How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was young my father thought I should be a mechanical engineer. I wished I could be an artist, but my fine art skills never quite blossomed. When I was in high school I discovered that graphic design fit my skills and desires and I never again thought about doing anything else.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I do a lot of print design including, but not limited to business cards, letterhead, brochures, publications, advertising, and direct mail pieces. I have also done many websites and can create both custom HTML sites as well as implement and customize WordPress themes. I have also recently begun doing e-books for online readers.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is much too easy to choose a designer based on the price estimate you receive. Don't be fooled into thinking that cheaper is better. A good, well educated, and experienced designer will get the job done right, on time, the first time and you won't be disappointed. Make sure you look at samples of their work and even contact their references to be sure you know you are getting what you are paying for.
