Overview

Professional, creative, and responsive designer ready to help with your design needs. I have years of experience with an emphasis on designing for print. I offer imaginative solutions and creativity on the fly. I love taking a mess of copy, images and a client's vision and bringing it all together in eye-catching design. I'm detail-oriented and can also help with copywriting and editing.

Service Description

Logos, posters, magazines, ads and annual reports; artwork for patches and pins and other promotional items. I did the layout and design of a meeting planner guide for the local CVB for 5 years.

I have experience designing large trade show signs, banners and entrance structures, as well as expo directories and special event programs and tickets.

I enjoy working with smaller businesses and non-profits, where my approach to "accessible graphic design" is most meaningful, though I'm ready and willing to tackle anything with anyone.

I'm based in the Pikes Peak region of Colorado. Received an Addy Merit Award in 1997 for logo and brochure design.
