Forrest Huu Ta is a
graphic designer.

Currently, I am a junior working towards a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art with an Emphasis in Graphic Design at California State University, Long Beach. I was born and raised in San Diego and am currently based in Orange County, California.

My method of practice is a hybrid of analog and digital approaches. I am visually driven by culture, art, and design. Constantly practicing new ways to approach design, I am always determined to expand my knowledge of various mediums, machinery, and programs. There is a lot of dedication put into my craft. Both art and design have been strong interests of mine since my early childhood.

When I am not designing, I am reading books, listening to podcasts, going for long walks, and drawing in my sketch book.

Previously, I worked as a Graphic Design Intern at San Diego Museum of Man. I created signage and illustrated a series of postcards that are now sold in the museum’s gift shop. I also have an Associate of Arts in Art/Visual Studies from San Diego Miramar College and an Associate of Arts in Graphic Design from the San Diego City College.
