    Doug helped me with the Art for my new album. I spent three years creating the album and had very high standards for the graphic design. Doug listened to what I wanted and added his own creative input for a product I am 100% satisfied with. I requested a few edits to the original design and he was more than happy to accommodate me. If you want to see the art, check out my album "Seasons" on iTunes. Thanks Doug!!

    Doug Larue is a fantastic web designer and artist. He designed my first website, and will soon do a complete update for me. He is very easy to work with, always responds to questions quickly, and knows what I need for my business even when I am clueless. Dependable and exceptional work!

    Working with Doug was an absolute pleasure. He was able to lend his creative mind and experience in taking my project in a direction that I had not even considered. The project turned out great! I would recommend Doug to anyone for their design and creative needs.

    As a manager of working bands, I find Doug to be an invaluable resource. He has a great eye and an understanding of what an artist needs from a set of photos, whether they be from a live or studio setting. Highest recommendations!

    Doug was great in providing creative insight to my Willie Nelson studio videos. His creative graphic production, editing and final product were exactly what was needed for views. I would highly recommend Doug and will work with him again in the future.

    Love working with Doug. He has captured many Strings Attached events since 2008 including our Dark Side of the Moon Halloween Ball and Bob Schneider. He is a true musicians' friend. His editing makes the music and interaction the musicians have on stage come alive. Like putting a magnifying glass to whats happening there. I highly recommend his work! - Will Taylor http://stringsattached.org

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to have a conversation with the client to find out exactly what they need and how long we have to work with. We may need to gather various elements of the project before we begin. Communication is key so we get to the final product quickly and effectively.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Absolutely, I am always reviewing new concepts in media design and expanding my capabilities with Adobe Creative Suite and with traditional skills in painting and Illustration.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Many factors can affect the final price of a project. It is best to have a detailed honest discussion about what is expected.

The natural skills enhanced by the creative passions and skills passed onto me by my family. My father was an Engineer who liked Photography and my mother was an Artist / Painter.
