I started teaching myself how to design in my freshman year of high school. A friend and I created a comic and cartoon animation series that we wanted to share with the world. What started out as rough sketches turned into digital painting, graphic design, animation, and then website design. At that point I was teaching myself everything.
Moving onto my last two years of high school, I attended a technical career center half-day for digital design. In this program I had the opportunity to do a few client projects pro bono – and this was when I realized I could do what I loved for a living!
I now have a degree in digital design and business, but I take pride in being primarily self-taught. I’m not afraid to make mistakes. In my book, mistakes are only lessons learned.
Do you accept rush jobs?
I do! Depending on my current workload and if you’re willing to pay a small rush fee for the work, I will do what it takes to get the job done. I’m here to help out in anyway possible—Even if you’re on a time crunch.
What’s the best way to reach you?
Email works best and is prefered. It’s fast, efficient, and I like having a written record of our conversation.
What programs do you use?
Like most creatives, I use Adobe Creative Cloud. Mostly Photoshop and Illustrator. I work on an iMac.
Do you code websites?
I do what I can, but that’s only so much. I specialize in graphic design, doing logos and t-shirt design. Websites aren’t really my thing. However, I know some great web developers I can work with to get the job done, so still feel free to get in touch.
Are you available to commute to work and/or meet at our location?
Unfortunately I’m not able to commute to your location for work or meetings. Being a freelance graphic designer, my client base isn’t limited to local projects. I have a strict schedule to stick to in order to meet deadlines. My current operations run simple and smooth, so I have no future plans of changing them.
