    Senior Graphic Designer / Illustrator

    Summit Station, PA

I'm Accepting select freelance projects that don't conflict with my full-time position. WHO BE? I'm a weird, honest, explosive sack of sticky ideas. Sometimes I'm a dinosaur. WHAT DO? • line art & illustration • logos & logo-stuff • package & print design I enjoy arranging pixels to make people notice, point at, or want things. • I like and respect white space. • I'm not afraid of questions or answers. • I hunt information. • I enjoy compulsive organization, semantics, and pretzels. • I will occasionally make us all laugh uncomfortably.
