Graphic Designer - Printing Specialist
Last active: 1 day ago
Creative, Experienced, Real World Graphic Design, Typography and Copywriting.
Have you ever hired a graphic designer, only to have them come up with something so elaborate that you couldn't afford to print it?
That is because they didn't understand the printing process or the capabilities and limitations of the equipment that you planned to produce it on. That is where I come in. I have spent my career in graphic design and possess a strong printing background. Don't get me wrong, I love to design the tricked out invitation or presentation with foil and embossing and spot varnishes and die cutting and gluing and lots of pantone and metallic inks - only problem, it is not in most budgets.
Graphic design is about ideas, but it is also about details. I like to think that I am good at both. The greatest idea can fall flat if it is not properly executed - typography, spelling, use of photography, consistent branding... all are important to a successful project.
As a designer, I had to learn that not every job is a masterpiece, that time is money and clients need to work within deadlines and cost constraints. So I learned to take my ego out of the job and adapt to customer needs. The first step in every job is to determine what it is that you need and then to create a compelling design that fits your parameters.
I have spent many years in the advertising and printing fields. Both of these businesses gave me the opportunity to work with people in all types of industries - from small business to huge corporations, retail to manufacturing, service businesses to restaurants, tradesmen to professionals - I have designed for them all.
So what are you looking for? Brochures, Flyers, Catalogs, Magazines, Books, Letterheads, Envelopes, Business Cards, Business Forms, Menus, Table Tents, Advertisements, Invitations, Door Knob Hangers, Packaging, Labels, Presentations, Annual Reports, Logo Design, Corporate Identity Packages - if it ends up as ink on paper I have done it and would be happy to create something for you - on time and on budget.
