I’m CJ Zilligen, I’m a student at North Central College, I’m 18, and I’m in love with everything design.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been that kid in math class doodling on today’s notes in hopes I’ll still remember the material for tomorrow. Though I’ve been fortunate enough to both balance my academics and my endless doodling for what’s been 3 years now.
At the age of 9, I was creating my own football league while my inspirations were fixed to the suited-up soldiers playing on Sundays. By the age of 15, I’m putting an effort to make these team identities come to life, spinning up each of the uniforms for this fictional 32-team league. By 16, my dream of creating a full-out football league inspired by my childhood aspirations has blossomed to an unsatisfying hunger for everything design. Flash forward to today. Flash forward to work for small businesses, my two high schools, adult baseball teams, prestigious universities. I feel like my feed for design is only beginning.
I love what I do. I’ve been blessed to have gotten where I have and to have worked with the people I’ve encountered on my journey.
For those of you looking for an original piece – whether that’s your son’s football team’s logo identity, your dad’s corporate business marks, or your sister’s business headers – I’d love to help bring your ideas to existence, as well.
