Service Description

If you're searching for one-on-one personalized attention, you've found it! I'm Kim, and I operate a home-based graphic design business specializing in print design, plus "front-end" website design and graphics. In addition to my day job as an in-house graphic designer, I decided to join Elance as a way to add a little excitement to my work week, portfolio and wallet.

I have over 20 years of professional experience in print design and illustration utilizing Macintosh hardware and software.

I use the latest industry-standard publishing and graphics software, including:
Adobe Creative Suite:
~Adobe Illustrator
~Adobe InDesign
~Adobe PhotoShop
~Adobe Dreamweaver
~Adobe Acrobat Pro

Web experience includes front-end website design, banner ads and custom email design using HTML, CSS, Drupal, Constant Contact and others. Examples available upon request.

Projects have included four-color catalogs and brochures, logos, price lists, packaging, manuals, and magazine ads. I have been responsible for copywriting and photography on many of my projects. I am familiar with AP style as well.

My talents also include traditional painting and drawing.

Review my portfolio and contact me if I can assist you with your design or illustration needs.
