I was fortunate to have cut my teeth in the pre-computer era, back when design was a more involved, more hands-on craft. Great emphasis was put on concept development, customer service, and the production of the finished piece was an art in itself.
Fast-forward to 2019. Even with the latest tools and techology at my disposal, I still hold true to the same values I was taught back then. I still kern headlines. I still work out ideas on paper before turning to the computer. I still check and double-check work before it leaves the studio. Call it my tribute to the ways things used to be: good work, done right.
After nearly 30 years in the business, I've worn just about every "hat" imaginable. I've done contract work for major corporations, collaborated with agencies on marketing campaigns, created packaging lining the shelves in big box stores, designed a mountain of print collateral, and helped with international product launches. I've created, produced, written, illustrated, animated, programmed, and retouched. And I enjoy it all—from high creative to mundane production—because to me, it's all art.
The art of design.
