“Practice safe design. Use a concept.” — Petrula Vrontikis
Good design is more than just a pretty picture. It starts with a concept. It considers who you are and what your message is, and how to best get this message across, clearly, to your desired audience.
Every project I work on is unique, and is treated as such. No cookie cutters will be used in the creation of your project.
What do I design? Well…
Logos. Business cards. Letterhead. Postcards. Promo kits. Brochures. Billboards. Magazine and newspaper ads. Custom playing cards. Magic props and packaging. CD and DVD packaging. Promotional items. T-shirts. Posters. Flyers. Banners. Books. Etc.
“Style is a magic wand, and turns everything to gold that it touches.” — Logan Pearsall Smith
Each site I build is custom designed, hand-coded, valid xhtml and css. From scratch. No templates. Ever.
Focus on usability and accessibility means that your website will load quickly, be search engine friendly, easy to navigate, and cross-browser compatible.
“Advertising is fundamentally persuasion, and persuasion happens to be not a science, but an art.” — William Bernback
Content is just as important as style. If needed, I will write copy for your project, meshing the style and mood of the writing with the feel of the design.
If you’d like to provide me with your own copy, thats fine, too. I will proofread and edit it for typographical, spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. I can’t help it. It’s what I do.
I work with multiple print vendors who specialize in different kinds of printing, from business cards to billboards, and just about anything else you can think of. Several of the vendors I work with offer eco-friendly printing solutions, including recycled paper, soy and vegetable-based inks, and Zero VOC solvents. If you’re concerned about the environment, let me know and Ill do my best to make your print job earth friendly.
In-house services include high quality inkjet prints, black and white and color laser printing, and lamination.
