Service Description

I help clients who have ideas to develop creative concepts from simple conversations and clients who already have concepts to create refined, functional and beautiful content.

I see design as a problem solving process that requires empathy, skill and discipline to deliver products that satisfy the specific needs of each client.

I have extensive design skills which I have developed over 8 years in a variety of fields though I specialize in imagery and graphic design. Having worked in video production, animation, education and brand development, I have an understanding of different workflows and industries that makes it easier for me to adapt easily to different client demands and offer advice and direction on issues outside my specialty.
