I have over 20 years of experience in design and art direction. I thrive on finding ways to help clients achieve goals. I have a entrepreneurial background and often advise clients on ways to streamline business processes that relate to "design thinking". Over the years I have formed invaluable friendships with developers, search engine optimization (seo) experts, and writers whom regularly assist me on projects. In my other life I'm a Professor of Graphic Design and Chair of the Art Department at Samford University in Birmingham AL. I love traveling with my wife Timarie and our son Finn. Please follow me at one of the following sites.
I enjoy hearing about client needs and I would be happy to sit down (free of charge) and chat with you about your project. I always provide a detailed quote that spell out all expectations, due dates, and costs. I never go over budget unless something is changed or added midway through a project. I charge $65 an hour which is a average rate for a freelance graphic designer. I have won dozens of design awards and I hope I can make award winning work for you.
