Overview

I'm fortunate enough to have over 20 years of experience in art direction, design, illustration and painting, both on the agency side and the client side.

A lot has changed in the marketing communications and advertising industry during those years, but one thing hasn't changed. There's still a vast difference between good, effective advertising and weak, expensive advertising. I use the word expensive because any time you spend money on weak advertising, no matter how small the amount, it's expensive because it gains you nothing....

Service Description

While Bergman Creative was founded in 1999, I have always freelanced, even while employed. Prior to my marriage in 1999, I operated under the name of Booth Creative.
I have worked with clients and their marketing communications needs all my adult life and have found that when I attempt to do anything else, I'm always drawn back to what I love and do best.
Currently, I'm employed outside this industry, but continue to do freelance work and recently have begun painting again. I work in watercolor and I'm presently working on designing a line of quilting fabric.

You can expect & you will receive the following:
- Exceptional service and creative product.
- Timely response to all your communications and turnaround on each level of your projects.
- Daily or Weekly updates of the status of your projects.
