A little bit about myself

Hey! I'm Devin Halladay, a designer, poet, developer, sound artist, electronic musician, and sculptor—among other things.

I'm currently living in Baltimore, studying the intersections of design, sculpture, sound, and code at the Maryland Institute College of Art. I have a passion for interdisciplinary sculpture and for applying the poetics of space to all forms of media.

I live and work according to four core tenets:

  • Learn the rules;
  • Promptly and mercilessly break them with spirit and intent;
  • Experiment relentlessly; and
  • Create fearlessly.

Experience


Designer, Freelance 2012–Present

Working with a wide range of clients on diverse projects including web and mobile, branding and identity, poster design, and print has given me the opportunity to explore the design landscape. I collaborate with developers and designers to create effective solutions for clients small and large, in the technology, communications, fashion, lifestyle, entertainment, and non-profit industries.

Designer/Founder, Ministry of Print 2014–2015

As an experiment and successful side project, the Ministry of Print worked to design posters revolving around the idea between word and visual, concept and creation, ephemeral and enduring. Experimentations in communication and representation allowed me to freely break my own rules, fail, and succeed through a process of intellectual ideation and the physical graphic manifestation of my thought processes.

Designer, Leapwise 2014

At Leapwise my job was to create a wide range of designs for clients, ranging from nonprofits to startups to international companies. I worked closely with a team of three other designers and a developer to create effective solutions to client briefs. Additionally, I collaborated daily with the team of developers at Veritix, a Cleveland-based ticketing solutions company, to design and execute a line of ticketing apps and a conceptual rebrand of the company itself and its flagship product, FlashSeats.


Leadership


Leader, MICA Design League 2015–Present

As a freshman, I was invited to lead the MICA Design League, a student-run organization backed by the Graphic Design department. The MDL sponsors and organizes exhibitions, events, and programming for graphic design majors. Responsibilities include organizing meetings and events, meeting with advisors, and attending Student Voice Association meetings. The nomination made me the first freshman ever to lead the MDL.
