Hello, Friend, I am S.R. Wild
I’m a graphic designer and web designer, but I do more with varying levels of skill: collage, printmaking, lettering, calligraphy, type design, animation, and photography. I have borderline jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none syndrome and I’m OK with that. Basically, I’m a designer and I make things with paper and pixels.
I’ve worked on a lot of things: websites, email newsletters, packaging, catalogs, magazines (art directed three at the same time), posters, t-shirts, glassware, and other things I can’t remember. I’ve worked for many types of clients: film & TV companies, breweries, industrial wire manufacturers, film festivals, mail-order fishmongers, computer & video game publications, entertainment magazines, boardgame retailers, banks, lawyers, restaurants, and more.
I live in Burlington, VT with my comedy and criminology writer girlfriend, two of the greatest long-haired cats in the world, and a judgmental tortoise. Both of our cats have FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Cats with FIV can live normal lives with a little bit of extra care. See for yourself. Please, adopt don’t shop and consider the less adoptable ones.
In my free time I ride and fix motorcycles and mopeds. I like to get my hand dirty and not look at a screen. I once attempted to ride a moped from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA. It was one of the most challenging things I’ve ever done. I also rode my motorcycle from Burlington, VT to Portsmouth, NH and back with a broken rib. I love a challenge.
About those Collages
They’re playful scenes assembled from the vintage print materials I unearth from junk shops, thrift stores, and the trash. They have no profound meaning. I love looking through old magazines and catalogs, then meticulously cutting and arranging them. I first started making collages in the early ’90s when I found a stack of old magazines in my parents’ basement and borrowed my mom’s X-ACTO knife. 25.4 years later, I still haven’t returned her X-ACTO knife.
