Welcome to my online portfolio!
I am Vincent Abanyie, visionary behind Masterpiece Design Group. Creative design is my passion and I have been developing my skills in this area for over 22 years. While my educational background includes an A.A.S. in Computer Graphics & Multimedia, and a B.F.A in Graphic Design, most of the design techniques I have learned are self-taught through online tutorials, books, and trial and error of unique projects. It is very important for me to continuously keep up with leading digital media trends. Simply put, I truly enjoy mastering the arts and tackling new challenges.
I aim to produce high quality design styles that are clean and set apart to raise the standard of the competition. I believe keeping this goal at the forefront of my work has afforded me the opportunity to produce work for dozens of clients ranging from start-ups and non-profits to Fortune 500 companies. Some of my work has been featured in Graphic Design USA magazine and awarded numerous web design awards.
These tremendous professional experiences have been built through the guidance and encouragement of extraordinary friends, family, and colleagues all around me. This is the reason why I feel so strongly about the power of giving back. For a semester in 2002, I returned to one of my alma maters, Burlington County College, to serve as an Adjunct Professor, teaching web design to curious digital artists just like myself.
I am also an illustrator at heart. The amusement I get from making the cartoon characters in my mind come to life, or sketching out a logo that establishes a whole new identity for a company in need of branding, is a personal interest that will last a lifetime.
Currently, I live in New Jersey with my wife and 2 sons, where great ideas are born daily.
