MY SPECIALTIES INCLUDE

01

Illustration

One of my favorite hobbies is eating, but also creating digital recreations of the food I ate, and other things that bring me joy.

I also illustrate other things from animals, people, general phrases, words or letters, and various objects. Most, if not all of my illustrations, are created using geometric shapes, bold colors, and simple applications. 

02

Character Illustration

These fun little guys are the result of a study based on how subtle differences in characters such as hair, facial expressions, or skin tones could alter a character’s appearance and general mood they project.

The set of little kids were created using geometric shapes that were layered over one another for depth and structure, the Guys in Green were created using a similar method, and the facial expression exercise featuring yours truly were created using shapes and fine line work.

03

Logo Design & Branding

Most of my clients come to me with these two requests specifically. They’re in need of logos for the up and coming businesses and/or they need help creating an identity for it.

I’ve worked with photogrpahers, pet care providers, furniture retailers, creative consultants, food and beverage entrepreneurs, and many others. Maybe you could be my next client?

04

Apparel Design

My partner is the head coach of the South Mecklenburg High School Cross Country team so by association that means I am the official team graphic designer 🙂

I created their footprint logo for the team to use on t-shirts, hats, shorts, and other apparel items. The graphic on the second shirt with the castle was created for the team’s trip to Disney World.

05

Hand Lettering

Dolce cookie co. was a project that involved my friend, Professor of Graphic Design, Diane Gibbs paring me with her, then, University of South Alabama student, (now alumnus) Meagan Apperson on her assignment.

The project required that a student team up with a designer outside of the school and act as the client to better understand the client vs. designer relationship (she did great.)

In this project, Meagan requested I help her by hand lettering the name of her faux company, and create a logo for their clients. All around this was a fun exploratory project for us both.

06

Infographics

This infographic was created for The Monolith Group in partnership with my friend Kara Schwab, Content Strategy Manager.

Kara, being the exceptional copywriter that she is, wrote the information for the infographic and brought me in to create the illustrations and icons, and also layout the overall design.

This particular infographic focuses on Storage Use in the U.S. and displays the information gathered by The Monolith Group.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes getting started can be difficult. You aren’t alone in that aspect. Below is a list of FAQs by clients, and how I attempt to answer them as clearly as possible.

What do you do?

I specialize in graphic and digital design for print and digital advertising, branding, layout, online (paid/organic) media, marketing, promotion, environmental, mobile and print applications.

How do I get started?

Simply send me an email describing the goal you’re trying to achieve with your new project, the deadline, and how soon you’re looking to begin.

What is considered a "revision" ?

A revision constitutes a change or variation to an initially presented—or in-progress—design concept, and is typically a change of less than 1/4 of the design. A revision is simply meant to be a slight modification or course correction to progress toward the final design. A new design concept is not considered a revision. This means that a new design concept would be an addition to the project, and would need to be estimated separately, in addition to the current project estimate.

How much do you charge?

I will, to the best of my ability, work well within your budget to provide you quality work that meets the requirements of your creative brief. (**Keep in mind: you get what you pay for. You wouldn’t go to the mechanic and say, “I really need a new transmission, but I can only pay you half what it’s worth.” They will unapologetically turn you away.)

My (insert person's relation to you here) wants to take a look at this. Do you mind if (they) send over their notes?

While I encourage you to share this process with your (insert person’s relation to you here), I do not accept direction from them. I am here to solve your problem, not the theirs. They aren’t involved in the process as we are, and any compliments, complaints, or concerns should be considered under your own personal discretion.

Can you recommend any other creative professionals?

YES! I am more than happy to connect with you fellow designers that are more equipped to handle your needs! After all, we’re all out to help each other!
