ABOUT
 

Thank you for your interest in my graphic design work. My experience includes work in many different medias ~ corporate identity, book design, print collateral, branding, packaging, web design, consumer products, ads and more.

I especially enjoy designing books and websites for artists, with unobtrusive, clean layouts that keep the focus on the artwork. Images are carefully retouched, color corrected and organized for archival purposes. I am very familiar with working directly with the art world, galleries and museums.

I welcome interesting projects for all types of businesses so feel free to contact me to discuss your next visual communications project.

 

  CAPABILITIES

• Contract designer for 30+ years, with a foundation of design studio + ad agency work. Currently serve my own clientele, pursuing design solutions for all types of businesses.

• Welcome openness and interaction. Reliable and proactive. Communicate ideas and opinions clearly. Work long-distance with ease. Build ongoing, trusted relationships with clients.

• Focused on corporate identity ~ not just a logo, but all parts a company assembles to establish an appropriate, recognizable, and consistent character within all its communications. The voice of an organization is not merely its design, but also its culture. All communication materials integrate and uphold the identity. If you don't have one, I'd love to create a custom identity system for your business.

• Approach any project or media as a problem solver, with conceptual solutions coming directly out of what needs to be communicated. Client's message is embedded in every part of the visual communications to establish strong branding, resulting in increased recognition of the client's product or service.

• Projects strategized in stages: planning, research, concepts, refinements, production… along with budgets, estimates, time schedules, and all project management.

• Full-service, customized design services ~ yet a low overhead studio.
