I’ve been a designer my whole adult life.
It’s how I see the world. I help shape visual mood, which in turn helps the clarity of messages. Messages of all kinds and sizes. Using technologies old and new.
Since 1981, I’ve done this as either a member of a staff, or a temp agency. That changed, as many things did, in 2008.
All that time, I watched as account executives who worked with me found clients and met their needs. I watched with both respect for that skill, and relief that I didn’t have their responsibility.
Now, I’m on my own, learning that skill and assuming that responsibility quickly.
And yet, aren’t there some advantages of cubicle life that can be brought online?
Let’s make me a department in the imaginary floorplan of your virtual company.
You already have it for accounting, for coding, for office management.
The Internet is all about connection. My studio hours can be yours, a call away. I can be available for conversations with your clients. I can understand your intentions as deeply as if I were physically in the room with them, and you. My business style is adaptable to yours.
So much of the task is done once we can figure out what you need, or even what it’s called. Once we establish that, I’m on my way to hunt it down, or just do it myself. In either case, the result will meet both your criteria and my own.
My work ranges from old techniques to new. I am as at home with HTML, CSS and WordPress and Adobe creative apps, as I am with oil painting, calligraphy and woodcarving.
Most entries in this blog are samples of my work, with a description of the process of creation. The images in each entry sometimes form a slideshow, either of the evolution of the project, or in the case of a campaign, associated items. I hope it’s representative of my capabilities. If there’s something you don’t see here, let me know!
