    Sr. Graphic Designer & Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 16 hours ago - Tests: 10 - Portfolio: 22

    Creativity has been a huge part of my life since I can remember, and so I took a path where I can keep it in my work life as well as personal life. 25+ years proven experience both as an artist and as a designer. Highly versed in the Adobe Design Suite. Much experience designing for both conventional (offset) and ondemand (digital) printing developing direct mail pieces, magazine ads, product packaging/labels, large format graphics, silkscreen, custom diecut items, sales presentation collateral, photo editing/retouching and technical illustrations. Precise expertise in creating branding for new or existing companies through logo design, logo redesigns (or creative facelifts) stationery packages and banner ads and website design (graphics only) among other things. No hype, no baloney - I have helped a wide array of clients with a variety of projects and have a rich technical background in many methods of production. I have been a freelancer for most of my career (I enjoy the freedom of it) and have effectively interfaced with highly successful people on many levels: corporate, non-profit, small business, entreprenuers, publishing, and marketing both in B2B and B2C! I do believe in fair compensation, but also firmly believe in you getting your money's worth. (I like to take the "mystery" out of designing and will take time to explain the process to you so you can be as involved as much or as little you would like to be.) Let's see what we can create together!
