Tell us something about your background to introduce yourself.
Hi, there, I’m Victor Beazzo, also known as Artyst Tyrant, almost exclusively by myself, and I’m an art director and freelance web and print designer based in Daytona Beach, Florida. Originally from Pennsylvania, but I’ve lived all over the country. I love design, and more broadly, all art. My other hobbies include feeding my movie fanaticism, ‘80s cartoons, collecting Ghostbusters memorabilia, casual gaming, and most of all spending time with my lovely fiancee and 2-year-old son.
Where from do you get your inspiration?
From all over, I look at a lot of high-end design and try to draw inspiration while trying to interject some of my own personality. I try to draw influence from completely different mediums and phenomenon, stuff that nobody’s really thinking of when they’re designing, and use that stuff for to create a broader inspiration, and hopefully create something a little bit unique in a world where it’s all been done…twice.
Do you use a sketchbook for your drafts?
I typically do some layout doodles on the closest piece of paper I can find. By no means do I hold on to these however. By the time the project is complete, they usually look like they’ve been to hell and back.
What is your favored machine (Mac/PC)?
I work on Macs now (since college,) but I started on a PC and worked on them for years. I have no real issue with PCs, and I’m not an Apple snob, but I do love the way iMacs display color and the overall stability of the Mac operating system.
What new projects are you currently working on?
I think of my website as a constantly evolving creature, rather than a once-and-done, so I’ve got more big plans for that down the road. I also have a few freelance gigs I’m working-out the details on, but nothing to exciting or extraordinary at the moment I’m afraid.
