There are a lot of designers out there today, but not all of them get to work with some of the biggest music artists around, as well as upscale restaurants. Yet, that is what LA-based designer Dvinci has been doing. Thanks to his extensive experience and expertise, he has become the go-to designer for an increasing number of businesses and performers.
Dvinci is a bit of a ninja right now. He remains quiet behind the scenes, but accomplishes impressive feats when it comes to design, be it logos, branding, packaging, shoes, belts, and more. Staying versatile is his edge. He can wear many hats easily, and often will switch between design, video, and animation projects.
Being a designer for several years now, Dvinci has developed quite an extensive portfolio. He has worked with the upscale Beverly Hills restaurant Crustacean, designing its logo, branding, and packaging. He has also had a hand in updating the designs for several restaurants in Koreatown, including Brothers Korean Barbeque and Baekjeong Restaurant.
The main clientele Dvinci receives these days include music artists in the hip hop scene. These include such artists as the late Nipsey Hussle, Nispey’s main artist Archer1, Souja Boy’s BLVD Supply, 1500 or Nothing’s “Rance” Dopeson and James Fauntleroy, and even gospel singer Rubi Green.
He also worked at Dash Radio with DJ Skee and also is currently working with Yung LB w/ Runtz. In fact, he has designed all of the packaging for this viral cannabis strain that Yung LB has promoted through such features as the song Obomba Runtz. This is currently his major project, for which he is also designing all of the strain’s associated websites, logos, videos, and graphics.
What separates Dvinci apart from many in his field is the way he goes about his creative process. What he does first is deeply understand what a client wants. Gaining clarity is the key to delivering exactly what a client wants. Following this key step is a big reason why Dvinci has several repeating clients, because they get what they are looking for. Granted, it’s rare for clients to be as detailed as they can be, but that is where Dvinci looks at what is working in the industry his clients are in. He also makes extensive use of mood boards, taking inspiration from seeing something that already exists. For him, this is easier and more constructive than starting from scratch.
Taking mental pictures of something that inspires him helps him excel at creating something exemplary for his clients. He conducts research to help refine and focus his thoughts and creations. Ironically, some of his best work happened by accident, as many great creations happen. That’s why he has learned to follow his intuition. He feels out concepts and then lets them develop according to what feels the most natural. What some call “accidents” are actually part of the creation process, giving character to designs along the way.
Dvinci plans to continue being the go-to designer for anyone and any business looking to stand out and be eye-catching.
