Tell me about yourself. (Name, age, where you live and what you do)
YB: Brittany aka Young Brit or YB...Westchester (914). I am a Graphic Designer/Entrepreneur.
How long have you been graphic designing?
YB: I've been into art for as long as I can remember, but as far as graphic design I started when I was about 12 or 13 years old going into middle school. I started with the basic program Paint, and worked my way to other softwares like Corel PaintShop Pro, and eventually taught myself the ins and outs of Photoshop.
Do you remember your first design job? If so, what was it and who was it for?
YB: My first design job wasn't major, but it built credibility for me and opened my eyes to making my hobby a career job. When I got into graphic design I was into photography as well. Being that I was an athlete, I would take pictures at all the sporting events for my school. I started making sports collages for my friends, which led to teachers, coaches, and parents requesting personalized artwork to purchase. Just seeing my artwork all over Facebook and around the school kept me motivated.
You started putting out some dope shirts last year. Will you be putting out another collection soon?
YB: Yea of course, I held back on the shirts for a while now to perfect my craft. As a graphic designer its easy to branch off into other lanes of design, but I still wanted to remain focused on what I'm known for. So everything is coming along together now and I'm still going to sell the original You Know You Broke shirts, along with new styles of "Cant Compete Don't Compare"... This year's collection is strictly focused on simple, but motivational words or quotes that you hear in today's music that will keep you, as they say "money hungry"...So the new collection is definitely something to look forward too.
How would you describe your personal style?
YB: My personal style is comfortable, edgy, and just all around ME. I tend to force myself to look like that average girl in shoes, and heels.... but I'm just a simple tomboy that will cut up a pair of pants throw on a jersey, and give it some sex appeal. If you know ME, I've always been that sporty chick showing off her six pack lol.
Complete this sentence. "My outfit/look isn't complete without my ....".
YB: My outfit/look isn't complete without my ... Hat. I'm crazy over hats. Buckets, snapbacks, beanies.. I just love hats.
Out of all of your sneakers which ones do you cherish the most?
YB: I cherish my Cherrywood 16's the most. I was 16 years old when I bought them for my 16th Birthday. I spent ALOT of money for those sneakers because they were originally released in 2006. It was one of my first big purchases that I still have today.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
YB: In 5 years I see myself still creating like I am today. Who knows what I may have up my sleeve 5 years from now. Just know it will be GREAT, and it won't stop there!
