Odes is a multi-disciplinary designer and the owner of AlmostStudios. He is a huge believer in honest design and human design — "Honesty cuts through the bullshit, and gives you something real, gives you something that resonates within you that you can feel."
He began his career spending his afternoons with Adobe Photoshop tutorials, which paid off when he received his first design job. At age 13, he got a job doing brand work for a hair product company, Hairballers. After excessive doodling through all of his college classes, he thought to himself. "Why am I taking political sciences classes when I could be making something?" And immediately switched his major to visual communication. Turns out it was the best choice he ever made, and he hasn't stopped making things since.
