Today we’d like to introduce you to Brittani Duval-Champagne.
Brittani, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I am a graphic designer currently living in Chandler, Arizona. I was born in California and raised here in Arizona. I grew up in Avondale, Arizona where I made many friends, went to school, and built many memories. Everyone has a story and some type of rough past, and I would just have to say that through all those rough times is when I found God who helped me through it all.
I found God at a young age when he met me in a very dark time of my life, and if it wasn’t for his light – I probably wouldn’t be here today. I was very suicidal and just felt like I had no purpose, but I found my faith to give me strength. A few years later is when my aunt, mom, and grandmother joined me in church. God is good. I am now 25, experienced many amazing job opportunities where I have learned so much, living the best life, and puts family and my faith first.
I have been through many rocky relationships and met some pretty interesting people, but it wasn’t until my last corporate job is where I found my one. The one who gets me, who cares for me, who loves me unconditionally through the good and bad. He truly is the most amazing man to walk into my life and sweep me off my feet. As of September 8th, of this year – we became one. I am now Mrs. Duval. My husband made me a new mommy to my almost now beautiful one-year-old! Oh my, does that hit hard to think your babies grow SO fast. I am truly blessed as she is such a light to our family.
I enjoy spontaneous trips with my family, relaxing watching movies, and just soaking in the outdoors when it is nice out, you know it is an oven 90% of the time in Arizona. Once I became a new mommy, I struggled hard with postpartum depression. I just wanted flexibility and to be able to be home more with my baby. That is when with my faith and the help of my husband, I created Hi-Brittani Designs, LLC.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I am a graphic designer currently living in Chandler, Arizona. When I was younger, I loved everything art, and I knew I wanted to grow up and do something in the field. Once I reached high school I learned some about design and knew that was for me! So, I went to college and I graduated at the Art Institute of Phoenix with my Bachelor of Arts in Graphic and Web Design with a concentration in illustration.
Once I became a new mommy, I decided that the corporate world was just not for me anymore. I wanted flexibility and to be able to be home more with my baby. That is when with my faith and the help of my husband, I created Hi-Brittani Designs, LLC. I am a freelance graphic designer enjoying being my own boss at home.
At Hi-Brittani Designs, I design anything from marketing materials such as ads, social media posts/banners, sales tools, etc.; Banners, Trade Show Graphics, Everything PRINT DESIGN! (I can help with web, but work with another business to do so.) However, I love to specialize in logo design. I just love putting a face to the name of your business. There is so much into logo design that just brings the business to life, and I have a heart to make the business owner proud to show off their business. I am a fast-paced worker that knows how to get the job done!
Through my work, I aim to present a clean and catchy message while incorporating inspiration that I encounter on a daily basis. I find myself constantly intrigued by shapes, typography, bright color schemes, simplicity, organic style, and photography. In my career, I hope to touch my feet in every part of design.
The stereotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
Honestly, if it wasn’t for my faith and my husband. I wouldn’t be able to be where I am. Just keep pushing forward. In today’s society, art is so important! There is so much copied art, so if you have the creativity to be unique – it is very rare. Just be you! Sell yourself, build relationships, and NETWORK!
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
