Sako Shahinian was born on 1980 in Beirut, Lebanon. From a young age he picked up the pencil and began making marks on paper. Those marks quickly became images of what he saw and what he was curious about. Never letting down his pencil he nurtured and sharpened his skill until people called it talent. That recognition eventually got him attending Los Angeles County High School of the Arts and later In 2004 Sako, went on to graduate from Art Center College of Design with a bachelor of fine arts with honors in illustration.
belief: good design is good business
My belief is simple: designing a brand is like designing a relationship. When looking for your soul mate, you’re attracted to three things: looks, personality and substance. When you find all three, you’re bound for engagement (pun intended). Building a brand is no different. Successful and long-lasting brands use all three ingredients to attract their audience in today’s crowded marketplace. Without good design as the first stage of brand attraction, you’re just another one night stand.
Focusing to create exceptional multi-platform work, Sako seeks a visual that is functional and unique where quality is stressed and a fearless creative approach to effective problem solving is welcomed.
