– FREELANCE –


I have several years of freelance design. Over these years I have worked with many satisfied customers. The logo section of my site features many of these logo designs. Visit the recently added testimonial page to read comments from past customers.

 

If you are interested in starting a design project, feel free to email me. Let me know any details of the project, such as the text, illustrations you would like, colors, design style, etc. I will then send a price quote/agreement statement. Low resolution images with a watermark will be sent for you to proof, and when the design is approved and payment is complete, I will send the final files. Files are normally sent as Jpeg and vector PDF files. The vector format allows for editing or enlarging as needed, and is usable for any printing needs. Other formats can also be sent upon request.

 

Advertised prices are priced for basic designs, which apply to most projects. More complex or time consuming designs may have additional costs, but that would be stated before beginning the project. Average time to receive the first proof is 3-4 days, though times may vary depending on complexity and my current schedule.

 

– PAYMENT –

After the final design is approved, and the final invoice is sent, you can make the payment. Click on the PayPal logo on the home page, right side. This will open a PayPal window. You can type in the payment amount in the "Unit Price" window, and click update. Then you can type in your PayPal account information if you have one, or your credit card information. Then click send and payment will be complete.

– WORK EXPERIENCE –

 

2010 – Today • I currently work as a graphic designer for a large sports equipment company.


2006 – 2010 • Four years as graphic artist for a promotional company. Duties included layout of awards and working with company logos and images to work for etching, casting, or screen print. I worked with low resolution images and redrew them as vector images for better quality etching. I also did image editing for sublimation or lamination plaques.

 

2003 – 2006 • Three years with SAFE-T Classroom Products as the senior graphic designer. The variety of work was tremendous as I was the only artist responsible for all design work besides the art director. Some of my duties included: catalog/book layout and design, catalog/book cover design, logo design, display artwork, flyers, ads, photography, packaging design and layout, and a variety of other artwork the company needed.

 

2001 – 2003 • Two years working for a large catalog company with over twenty different catalogs. My duties included layout of catalog pages, creating advertisements, silhouetting images, photography clean-up, and other artistic responsibilities. The artists worked as a team to handle the volume among all the catalogs.

 

2001 – 2007 • Seven years as team artist for a water ski team, The Rock Aqua Jays. Owning 15 national championships, the team had allowed me many design opportunities and national design exposure. They relied on me for team logo designs, as well as logos for regional and national tournaments, booklet cover designs, backdrop and prop designs, stickers, magnets, ads, and any other artistic needs. I also edited sound and music for the team.
