Designing Influence. Drawing Attention.
I create visual design and branding that help you achieve your business and organizational goals. My work has helped some clients realize as much as a 500% increase in their business over time.
I’m a generalist with a broad expertise and a proven track record.
I approach the design process as a collaborative effort with you. My creative insights mesh with your specific understanding of your services and products. I design for your customers and clients.
Approaching brand design in this manner requires an investment of time and diligence. There are no instant, off-the-rack solutions. The results of my process assist you with your marketing goals.
Businesses and Organizations
I focus on long-term projects with a 6-month minimum duration and retainer contracts of a year or more. This approach allows me to focus on just a few clients at a time, study your customer base and your market position, and get to know the vision and mission for your business. We'll build a quality working relationship with mutual benefit.
Authors and Publishers
I can illustrate your book cover, and I can also design the cover. I can illustrate and design the entire book. And I can work with you to publish on Amazon.
LOGO and IDENTITY DESIGN
Creation of a unique logo or trademark, stand-alone or with applications to communications formats, graphic standards manuals, research and consultation. Your logo is the foundation of your brand strategy; everything else emanates from it, and it’s applied to everything from your business cards to social media.
I design custom websites built on the WordPress framework that are visitor-friendly, pretty to look at, and consistent with your branding. Ongoing maintenance is available, or I'll train you to manage your site to keep your costs low.
Social Media Graphics & Ads

If you're only publishing a digital version, or you want an eBook of your printed book, I'll design an electronic version. I offer electronic conversion only for books and publications that I’ve designed.
