Clients and colleagues have often said "Just work your magic". Really though, it boils down to a strong work ethic, loving the creative process, and never compromising on quality.
And no, I don't always walk around with a top hat, cane and dove, but I'll do anything to help tell a story. :-)

Working his "magic" since 1993
For over two decades Dominic J. Venticinque has produced captivating visuals for clients as diverse as Universal Records, Commerce Bank, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, and the National Institutes of Health. He was a featured artist by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, a featured designer in the Pantone Canvas Gallery, and has been spotlighted in several industry publications. His success is due in large part to his history.
In 1990 Dominic began college excelling in the study of architecture, however he quickly realized the creative limitations the field presented. Seeking broader creative boundaries, he switched his major to graphic design, and has never looked back.
Throughout the 1990's Dominic was a standout designer at each of the companies for which he worked, while simultaneously freelancing for a wide range of clients.
In 1999 Medical Communications Media (MCM) hired Dominic as Senior Designer. His creative genius and exemplary work ethic were so well received by colleagues and clients alike, he was quickly promoted to Art Director.
During his 13-year tenure at MCM, Dominic was solely responsible for the visual development of over 30 educational brands per year for major pharmaceutical companies, medical associations, and government agencies. All the while, he continued to take on selected freelance projects outside of the healthcare industry.
In 2012 Dominic decided to become a full-time, independent designer, and CONJURE DESIGNS (formerly DJV Creative) was born.
Dominic is a visionary, who has been conjuring truly unique design solutions for well over twenty years. He thrives on creative challenges, and possesses an insatiable desire to deliver inspired end-products that WOW. The work speaks for itself—conceptual, targeted, and highly polished. Craftsmanship and great attention to detail lay at the foundation of Dominic's success.
