Design is an incredibly important aspect of almost anything, in my opinion. In business especially, design is crucial — and “good” is not nearly good enough! I am passionate about color, visual effects, and typography; utilizing space to maximize the effectiveness of a design; and especially an attention to fine details. If and where I can, I love to incorporate subtle details that are meaningful to a person and their brand.
I have created designs in a multitude of categories, based on both my own personal style and preferences, as well as custom designs based on customer specifications in a wide range of design styles. I love to work with people to find what exactly they are looking for — and I also love to offer a variety of designs for those who aren’t exactly sure what style they are seeking.
Branding is especially important — it establishes your unique presence in this vast world of internet business, and it is the basis for everything you create for your company going forward. There are several things that I can do and create to help establish your brand.
I also believe that it is wonderful when documents within a company are formatted as efficiently and good-looking as possible. Work is so much more fun when your documents provide you with exactly what you need, and it doesn’t hurt for them to look good! In fact, an appealing combination of of function and design makes you feel better about the work you’re doing! This is especially true of documents that you send to your clients and employees.
