    Patt was so great to work with. This logo means so much to me as it is for a nonprofit I am starting for breast cancer in honor of my mother. I had a basic vision and she just took it an made it absolutely perfect! I can't wait for all the nonprofit pieces to come together so this logo that honors my mom can be seen by the world! Thanks Patt!

About this pro

there are MANY good designers in any geographical area. what i think separates GOOD designers from GREAT designers are the following things: •• an innate design ability. anyone can LEARN the basic principles. GREAT designers were born with a design sense, a design "eye;" you cannot TEACH that. i believe i have that sensibility, not only when it comes to design, but when it comes to people as well. •• people skills/personality are a must. you could be a good designer, but either not be able to deal with clients, criticism, or lack presentation skills. these are all special talents as well, and add to the overall experience for all parties. I am part of the product. not just the physical work in my portfolio. My personality, the interaction BETWEEN personalities is all important and KEY to successful jobs and establishing relationships that evolve on other levels. •• a sense of HUMOR, coupled with a professional attitude, doesn't hurt either! those things (in droves) have taken me a LONG way on all sorts of levels. i thrive on/like ALL of it. the client interaction. figuring out the "big picture." the research and concept process. the discovery process. that "a ha!" moment when an idea just "clicks." the "pulling it all together." the presentation. the application. the production. the delivery. the results. the smiles. the NEXT job. what's NOT to like?

    Q & A

    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      there aren't necessarily any COMMON jobs. all jobs are unique, depending on the client and the specific client's needs, goals. MY GOAL and talent is to really "read" and "get" what the client is telling me (or NOT telling me), so when concepts/designs/layouts are presented, 99.5% of the time, we are ON THE MARK, or very close to the design "working." Very rarely, are we "going back to the drawing board." This saves time/energy/money on all sides, and creates heightened trust between all parties. i truly enjoy the discovery and presentation process, meeting clients' goals, and establishing new, long-term relationships in the process. it TRULY is what i do best. i have copious examples of logo/brochure/corporate identity/magazine and newsletter/direct mail, etc. work with coordinating references upon request!
    • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
      ABOUT THE PROFESSION: in general, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. generally, designers who charge lower fees do not have the experience, client skills or the talent. with lower-end designers, the chance of having to go "back to the drawing board" several times in order to get an approved design is high. there is a reason some designers' fees are higher. their overall level of expertise, attention-to-detail, client and presentation skills, and success of concepts from "out of the gate" warrant higher fees. A DESIGN SOFTWARE PROGRAM DOES NOT NECESSARILY MAKE ONE A "DESIGNER." ABOUT ME: i am gonna quote something a great client once said about me. i am humbled and grateful. "I can't say enough good things about Patt's exceptional design work. I was incredibly fortunate that Patt was already working with DePaul in 2002 when I was hired to produce alumni publications for various colleges within DePaul. I worked with Patt for more than 11 years, and time and time again, she did fantastic work for me! For each issue, once I would complete my reporting and editing work, I would email Patt a pile of articles, photo captions and art, and she would always create a beautifully designed and and inviting publication for alumni readers. Often, I wouldn't have a photo for a particular story, and she would always find some really good art or a way to layout the page that would make those pages look great, too. One of the many things that separated Patt from other graphic designers was the fact that she actually read the articles I sent her. I knew this because one of the many ways she made my life easier was by selecting the perfect pull-out quote that always captured the essence of a story (and catching her share of typos). In addition to being a talented design professional with an eye for beauty and detail, she is a joy to work and interact with. She has a kind, creative and beautiful spirit. I highly recommend her!"
