I am a professional graphic designer and illustrator in the Seattle Area with a degree in Visual Communications and Fine Art from Seattle Pacific University. For the last 10 years, I have worked in a variety of industries as an in-house designer, contract employee and independent freelancer; currently I’m working under my own brand as a freelance graphic designer and am interested in developing relationships with local businesses in need a graphic services. I am an experienced and knowledgeable designer with a background in branding & identity, event design, marketing materials, advertising, labels/packaging, and illustration/information graphics. I’m particularly interested in and excited about getting more into event design and logo development; the delicate balance of illustration and design that goes into these kinds of projects make them especially intriguing to me. I’m motivated and passionate about what I do and take great pride in my work, and am always looking for new clients and artistic challenges. I believe that quality design comes from great partnerships; and that clear communication with a little trust can lead to a fantastic final product. :|: Freelance rates and estimate available upon request :|:
