Interview With Celebrity Graphic Designer Marc Daddio
What is the most complex thing you’ve had to do?
- The most complex thing I’ve had to do is balance being a father and entrepreneur. Being a young father and business owner is a very complex and difficult task because I’ve had to learn how to sacrifice and prioritize in all areas of my everyday routine. Learning how to balance work, life, and family has not been easy and is still a journey I continue to navigate.
What is the most outstanding achievement you’ve ever accomplished?
-My most outstanding achievement I’ve ever had to accomplish is articulating how to incorporate my clients vision and my professional opinions when designing. I also achieve designing logos, clothing brands, and other graphics in a short period of time. My most outstanding achievement is always making sure I bring my clients vision to reality and making sure I always work until I have a 100% satisfied client.
What are your long-term goals?
-My long term goals are to become a well known and respected designer throughout the sport and entertainment industries. I want to inspire young men and woman like myself to pursue their dreams. I also want to bring light to art as being a career and not just a form of expression. Art being a career is sometimes misjudged and looked at as a hobby when it is just as much a career as any other job. I want to continue to bring ideas together into one vision and inspire others.
What is the biggest mistake you have made within your career?
-The biggest mistake I have made in my career is not always betting on myself. I have a very busy calendar and a lot of clients hard at work ready to see their vision come true. I not always believe that I can manage my workload, clients, and family but I have learned to balance. My best advice is to always believe in yourself and to never think you can’t do something.
What is one message that you would like to give the world?
- One message I would like to give the world is to always follow your dreams and what you are passionate about. There will always be people who think negatively and will tell you that you can’t do something. Turn that negativity into motivation and drive to chase your dreams even harder. There is nothing more powerful in this world than believing in yourself and that you can do whatever you put your mind to.
Where do you see yourself in the next ten years?
- In the next 10 years I see myself designing and creating on an even bigger platform. I want to be working with some of the worlds most elite clients. I want grow my business into a bigger platform. In the next 10 years I just want to be continuing to grow. Growth is something I take seriously because I believe there is always room for growth and improvement.
If you could take back one thing you did wrong, what would it be and why?
- If I could take back one thing I did wrong it would be not starting my company sooner. I never believed and always followed the social norm of that art is just expression and could never be a career. I got up and worked an everyday 9–5 for a short period of time before I realized I need to give myself a shot and follow my dreams. I didn’t fall to the social norms and did not want to settle for the everyday 9–5 job when I knew I had a talent. I stopped doubting myself and turned my artwork into not only a successful career but a platform to inspire others who are struggling to chase their dreams.
