Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $35

I have 24 years experience working for a large architectural/engineering firm with 7,000 employees. My first 12 years were spent doing graphic design in the marketing department - my last 12 years were spent doing environmental graphic design (signage and wayfinding). In my free time the last few years I have also designed ski/snowboard topsheets on a freelance basis. Previous to my job at the a/e firm I was a graphic artist for a printing company (7 years).
