Freelance Graphic Designer

I've worked previously as a headline typographer, advertising art director and senior graphic designer. When working on a project for a customer, I'm naturally curious about their business and learn what they are seeking to communicate to their market. Much of my work has been business-to-business oriented, for clients in many different fields; nutrition, technology, building materials, legal, and publishing to name a few. It is my goal to create clear communication pieces that inform as well as promote.
