Introduction: We've created some well known, high profile logos, such as the Blockbuster Videos logo. We also work for startups and entrepreneurs. No job is too small or too big. Photo restoration is a new passion of mine. I love to return priceless memories to people. I grew up in the advertising industry, and my relatives on both sides are in the arts. It's in my blood I suppose you could say. It's amazing to get paid for what you love to do. Over the years, I've come to enjoy branding the most. It's a thrill to deliver a brand to a client who appreciates the effort and nuances involved. This is our high profile client list, including but not limited to : Ampad (American Pad & Paper) Birds Eye Blockbuster Video Dairy Queen FreshPoint, Inc. (SYSCO) Frito-Lay IBM JCPenney K-C Aviation (Kimberly-Clark) KOAI Radio (The OASIS) KTKS Radio (KISS 106) Nu-Kote/Pelikan Southland Corp.

I was amazed how well he restored a passport picture with all the stamps across the faces. Will go back when I need any other pictures restored. Thanks Lee.

Lee Dean was the first pro to respond to my search. I needed a vintage photo restored. He did an excellent job! And the turn around time was very prompt! His fee was incredibly budget-friendly, considering his provided a priceless service! I will be using him again for other projects.

Photo Editing, Scanning and Restoration

I took a drawing of my sister that some one drew on an old piece of paper, that I found in an old box. I really was not sure anyone could help me restore this old drawing. I found the perfect person - He did an amazing job!!!!!! I could not believe it. That he could turn something old and faded into a beautiful photo for my family. He always reply's quickly, very nice man, and does amazing work. I will hire him again, again, and again.

I give Lee a very high rating on all of the above. He was able to restore a 112 yer old photo that had bad water damage and had been torn in half across the faces and made it look like it never happened.

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Started in my father’s studio. I am a second generation designer.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    The creative process-- You've made business critical decisions, and now you're ready to go to market, or upgrade your look. You need an identity fast, but it was the last thing on your list. --The beginning. The creative process is unlike any other. It relies on intuition and other intangibles and is difficult to quantify. Most artists can't even tell you how it works universally, but they can tell you how it works for them. Most processes work on a schedule and graphic art is no different, except you never know when inspiration will strike. The hardest thing you have to do is be patient. It is usually well worth it. Anyone can slap out a serviceable logo with little thought, and cheap to boot. There are many web sites out there that do this, many times using a collection of clip art they have developed.

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    The time it takes to produce good work. I wish Thumbtack customers knew the going rates in the professional design world. They would then have a better appreciation for the deal they are getting through this portal.
