Service Description

As I have received so many invites for services I do not offer I have to add this up front.

I specialize in design for PRINT. I do NOT provide W E B S E R V I C E S or any the following:
• W e b s i t e s
• P r o g r a m m i n g
• T - s h i r t s
• P o w e r p o i n t
• V i d e o
• F l a s h
• U s e r I n t e r f a c e

I also do not work in M i c r o s o f t W o r d or P u b i s h e r. If you want real graphic design you have to use real graphic design tools. That said, if you want to edit the file you will have to buy/use/learn Adobe Creative Suite, or return to me for future edits. Please let designers do what they do best - design.

I DO NOT hand over working files to ANY client for editing themselves. This has proven to be a disaster every single time. Please do not ask to edit my files. I DO supply archive files at the close of a job.

I am well versed in all the aspects of BUSINESS graphic design and production. My work for top-tier companies, and their continued support since 1995, is a good indicator of what you can expect from me. As most of my clients are based on the East Coast, I keep bi-coastal hours and location is not an obstacle. If you are comfortable working with an off-site designer you won't be sorry. I am just a phone call or email away. I am also accessible beyond regular office hours in order to provide exceptional customer service and support. In addition, my typical turnaround time on projects cannot be matched.
