Design

web | print | illustration | pattern design

I’ve worked as a professional graphic designer for over 20 years. With any design project, I listen to you. We look at marketing materials you like AND don’t like. We pin down with words what you want your company image to say so I can translate it into a visual design. I’ve created everything from logos to billboards, so no project is too small or too large.

I was lucky enough to get into web design and programming just as the internet was really getting started. I’ve seen the web grow from simple, content-based sites, to flash sites with intro animations, and now on to sites that rearrange themselves and change based on the device you’re using. It’s been an amazing journey and a lot to learn and keep up with. It’s the learning new things aspect that keeps me going.

My goal is to provide you with branding elements that will serve you for years to come, and marketing materials that help your business reach its goals.

Let’s get started!

Working with me is pretty straightforward. And I have a network of professionals that can help with a marketing plan, media buying, photography, copywriting, social media and more. 

  • Step 1

    Email is the best way to start a conversation about your project. You can use my form below to get started. Then we can decide if we need to meet in person (if you’re local) or have a phone conversation. For some projects, email works just fine.

  • Step 2

    By email, phone, or in person meeting we’ll define the general scope of your project. Once I know what you’re looking for then I can give you a project estimate and an initial payment price for going more deeply into your project requirements.

  • Step 3

    Once the initial payment is made, we’ll dive deeper into your project requirements. We’ll define all the variables and establish all the deliverable. Then I’ll give you written proposal and contract. Payment terms are defined in the contract on a per project basis, but in general you can expect a partial payment due upfront and the remainder due at the end of the project. Payment plans are also an option.

  • Step 4

    Depending on your project, I’ll start with initial sketches by hand or designs on the computer. With most projects you’ll get a few designs to pick from or we’ll combine pieces to create a final design you love.

  • Step 5

    Once the initial design is approved, I then apply that look to all the pieces on our project list. For websites, I start programming your site. I keep you involved in the process via email and with website you can login and see your site as it’s being built.

  • Step 6

    Everything’s approved! That means its time to launch your site and get your print pieces printed. I can handle the printing for you or hand the files off to you so you can take them to your favorite print shop. At this point you’ll be billed for the remainder of your project.

  • Step 7

    We’ve completed our tasks, but hopefully this is just the beginning. I’m here for website training and maintenance, additional print projects, and questions.
