I've been a full-time, freelance graphic designer and production artist since 2011. I took a circuitous route to my current profession: By way of 12 years as a marketing consultant in San Diego. I worked for a little tiny agency and learned how to do just about everything having to do with marketing, and now I use that knowledge to help my clients.
Graphic Design for Printing
My primary specialty as a graphic designer is creating pieces for printing. Clients have hired me for everything from brochures and business plans to posters and restaurant menus to logos and business cards.
A large part of my business is as a production artist where I quickly and cost-effectively build projects for clients that meet the brand standards established by talented design firms. My clients appreciate being able to work with me directly, and my ability to prioritize and work on multiple projects at a time.
Web Design & Online Projects
I have successfully designed and built websites for bloggers, charities and businesses. Working with the WordPress platform, I can take you from scratch to a complete blog or website at a reasonable rate.
In addition to WordPress web site design, I have set up e-commerce sites on the Shopify platform and created email newsletters on a variety of platforms, including Constant Contact, Bronto, MailChimp, Mad Mimi and Navis Reach.
Additional Key Skills
Typography: I have an advanced understanding of laying out type.
Print Buying: For over a decade, supervising digital and offset printing was a huge part of my job, including approval of soft proofs and press checks. I am happy to help you get your project produced at the best quality for the best price.
Photography: I’ve been shooting as a hobby for over 20 years and occasionally come in handy for clients. I also have coordinated multi-day photo shoots with very talented professional photographers, including initial scouting, styling, art direction and retouching.
Copywriting: Another skill from my days as a marketing consultant where I served as primary copywriter for direct mail, advertising, brochures and websites for three resorts and nine golf courses.
