    An "Outside of the Box" Creative Type

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 23

    Hi there. I've been a professional Graphic Designer for almost 17 years and I love what I do. Although I specialize in large format graphics (signage, banners, tradeshow graphics, vehicle wraps, etc.) I have designed everything from a small business card to huge banners hanging on the sides of buildings. I have years of experience dealing with and designing for nationally known corporations, many centering around tourism and attractions since I do live in the #1 tourist destination in America - Orlando, Florida. In addition to being a print design expert, I am currently going back to school for Web and Interactive Design because I decided that this internet thing is catching on and here to stay. I excel at Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, sign design software and I can use Corel Draw if forced to.

    Sr. Graphic Designer & Illustrator

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 22

    I have 30+ years of proven experience both as an artist and a designer. Highly versed in the Adobe Design Suite, I have designed for both conventional (offset) and ondemand (digital) printing, developing and producing direct mail pieces, magazine ads, sales presentation collateral, product packaging and/or labels, large format displays, silkscreen printing, as well as custom diecut items. I am also highly skilled in photo editing/retouching and creating technical illustrations. Successfully branding new or existing companies through logo design, logo redesigns (or creative facelifts) stationery packages and banner ads and website design takes precise expertise and years of experience, both of which I have as well. I have been a freelancer for most of my career 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 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!
