Service Description

CREATIVITY IS MY LIFE. Whether writing, drawing, or designing, there is nothing more intense than a sudden creative breakthrough. I strive to do something creative every day; it is just in my nature!

When working on a project, I devote 4-8 hours a day, every day, until the job is completed to your satisfaction. I don't believe in settling for less than my very best and your complete happiness with my work. Whether a logo, layout, website, or package design, you can be assured that I will not rest until the job is done and done right!

My services include, but are not limited to: logo design, corporate identity, layouts for various print media, packaging, typographic design, content creation and digital illustration. I utilize comprehensive research of the market, your company goals and needs, and your competitors to define and exploit a creative niche that will bring visibility and credibility to your message.

From the initial brief, to conceptual sketches, to drafting and revising, I am thorough, timely, and love to break out of the proverbial box. After all, if your company or design looks like everyone else's, how can you convince consumers that you're better?

I will be beside you at every step of the design process, to ensure that your message is delivered loud and clear to those you want to receive it, and that they respond POSTIVELY!
