Creative COW Forum Host
: Vincent Rosati
Vincent Rosati was born in New Jersey, USA, in 1973. Beginning in
2001, he formally entered into the study of graphic design at the Art
Institute of Washington in Virginia. The addition of design principles
and techniques would come to compliment his background in print
production and ground-level manufacturing processes when he found his
first design position with Signs Now in 2003.In
this new position, Rosati would expand his background to include
digital print as the primary method of output. This sign shop
environment would serve to strengthen his knowledge of, what many
consider to be a missing element in the study of graphic design, output
This experience also encouraged finding quick
and effective methods for producing, or even recreating, quality
imagery when supplied with less than ideal source material.
this time, Rosati spent personal time working in non-linear editing and
motion graphics for progressive and interlaced video. Custom wipes and
transitions were of particular interest, as well as developing
graphical overlays for more formal presentations. With the advent of
DVD, another opportunity arose for graphic artists to ply their trade,
particularly in the creation of menus. With this, Rosati found another
outlet to express creative visuals - the world of multimedia.
Later, formal illustration led to advertising illustration for the
real estate marketing industry where Rosati was able to combine his
illustration skills with his knowledge of full color print.Rosati
continues to be an active troubleshooter for designers and artists
using Adobe's; Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro at
