ABOUT ME

THIS IS BRAD:

My design point-of-view:

 

I am a designer who believes in clean elemental solutions to any graphic challenge. There is power in negative space and when I first read Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's philosophy, "Less is more" it struck a chord that remains in everything I do. The real world of graphic design does not always allow for this to be in the final solution, but I believe it should be one of the many filters I use when working on every graphic project.

 

I've spent my entire career creating solutions for my clients' advertising and branding hurdles.

SERVICES

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I live and breathe design, typography, color theory, and composition... all the better to create stunning visuals for both print and digital media.

PRINT PRODUCTION

Manage the entire print process (bids, scheduling, production and delivery) of producing publications, from concept through production, including photography, 4-color press work and digital production.

CAMPAIGN STRATEGY

Let me show you how to meet the advertising objectives of your business. Combining all the elements needed to maximize your budget and meet your goals.

RETAIL PACKAGING

Engage with the client to understand what the packaging program needs to convey and how it aligns to the company's overall brand objectives; as well meeting required budget, and timeline parameters.

WEB DESIGN

Determine and develop the look and feel of your site, including site navigation design and visual execution.

DIGITAL EDITING

Need a photograph of a red car turned blue? How about removing the dog's reflection in a window of a butcher shop? I can do that and more.

FONT MANIPULATION

Graphic designers love to use typography to explore the interaction between the look of type and what type actually says. In communicating a message, a balance has to be achieved between the visual and the verbal aspects of a design.

MAG+ PUBLICATION

Mag+ is a digital publishing plug-in for Adobe InDesign that converts print publications into interactive tablet or phone publications for Apple and Android devices.  I know Mag+ in and out.
