About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Versatility. Not only am I trained in nearly every sort of visual media under the sun (print, web video, etc), but I'm also very much not tied down to one visual style either. In fact, the idea of being stuck in one style is quite distasteful to me. Variety is, as they say, the spice of life.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I absolutely love the opportunity to take on a creative challenge that forces me to find solutions outside the box and off the beaten path. Collaborating with other professionals who are driven to offer high-quality services is an absolute high for me.

    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.

    Jonathon has been an amazing asset to our work. He created advertising materials for our ministry. He is also redesigning our website. He is both creative and professional. His ideas and his work have greatly helped us achieve our goals. His work is absolutely amazing. We look forward to working with him in the future.

    We needed Cross Country shirts made for boot camp we were hosting for our school. The design was done professionally and most creatively! Other Cross country teams in our conference are already stating their "envy" of our creative and unique shirts. We should have charged double for our camp, based on the comments for our shirts....which is our billboard for this sport. Go Cotter! On to state! Our shirts have propelled the team to get this done!

    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.

Q&A

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.
