What I do as a Graphic Designer

I became a graphic designer because I love to create.

I have come to appreciate my job as one of the best at offering new opportunities to learn – I learn something new every day. I’ve realized everything I do is experiential. It does not matter what I am currently working on – a web page, signage, video, brochure or just a simple logo – everything I create needs to take the end users’ experience into account. Being a designer has increased my desire to learn. The more I know, the greater my desire to expand my knowledge base which creates better solutions for each project I am working on.

My job as a graphic designer—or graphic artist— is to plan, analyze and create visual solutions to communications problems.

I wear many different hats as a graphic artist and web developer while using an equally diverse number of media like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, or Sony Vegas Pro, and even Microsoft’s PowerPoint and Word. With the help of all this media and by using a variety of methods such as color, type, illustration, photography, animation and various print and layout techniques, I am able to create numerous types of designs and find the most effective way to get your message across in print, electronic and film media.

I work closely with my clients, to help them expand upon their initial concept or general idea and turn it into a visually compelling product which garners not only attention, but favorable results as well.

As an Indianapolis-based freelance designer, I offer over 15+ years of experience of marketing services in general with a Bachelors of Science degree in Computer Graphics Technology from Purdue University.
