“I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares, as opposed to ugly things. That’s my intent.” Saul Bass
I Am A Graphic Designer
I am a graphic designer and artist. My skill set includes a wide range of print, web, and interaction design as well as corporate identity design such as logos, letterheads, and business cards. Since I can't make a living playing tabletop RPGs, designing starships, and engaging in geekery, graphic design is the next best thing. I love design work! First and foremost, I am a creative. I thrive on innovative ideas and try to approach problems from a fresh angle when stuck. When not buried in Adobe software I'm either sketching, painting, writing, or laying plans for game night.
I Have Experience
I have worked solo as a freelance graphic designer on web and print projects. I've also worked collaboratively with a team as well as managing a small graphics department. I play well with others and love it when ideas meld. I have no problem processing constructive criticism without taking it personally. I’m fluent in Adobe design software for print and web. I know HTML, CSS, and can build WordPress themes from scratch. As a graphic designer I enjoy challenges and learning new skills as well as improving my existing skill set. Take a look at my portfolio below. I like clean, sharp results and I don't like to skimp on the details of a project.
I live and work in beautiful New Orleans, Louisiana. This city has a habit of digging its claws in and keeping you here. Not unwillingly, but because it quickly becomes home.
I am not currently taking on new freelance clients. If you need to contact me for another reason you can email me or call 504.473.5179
Below you will find some samples of my graphic and web design work.
Camp Stickers, Burning Man 2015
These stickers were created for A Confederacy of Dunces, a theme camp at the art festival Burning Man. Created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
Cairo, Illinois Data Sheets
These sheets were created for the city of Cairo, IL while working for GCR Inc. They were presented to the mayor, city council, and citizens in a town hall meeting to discuss the comprehensive plan for revitalization. They are also available on the city website.
GCR Inc. Website
This site was designed and developed over several months with much input from other staff and management. In the end, I created the custom theme and wrote all of the custom script that was needed. This site runs on the WordPress CMS.
