Gerald Jimenez is a Dominican born designer. He currently designs the day away for clients such as Cadillac, HUMMER, and Product (RED) and spends his nights experimenting with confetti, lighting + a Handycam. He wants an Edirol V4 for his birthday. His motion graphics work have lived on video billboards in Times Square to portable projector screens at his local church.

DON DAYS

I am currently the Creative Services Editor/Graphic Artist  for Fox 25 in Boston.  On a day to day basis, Iam expected to turn out a high volume of work without sacrificing quality. I have learned to work fast and meet a lot of crazy deadlines, but can you really rush art? That is what intrigued me most about this competition. The balance of how fast your fingers can push the buttons vs. how quickly your brain can muster some decent ideas and original concepts.  Should be fun....
