I am a full-time freelancer specializing in print design, desktop publishing, photography and small-site web design. I have more than 20 years experience and a B.A. in art/design from Cal Poly Pomona. I am able to develop a project completely from initial concept to final output. I can work with marketing departments, create a timeline, manage other designers and production staff, coordinate various kinds of outside services (including pre-press and printing), locate and direct local vendors.
I have extensive experience with commercial printing and digital pre-press: all kinds of printing services (sheet-fed, web, digital, specialty, bindery, fulfillment), service bureaus, digital output, color proofing, traditional and digital photography.
