As an owner of a small company (50 employees), I have contracted with many graphic artists and designers over the past 25 years. Without question Jonathon's work was in the top 1 percent. He was timely, professional, creative, and in the end he exceeded expectations. I do not hesitate to give him my highest recommendation.Oct 1, 2012
Jonathon not only quoted the best price, but his work was quality and he by far surpassed our expectations. We will be contacting him for all future graphic design work and will also be referring others to him.May 14, 2012Verified
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Honestly I kind of fell into it. I've always been a doodler in the margins of my notebooks at school, always was the kid who spent more time picking out the fonts for the cover page on his paper than actually writing the thing itself, and then in college I discovered Photoshop. Shortly thereafter I found out people actually paid guys like me to take all that eccentricity and channel it into design work making logos, flyers, websites and the like. It was off to design school about two months later and I've never looked back.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Most of my experience is in print (page layout, packaging, business cards, etc) and brand identity design (logos, etc). I have done some limited work in web design as well, and very much enjoyed it. I plan on honing my web development skills sometime in the near future to make myself even more valuable to clients seeking website work.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?It saves a lot of time and money on both ends if you have a good idea of what you want before you contact a designer. As much as we would like one, we don't have a magic wand that tells us what you want and how to make it happen. The most efficient and enjoyable business I've ever conducted was with clients who came to me with a solid idea and the willingness to let me flesh it out.
