Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $33

I started my career as an art director/designer over 10 years ago and have worked across several disciplines over the years including magazines, catalogs, web UX design, logo and identity, screen printing, and most recently, digital publishing. I've worked in-house and on the agency side of things and as such, I have an excellent working knowledge of how to work on both sides of that coin.

Service Description

As an art director and designer for a creative firm, magazines and an apparel manufacturer I've established myself as an innovative and reliable resource with a wealth of knowledge and experience across a variety of design disciplines. But I'm not only an art director—aside from establishing the design of a project, I do production work and release all jobs to press efficiently and up to industry standards.

Although I have significant experience in producing large run projects, I also love working on a smaller scale. Branding and personal identity systems, as well as event or wedding invitations are well within my scope of interest and ability. I enjoy working with clients to develop personal and meaningful graphic representations of each unique circumstance and individual.
