FREELANCE GRAPHIC DESIGNER
CREATIVE DIRECTOR
ENGINEERING GRAPHIC DESIGN AND MARKETING
PUBLISHED AUTHOR

No matter what industry or sector you’re in, your mission, potential, and your current and future client relationships are all shaped by visual messaging. Bringing messages alive through visual design takes experience, creativity, and a unique set of digital and communicative skills. Whether you’re rebranding, starting an ad campaign, or interested in finding ways to cultivate your client base, the visual presentation of your organization’s messages will be the catalyst for your success.

With more than 17 years of experience as a graphic designer and creative thinker, I partner with engineering firms and other organizations of all sizes and sectors on developing powerful marketing essentials that attract more prospects, solidify brand reputation, and connect effectively with clients. Click here to view some of my work.

On a typical day, I might be:

- Meeting with executives and marketing directors to craft messaging from concept to implementation

- Working with in-house marketing directors and graphic designers on existing projects or on developing new campaigns

- Coordinating with my partners—including video editors, web designers, and writers—on projects such as company-facing tutorial videos and customer-facing catalogs, brochures, ads, signage, and logos.

- My goal is to be the best creative partner I can be for my clients and colleagues. As a versatile visual-design expert, I’m valuable to my clients in many ways:

- Are you looking for a reliable designer to take a project from concept to print working independently or with your in-house marketing team?

- Are you connected to a graphic designer who can step in to help out with overflow projects when your in-house team needs a hand?

- Do you need a visual-communications team leader who partners with other creative professionals to take your projects from start to finish?

I’m here to be a partner in your visual-communications process. Contact me today at 913-620-8432.

So Now You're A Graphic Designer Book So Now You're A Graphic Designer Book
I decided to rescue the world from unwilling and misled graphic design title holders by publishing my first book So Now You’re A Graphic Designer for the graphically challenged associates who are suddenly expected to be graphic designers. This is a book for those who have been told they are now responsible for the company’s marketing materials, brochures and other communications and are concerned because they don’t know what they need to know to do the job at the level that’s expected. It’s also for those of you who know just enough to be dangerous. AVAILABLE ON AMAZON NOW - https://www.amazon.com/So-Now-Youre-Graphic-Designer/dp/1532308418?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0
