have finally reached a point in life where I am working for myself and don’t have to work a 9-5.
Can you talk to us a bit about the role of luck?
I wouldn’t necessarily say luck has played a role as much as perseverance and not giving up.
