Welcome to the Website of Revolution9 Graphic Design! Owned and Operated by Kelsey! Here is a short story about myself, my journey, and how I got here.
While going through high school, I discovered I had a passion for art and automotive; it never felt like a task, never something I dreaded doing unlike science and social studies. I could spend hours working on a canvas or my cars. But until recently, I never figured out how I could combine these two passions into a career where I could do both! I was always told it’s either one or the other.
At first, I thought, ‘why not go to business school? Get a diploma in marketing, which for sure will open up some doors. Maybe I can work at a dealership!’ Nope, after my dreams were crushed and I couldn’t find my ideal job, I settled for less, not pursuing my passions and working a job that didn’t incorporate anything that I loved in life. I had hit a hard, deep, and disappointing rut; mainly disappointed in myself for thinking I didn’t try hard enough or I wasn’t good enough for the career I had in mind.
After Covid19 hit; I had an epiphany! What about graphic design? I contacted five different schools with the same program till I found one that was close to home. Learning about all the different kinds of design programs and all the avenues of opportunity I have, I thought ‘ this is it!’ I can create works of art! with cars! Being photoshop or photography and even videos! There was the occasion where I was definitely out of my comfort zone, but once I was up and over that hill I felt amazing! I met people who motivated and inspired me and most importantly believed in me and what I can do. Failure is critical for success, I am constantly learning, growing, creating connections, realizing my full potential, and pushing myself to be better.
