Arts and culture, that's my world! I've always loved the arts, and I've been creating and promoting arts-related projects since I was a pre-teen. In my early years, I honed my design skills with projects like self-published magazines, art portfolio websites, and posters for bands or art shows that my friends and I were in.
Now, as a professional graphic designer, I work primarily with clients in the arts-and-culture realm, because that's what I love. It makes me happy to help other creative people connect with their fans and clients.
I also stay busy with plenty of my own projects. I'm currently in the final stages of revising my first novel, and I also write and illustrate a tiny booklet of tiny stories called Pinch.
why work with me on your design project
You've got something great to promote, and the artistic vision of your project has to come through in your promotional materials – I know because I've been there, promoting my own projects. I take the time to understand your vision so that what I do melds perfectly with what you do. You get to see rough drafts of your design and request revisions, so you can be sure you're getting the perfect design for you.
I also make the design process as easy as possible, because I know you've already got a full plate. I'm easy to reach and always stick with the timeline we set out together. You'll never face the frustration of not knowing what's happening with your design, because we stay connected throughout the process. It's easy!
my approach to web design
Ahh, the web. It can be a messy place – there are so many unique technical concerns and things that can go wrong. But since I've been making websites since the 90s, I know how to make it all work. (I'm not just an artist – I'm also a computer nerd. Surprise!)
I bug-check websites extensively to make sure that they work on all major browsers and computer platforms (Ever been to a site that just didn't work? Not enough bug checking!)
I also follow the "three-click rule" to keep sites user-friendly – if you can't find what you want within three clicks, it's not user-friendly.
And last but not least, I hand-write my custom-coded websites in impeccable code. Google loves this! I've gotten several of my clients to the first page of Google search results. Victory!
I'm trained not only in art and design but also in...
- Business and marketing
- Web coding
- Search engine optimization
Phew! This means I have a lot of skills at your disposal, which helps your project turn out splendidly.
