ALL ABOUt YOU

clarity

Even if my clients have been unable to communicate exactly the kind of design they want up front, I have been consistently able to absorb and understand the essence of their project and   bring out the right imagery to match their ideas. This I have found to be a profound gift in being of service to many inspiring projects.

 

“Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge.”
Paul Rand

What I Offer

b

LITERATURE

Including online communications, MailChimp campaigns and print-based media. I design, photograph and conceive high profile corporate literature, advertisements and newsletters for print and online communications. I will take a project from concept to delivery within your deadlines. My abilities in quality graphic design can lead to an ideal partnership for all of your print and online communications.

EXHIBITIONS

Exhibitions remain one of the most valuable means of meeting new customers and staying in touch with existing clients. The power of personal communication in your exhibition space is conducive to doing good business. I understand the image and artwork requirements for large format outputs. Large format prints can be mounted on a variety of substrates for internal or external venues, or I can supply a range of modular systems to
suit the event.

BRANDING

I create meaningful and memorable identities for business and consumer brands. Does your company or product need a fresh new look without the cost of changing your logo? Then let me create a new house style that complements your existing logo. Your new look can then run through all media and completely overhaul your marketing tool kit, from packaging to website development, to literature, to exhibition graphics and vehicle wraps.

 

Illustration

I started off with my Mac on a table in my living room. Many times on deadline with my 2 year old son standing next to me with his bottle. And my youngest son on my back in a backpack sleeping as I tried to finish a concept drawing. My illustration and fine art skills are of my favorite talents.

web design

I can design and produce your website.
It’s vital your website creates a good first impression by not only reflecting your company brand but by also carefully leading the visitor around the site with intuitive navigation, on-page functionality and great content that will help the entire user experience. Make your website the best salesman you’ve ever employed at a fraction of the cost! Great ideas start with great conversations.

animation

I started out as an illustrator which
eventually led me to becoming a
multi-disciplinary designer working in graphic design, web design, branding, and icon design. During my 20+ year career, I loved creating beautiful and thoughtful designs and graphics that communicate a company’s needs
and purpose. After Effects is an awesome tool
I have added to my capabilities.

Top Skills

Creative

Creative without strategy is called ‘art.’ Creative with strategy
is called ‘advertising’.

Visualize

Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it.

Interpret

Everyone reads the same words but has a very clear picture of their own.

Inspire

Inspiration comes from everywhere. It is an interior process for me.
