I USED TO PLAY THE DRUMS UNTIL I TAUGHT MY SELF GRAPHIC DeSIGN
Hi! I'm Pymns ("p-imz") otherwise known as Pete Reisner, a self taught illustrator and graphic designer. I am 29 years old and live happily in Bath, UK with my wife and baby daughter.
I've always had a powerful inclination for art and creation since a young age. When I discovered music, in particular nu-metal and alternative, I fell headfirst into an exciting culture of bands and records. I loved the artwork, logos and merchandise of my favourite artists so much, I set about designing and branding my very own imaginary band. By the age of 11, and after only a handful of drum lessons, I was recording demos at the family home computer. I produced CD sleeves and coded a bunch of primitive artist profiles on Myspace.
Years later, and with multiple record releases, touring and a music degree in the bag, I turned my focus back to the world of design. I found myself learning the basics of Adobe Illustrator to create art for screen printing t-shirts.
I now have 4+ years of freelancing full time as an illustrator and graphic designer. I have worked with a number of wonderful clients predominantly in the hospitality sector, to design branding, packaging and promotional print.
I love drawing and designing bold and expressive characters, typography and logos. But really I am so very grateful to be doing it ALL.
Select clients include: The City Pub Company, Cattle Shed Brewing Company, Old Dairy Brewery, World Class Willow, Brewed Boy, Imaginary Friends Brewing, The Bath Brew House, Wolf Wine, Kabala Kitchen, Sauce That Rocks.
