Brilliant, bordering on telepathic! Brian knew exactly what I wanted, more precisely than I did. He presented me with several amazing designs to choose from and I couldn't be happier. The finished product was exactly what we wanted for our business' image. A stellar professional!

Superior work, it's just that simple! I couldn't have been happier with the product produced for me. It seemed almost effortless. Really happy with the outcome and even more so with the positive attitude and helpfulness!

ABOUT

 

Award-winning designer, illustrator, and creative director. Experience includes, but is not limited to: branding, logo design, illustration, packaging/labels, book covers, and magazines. Background includes agency, higher education, and newspaper.

My philosophy is “be bold.” It describes my work and my approach to creativity. “Be bold” means be noticed, be different, be daring. The approach should never be less, no matter the subject. Don’t settle for standard, safe, or average. Small or large business, start-up or established — you can always represent yourself professionally and with personality.

More than thinking outside the box, I don’t acknowledge the box. I approach every project on a client-by-client basis. Each is unique and my approach is as well. You will not receive any clip art style elements to your design. There will not be cookie cutter approaches. I strive to create something new and unique with each project. Standard or average are not in my vocabulary.
