Who You Are
You’re a creative whose skills don’t fit neatly into a box. While your right brain loves art and design in all of its guises, while your left brain loves finding simple solutions to complex challenges in both the digital and real-world end-user experience. Your thrive on the consistent perfection of typography, the implementation of complex brand systems, and the preflighting and output of perfect files for print and digital applications.
You design for work. You design for pleasure. You probably have a copy of Emil Ruder’s Typographie on your bookshelf alongside the letterpress, screen-printed, or hand-lettered work you created for yourself. You can navigate the Adobe Creative Suite and Powerpoint with your eyes closed, you know how to set type, how to retouch images, and how to prepare perfect files for print, and for web. You understand and appreciate the difference between digital and offset. You also understand the brand value and importance of beautiful large-format experiential design alongside thoughtfully conceived and executed small touches, and translating these real-world aesthetics into stunning websites, emails, and printed collateral. You never settle for “good enough”.
If this is you, then we need to talk.
