About Brian Mays

Who I Am

I am a husband to a great wife, a daddy to two awesome little boys, a son to my faithful mom, dad and in-laws, a brother to my bold sister and a number of brother- and sister-in-laws, an uncle to numerous nieces and nephews, and hopefully a reliable friend to many.

I have a life mantra: Be Nice, Have Fun.

What I Do

I’m a professional graphic designer.

I constantly train myself in design software and techniques I don’t know. It’s how I got into web design, animation, and various other niche areas.

I help others in my profession be better at what they do, whether it’s designing or billing or standing up for their legal rights. Creatives getting taken advantage of fires me up.

I conduct graphic design training using various pieces of design software.

I advocate for adoption, as one of our sons is adopted.

I workout and take care of myself more these days. I’m thin-framed and won’t be mistaken for a Marvel hero anytime soon, but I definitely need to be able to keep up with two little guys.

I collect and create with LEGO bricks. I have so many LEGO bricks they must be stored in the garage.

I always root for whichever team is playing the Atlanta Braves. Blame 1992, Sid Bream and Francisco Cabrera.

I collect old cartoons, mostly from the 1950-1999 time frame.
