I’m Sean-Paul and I run S-Ranked Design Armada. I’m the Founder, Creative Director, Production Artist, and everything else for this small studio. You’ll usually see (or read) me refer to it as just S-Ranked for short. This is the home for all of my professional creative endeavors. While I’m an expert in all things vector, that doesn’t mean that I won’t make a motion graphics piece or a 3D render, or something else outside of what you would expect from a very small visual design studio.
If you’re wondering about where the name S-Ranked Design Armada came from, then I implore you to keep reading as all sham be revealed.
S-Ranked refers to an interesting phenomena that I had noticed while playing video games and watching Japanese animation. During his watching/gaming sessions that there was a theme of rank that was present in many titles. Either the player was assigned a rank based on their performance or some form of character(s) in a show had a rank that showed how well they did a task. What I noticed was that while ranks always went from F to A, like grades in school, there was always a rank higher than A. Generally speaking, I found that rank was “S”. Reserved for the elite; a mark that denotes epic badassery.
While the Design part of the name is self explanatory, the Armada might not. One of the dreams I have is to create an umbrella where other similarly amazing and complementary creatives could help each other and build great working relationships. They would be like a loose Armada of ships sailing towards being the best ever. It might sound like a bit farfetched, but try to imagine explaining an iPhone to someone from the 80’s.
Now that I’ve explained the name, let’s talk about the work I’ve done. I have worked for both a host of well known companies such as PINK, Scholastic Inc, Foot Locker, and Adidas. I have also worked with more local and start-ups than I can remember. He has worked in a variety of mediums like graphic design, web design, illustration, and motion graphics. I can create just about anything for both print and web.
Now we’re going to change gears. This is where our paths can go beyond just crossing and actually become entwined.
