I am a graphic designer living in the Greater Portland Area. I solve problems, visually. For more than a decade I have been working with clients to create, develop and promote their brands across a variety of media.
I believe creative adaptability has been the key to my success, so far. For years I tried to define "my style"–something I could leverage, promote and perfect. Then it dawned on me that if my goal is to meet the design needs of a broader market and be able to convincingly create design work across a wide range of styles, maybe not having a signature style, a "Blue Steel" so to speak, would prove best for me and ultimately my clients.
I enjoy both print and web design and I've been told I'm pretty good at both. I am also humble. Beautiful and humble.
My ego is a terrible designer.
Only make promises you can keep.
Creativity is not design.
Not everyone views websites the same way I do.
Most web design clients prefer results to stunning design.
Content-Driven Web Development will always be more successful than the Design-First Process.
