Cade Buckus

Cade Buckus

Graphic Designer and Pixel Wizard

Cade graduated from The University of Akron with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. He strongly enjoys working with illustration, typography, branding/logos, and UIX layout. Not only is he a skilled digital artist but an amazing traditional artist as well. Some clients are truly lucky to have hand drawn artwork found nowhere else included in the layout of their site where applicable. When not at work his beard is actively continuing design work behind the scenes. We at A3S believe the beard is one of his many sources of creative inspiration.
