Making the Connection

Life depends on communication. Graphic design is all about solving visual communication gaps in creative ways. I’m passionate about listening first, learning what you need, and finding imaginative ways to link your message with the people who need to hear it.

What does that mean?

When you walk by a cluttered bulletin board, what makes you look at one flyer amidst all the other chaos? Something about it speaks to you. It’s more than words and clip art; it’s interesting and relevant enough to capture your attention. Graphic design is what makes that difference.

The Power of Good Design

How often have you turned in a report and wondered if anyone would even read it? Imagine if, instead of turning in something that looks like a high school essay, you could show your Board of Directors something that looks more like a magazine. Include your favorite photos from your big event, articles from stakeholders, testimonials from clients, infographics showing your accomplishments at a glance — do you think they’d be more likely to read it now?

You’re proud of the work you do. Professional design can help others see the value of it too.

How can I help you?

Every project is different. I’m flexible and love new challenges, so let’s talk about what you need — graphic design, writing, illustration, photography, hand-made cards or invitations, organizing, or other creative problem solving unique to your situation. Anything is possible!

How would this work?

In most cases, I’ll be a contractor working with you on an hourly or retainer basis. I usually work remotely but have also done temporary on-site contracts when a staff member is on leave. I welcome clients from anywhere in the world. If you’re in the San Jose area, I’d also be delighted to meet you in person!
