Plan, Design, CREATE, Produce, Repeat

I've saved firms millions using advanced production knowledge and technologies, helped to create a whole new type of direct marketing, and worked on the front lines with the most valuable and admired brand in the world.

Yes, working with smart teammates is the secret here.

Graphic Design

From logos and identity systems, to the quality of your printing and your choice of photography, graphic design is how you show that you're running a professional operation.  And professional does NOT mean boring, old, or "exactly as expected."

I'm lucky enough to have worked alongside creators and strategists with the highest degree of passion and talent, where we learned what works, what doesn't, and what you just have to try anyway.

Photography and
Photo Art Direction

Just calling in a "shooter" isn't the end with product or promotional photography.

 I'm expert at on-site and in-studio direction of photographers, and in selecting and editing the final visual images that will represent you.

As someone who previously worked with the Adobe team, taught Photoshop, and created everything from catalogs to billboards using the world's most advanced computer systems, this just comes natural to me.  And now, to you too.

Planning and  Strategy

What do you do first? How important is establishing your position?  Wait. What's "positioning" again?

Will the old logo work, or should it be updated (or changed completely)?

Who will actually plan, write and handle your day-to-day social media postings?

We've learned from our mistakes, both small and large (i.e., don't buy printing based on price alone when you're printing 800,000 of ANYTHING), and we  get to bring those painfully-gained smarts to your projects and brand development.

And yes, oftentimes the best strategy is just saying, "OK, your idea's better than mine. Let's go with that."

Doesn't sound all that macho. But it works like crazy.
