Howdy, thank you for reviewing my profile. Over 15 years of experience in print design, advertising, logo & brand identity creation. Worked with clients such as Toyo Tires, Ryobi Power Tools and The Home Depot. I specialize in clever, sophisticated and modern design. More than 5 years experience as “brand captain” supervising junior and contract graphic designers and maintaining brand standards for national consumer power tool brand. Expert competency levels in Adobe Creative Cloud programs like Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. Design award recognition from American Advertising Federation, In-House Agency Forum, North American Retail Hardware Association and iheartlogos.com. Aiming to build a relationship with companies that see the value of a professional brand. I work best one-on-one, no design-by-committee please. Past clients appreciate my creative input, efficiency, curiosity and my commitment to on-time delivery. Open for freelance and full time opportunities.
