    Richard Cheney

    writer, editor, graphic designer, voice talent

    United States - Portfolio: 74

    My strength is the ability to write and edit, illustrate or vocally resonate your story. My approach is simple. Writing, graphics, package design or voice-over production define who you are and how your story will affect other people. Every written word, graphic element, package design or vocal offering has strength to resonate meaning and character. I write and edit with clarity, illustrate with refined color and shape, package with economy and strength and speak with a deep, resonate voice of persuasion and reason. These are the basics of communication, the continuous thread of shared experience. With forty years of experience, my design mastery is simple. With simplicity, everything is important.
