Photo of Me

Welcome to my website. I am William Cassar the Graphic Artist, Senior Designer, Print Production Manager & Father of Dragons, at least it seems that way at meal time. I studied Visual Communications at Farmingdale State University, in New York. While there I crafted my skills in Art, Design & Awesomeness. During my time in college I had the opportunity to study art history abroad. Traveling to France, Belgium, Holland, Italy & Greece, seeing and studying the great masters works as they hang in galleries or churches all over Europe. Being immersed in different cultures helped me become the person I am today. I've been working as a Designer for 15 years. Currently I work for US Nonwovens in the Commack NY office, we make wipes and liquids for Home & Personal Care products. We work on many different projects in a fast-paced high energy enviroment, Ads, Brochures, Packaging, Corporate Assests, Pre-Press Project Managment, Mock-Ups, Photography & Product Ideation.
