Overview

Hello!

I provide my clients with gorgeous art, thoughtful branding, and brilliant illustration, as well as amazing communication and personalized service.

I'm a US-based artist and graphic designer, as well as a US Navy veteran. I'm not just another "bid on everything" low-balling clipart factory. I have extensive professional experience, tutelage, and education in the arts, as well as amazing customer service skills. I am able to keep deadlines and follow directions. I do not quit until my client is 100% satisfied.

Service Description

My services include:

Custom logo creation

Beginning with a client questionnaire and market research, I draft several concepts. Once one basic idea is selected, I use color, symbology, and creativity to provide my client with a logo set. This includes break aways, color variations, and a branding rule PDF.

Existing logo grooming

I take a client's existing logo and polish it up using market research and either existing branding rules or by creating a more appropriate color scheme. Includes break aways, color variations, and a branding rule PDF.

Business card and mockup

Using client's personal monogram/logo/photo, I open a discussion using a client questionnaire regarding style, feel, and desired market. With this information in hand, I build several concepts, from which the client chooses one or a combination thereof. I then complete the art and provide the client with editable and print-ready files.

Custom letterhead/stationary templates

I will artfully arrange logos along with client vitals in a professional and appealing set of PDF, Word, or DOC files with which they can use to create correspondences. Service includes several concepts and final editable files in choice of format.

CD/LP/Book/E-book covers

By using either client-provided art or by creating 100% from-scratch artwork, I design aesthetically pleasing covers for many applications. Final artwork is laid out for either print or web with all necessary bleed and crop marks.
