Geoff Lichy

Geoff Lichy is a graphic designer, photographer, writer, and musician from New York’s Hudson Valley. In 2011 Geoff graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Graphic Design, and has performed freelance design work since 2009. He currently works for an advertising company near NYC. He was also involved with the Penny4NASA campaign and Big Cat Rescue.

With classes in photography, experience as a high fashion model, and a DIY mindset, he learned how to use a camera. When he does freelance photography, it’s generally for album covers and animals, but isn’t limited by subject. Some examples are on lichydesign.com and Instagram.

As a musician Geoff has recorded and produced over 30 albums and EPs since 2006, contributing to over a dozen bands of various genres and playing multiple instruments. He started playing guitar and piano in 3rd grade, and was intermittently involved with chorus throughout grade school. Geoff picked up other instruments and techniques over the years. He’s a fan of improvisation and unorthodox techniques to achieve unique sounds. He’s composed soundtracks for short films and created samples for voice acting and narration.

From a young age he was interested in books and always read above his grade level. He funneled this passion into writing stories and creating characters of his own. In recent years he’s been honing this skill with short stories and freelance article-writing. Several novels are planned for the near future.

With a wide array of interests and talents, he’s a versatile force who can provide work or consultations for nearly any client. Geoff’s design specialty is providing services for new businesses and individuals, plus visual updates for established businesses. He focuses on branding and identity. This includes logo design, web design, business cards, graphics for social media, marketing consultations, and more. Geoff also holds certification in first aid, CPR/AED, scuba diving, TEFL/TESOL, cyber security, financial analysis, and radio operation.

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyse a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”
