Makeem “Haz” Bartley, Illustrator
Passionate about design since high school, Makeem is no stranger to busting his brain; thinking of new ways to convey his (or anyone’s) vision into visual form in either Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign. He is known for his sharp simplicity, obsession with symmetry, a “cartoony” personality and a sincere smile to match.A minimalist at heart, Makeem understands the power of “less” and loves that the design world is evolving way from being “unnecessarily complicated”. He finds himself zoning in on logo/icon design, packaging and vectoring/illustration, but dares to push out of any box.
He does plenty of freelance work wherever and wherever available, and is 1/4th of the infamous BERMEMES (Bermuda Memes) team, constantly developing on an endless pool of ideas. Overall, he craves to be able to design his world around him on a daily basis, with or without a computer at hand.
