SERVICES

CREATIVE DIRECTION

I rally creative teams around meeting project goals. I can find the talent that is perfect for completing the project objective and keep them motivated to produce their best work. At a table of executives, sales people, product developers or in the philanthropy sector, I provide insight on how strategies can be implemented visually.

BRAND DEVELOPMENT

Maybe your brand is just starting to bloom or needs help transitioning into a fresh look and feel? I can walk you through a brand creation process and help you discover your business’ strengths and competitive edge. I am also thrilled to run with the torch from where your brand has been to the next station in its evolution. I will organize your media presentation and guide your team to a more unified visual identity.

CAMPAIGN GRAPHICS

Strategizing and formulating new campaigns with a team. Materializing the goals, timeline and budget for campaign media. I love this whole process. My focus in the process is taking your strategy and verbiage and bringing it to life visually. Creating graphics that make the impact you are looking for.

WEB UI & CONTENT

Let’s take your brand’s vision and make it easy for your users to understand through an intuitive web interface. Responsive, simple, lively content that people can consume with any hand-held device or desktop browser is my jam.

PRINT LAYOUT

Print is not dead. Clients or donors love an elegantly designed take-away publication like a magazine, brochure, postcard or booklet. There is a unique strength in a tactile and beautifully designed print piece. I can bring your story to life with print layout.

EMAIL MARKETING

I live to find that target audience, empower them with ways to get involved and convert their interests to sales. I study the data, find good segmentation and experiment with A/B testing. I create branded email templates, easy for novice team members to use. Don’t struggle or get frustrated with building your email communications anymore.

PHOTOGRAPHY

What started as an interest has grown into an integral part of my designs. I have experience shooting a range of different subjects from the sidelines of NCAA basketball games to in-studio portraiture and architecture, as well as, event photography.

EVENT PROMOTION

Hosting events is an essential part of promoting brand awareness. I offer a full-service approach to event promotion including: web and invite design, RSVP and ticket sale interfaces, revving interest through social media posts and tying promotional look and feel through the signage, program media and stage design at the event. Experienced at working hand-in-hand with production, tech and catering vendors.
