May I share about my life with Christ...the beginning of it all.
The real founders of OurVision are God, our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. As Paul was a tentmaker, so am I (Randy Williams) seeking. When I hit rock bottom trying by my talents to become someone great. At 24, Christ spoke to me (several times), I heard it and I received it. There were miracles to help me believe, the rest was practical. Clearly through His Word. I was a professional industrial designer at the time in my young career. Unknowledgeable about being a real designer for people. I accepted His call and I asked Him to teach me His Word. He confirmed it through His churches. The ability to his, the eagerness and desire for fellowship, the power to overcome what I couldn't. Myself. I committed to giving Him back all the gifts He gave me and committed to serve for the rest of my life. The doors opened for me to learn his more of life and teach in his church art to students (4th to 12 grade.) While God was using everything to teach me. All my relationships he gave me since birth. Since, 2004, I have tried to diligently serve for free in His house.
OurVision is an avenue to maintain my financial responsibilities for my family and me. However, my lifetime commitment is to the Church and serving (Freely you have received; freely give. Matt 10:8)
As my passionate calling to faith-based media. I have accomplished 400+ Christian artworks that have been internationally viewed and or purchased. They are on OurVision for free. Purchasable if a third party needs to be involved in printing the artwork. That has been the real power of God.
I can testify that every member of my family has, in some way, powerfully helped me develop, shine brightly, and serve with devotion. They are all diamonds in whom light can brilliantly shine through. Our website contains certain departments/services that have been named after my family: (My grandmother, grandfather, mother, father, siblings, family, and my son.) They are all due a place in my history as the team given to me to do such work in the sight of God.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating creatively on a wide array of projects for an extensive roster of clients (Domestic and International.)

From crafting designs for luxury jewelry lines to developing marketing campaigns for fitness equipment brands and retail giants, I’ve had the opportunity to contribute to diverse industries and organizations. Whether it’s working with household names like Macy’s and Walmart or partnering with smaller businesses and community organizations, I’ve consistently delivered innovative solutions tailored to meet each client’s unique needs and objectives. My portfolio spans a breadth of projects, ranging from retail showcases and promotional materials to branding initiatives and digital campaigns. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have collaborated with such esteemed clients and look forward to continuing to create impactful work in the future. For students aspiring to de in design, I have posted work from the actual sales pages. With respect to the disclosure agreements and being a staff designer for much of the work I have had the opportunity to develop.
