I'm Dan! Marino (exclamation point credit goes to my mentor Josh Drews!).
I have a bit of design ADD, in that many mediums excite me: from identity and brand extension, to publication design, to exhibition and installations. Even though I graduated from North Carolina State in May, I am always pushing myself to learn more. I enjoy drinking caffeine, getting out from behind the computer, and getting down to work! Feel free to contact for questions, comments, or if you want to know if I can throw a ball as far as the other Dan Marino.
