Service Description

I can create any print communications piece from conception through printer-ready files. This can include copy writing and editing as well as design and production, also image selection and manipulation: I am not an illustrator but will work with provided illustrations (and modify digital artwork if needed), and I can work with provided photographs or research stock photography, again manipulating images as needed. I work primarily in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, and can create simple designs or modify existing artwork in Illustrator.
