Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $10

My approach to design is simple: make sure that it is effective enough to appeal to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or ethnic background. I pride myself on understanding and executing this principle in my work.

I blend classic, simple, and elegant design elements into my work to appeal to a broad range of people while still maintaining modernist aesthetics. I think you'll find that my work is very clean and professional while also creatively free-flowing.

The client is the most important person to me, and I handle all of my projects...

Service Description

My name is Blake Thomas, and I have been a designer for nearly ten years, starting out from humble beginnings designing fake CD covers in my bedroom, to learning the basics of Photoshop in high school, to learning the ins and outs of design and media in college.

In addition to attending a 2-year Multimedia Graphics technical program while I was also taking my regular classes in high school, I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design as well as Indiana University for a BFA. I studied a wide range of design topics, ranging from printmaking to logo design to typography to web design.

I have worked with many different clients in the past, mostly locally-owned businesses in my hometown of Louisville, KY, as well as more established businesses and private clients. I have also worked with non-profit organizations.

I handle clients with the utmost care and I always have the client in mind, because you the client are the most important person. I am designing for YOU.
