Service Description

Graphic Design work, focusing on print media projects, magazine layout, book cover design, logo design, illustration, typography design projects, posters, flyers, business cards, package design on occasion, point of purchase, and more.

Have worked in four color process printing for Nationwide Golf and Printing, Inc., now Print USA, Inc. for golf courses world wide doing score cards, magazine and catalog layouts, books and more on Ryobi presses. Worked for Williams Printing in Fayetteville, NC doing graphic design for print media and large format poster work for large format printers, plus vinyl sign layouts and more. Started my first agency job for The Big Picture, a small agency and landed their first large corporate contract with Conoco Oil, and did all types of projects for them for management to employee relations with graphic media from wall size photography work sent out to National Photographic Labs in Houston, Texas and more when I lived in Louisiana. Also do paintings for doctors offices dealing with subjects in the health industry.

Also really enjoy doing photo restoration work, had a lady client that cried when I restored a photo of her mother she had that was the only photo of her deceased mother she owned, so that kind of work is very rewarding for me to bring a memory that is very valuable back to life. Contact me any time if you need anything and will be happy to give you an estimate.
