Design is a scalable, repeatable, flexible system that thrives on input and change. So, being a designer, I am trained to "design think" about everything....thus bringing new and innovative ideas to fruition everyday.
It is hard for us to see ourselves as others...so here is what has just been said about me:
I have always enjoyed Ric ‘s great energy as he works on complex projects.
Ric has a great knowledge of materials and mechanisms that he uses when brainstorming new product designs that can be very helpful to his team.
Jim Mc Cafferty
PRES/CEO JMP CREATIVE
Creating detailed integrated systems that clearly communicate ideas, across multiple platforms and communicated them to upper management.
Building positive team relationships while maintaining intense time lines, having fun while working hard and accomplishing “the un-obtainable”.
Skyline Exhibits makes and markets some of the worlds greatest Exhibit modular systems that appear totally custom. It is my pleasure to help clients get the greatest ROI while leading in their respective markets.
