Encapsulating a brands vision in a unique and easily conveyed manner is not small feat and a challenge I love. I find logo design to be enticing and gathering the information from the client and their prospective vision is only half the battle. Typically I offer 3-5 initial concepts after a client fills out a questionnaire, and we meet to discuss potential concepts.

I have been managing project for 20+ years. I started with my construction company which developed my astounding work ethic. In the design world, I have managed small yet effective teams during my independent years. Scheduling, target analysis, time lines, financials, work flow, and other aspects have been ingrained into my organizational leadership qualities. I am one that loves to work with a team and find it important to interface with colleagues to ensure the ship is steered straight. I believe in a top-down and bottom-up levels of communication. Despite, being the manager and having to direct in-house employees more importantly managing external organizations and clients is key to successful delivery. You would be amazed how much even the smallest gesture of reinforcement will motivate employees. In the end it is about meeting deadlines with quality products and interaction.
