Web & Graphic Designs:

A picture is worth a thousand words, good design is worth thousands more.

I'm a triple threat!

(Links are in blue):

My introduction to graphic arts and web design was as part of my Web Design & Development certification program at WCC. I always try to combine that education with my Marketing undergrad from U of M-Flint, to bring ascetically pleasing and logically laid out designs with room for branding and ad space. I'm an artist, designer and marketer all in one.

  • My work has primarily been in the realms of designing original graphics for clothing, public signage and website design
  • For an in-depth look at my website design process, check out my Intrigue Escape Games Website Development Case Study
  • Favicon design, ad set creation and logo development are also a part of my skillset

I truly enjoy diving deep into the meaning, history and emotion behind the design.

What can I say about my designs?

I appreciate subtle cleverness in design, you can impact people with the littlest details.

  • Mildly skillful with Adobe PhotoShop

I combine the worlds of web design, user experience and marketing all in one!

"Give them what they want, but never what they expect."

I love this quote from V. McMahon, I try to apply it to every design I create.
