About Me

 

I am a self-employed graphic designer, specializing in the fields of print design, branding, corporate identity (logo) design, mobile development and web design. A majority of my time is spent designing and implementing marketing promotions for businesses such as brochures, posters, fliers, packaging, logos, letterhead, business cards, websites and more.

 

I began in the print industry in the early 1990's doing marketing material for National Company's like Ace Hardware, Dean's Foods, Cotter and Company along with a number of smaller companies around the city of Chicago.  I got into the agency lifestyle during the late 90's in downtown Chicago working with and learning from some great talent in the business. It was a privilege to work with some of the greatest brands in health & wellness... Abbott Laboratories, Lilly and Company, Searle Pharmaceuticals, just to name a few. The group I worked with at the time won a number of Global and Web Ad News Awards. It was a great time in advertising.

 

After the events of 9/11, the field changed drastically and pushed me into freelancing where I was able to spread my wings and work with a number of great companies. Clients I worked with included McDonald's, Department of Education and the "No Child Left Behind" advancement, Chicago Tribune, Bosch, Vaughan and Bushnell & the Corporate Headquarters of the YMCA of the USA.

 

Based outside of Chicago, I give my clients the most superior and cost efficient solutions in this vastly competitive market. I enjoy working in the areas of print design (ie. letterhead, business cards, posters, CD covers, book covers, etc.), mobile development, corporate identity design, branding, logo design, web design, and also dwell into many other areas such as Illustration drawing and photography.

 

I believe that quality is the one article of trade which cannot be compromised and this is clearly seen in my work, giving my clients the satisfaction they deserve. Don’t just take my word for it, read some of my client testimonials.
