Profile

I provide branding and design services for organizations looking to increase their brand awareness and raise their brand quality. My design background touches all aspects of organizational design including print, web, and application mediums. I take a holistic approach to branding and design to bring the big picture to light and achieve organizational goals.


Skills

Design

Listening to my clients and getting an understanding of their business objectives is the first thing I do before starting the design process. Clean and simple are my guiding design strategies.

Branding

I believe that having a strong brand identity is the foundation of visual communication. If the consumer gets the message loud and clear, the branding has done its job.

Communication

Open and honest communication is important to me. When multiple parties work together on a project, communication is a key factor in delivering a successful project. I am a team player and I greatly enjoy working with others.
