As an artist, Cornelius has developed an untraditional mix of mixed media and art. He has often said that “When it comes to his ideas, it’s like a trigger has been pulled, and a vision starts to flow. His inspiration comes from music, from his surroundings, what he has experienced in life, and from a deep hunger to create something different and unique”.
His motto is, “Being creative means having something to say” . . . and the work he produces is representative of that. His work is his voice! And, when it comes to graphic design, he truly believes, “An effective image is what gets the attention”!
Brand your business by starting with a logo design. Your logo is important, it helps to set yourself apart from others.
