My name is Paul Donnell, and I'm a graphic designer from Gluckstadt, MS. If you haven't heard of it, no big deal, but it is where I began developing my eye for design. I further developed my skills at The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS receiving my BFA in Graphic Design. I am currently the Marketing Coordinator for Memorial Health System in Gulfport, MS.

I have a great passion for the work that I do. I'm not just a fine artist, but a great communicator.

I enjoy illustrating, typography, photography, video production, web design, layout design, and dabbling in copywriting.

I am both proficient and hard-working, driven to make successful designs and concepts. Brainstorming and research are an essential part of my method to creating compelling designs.
