Throughout my college career, I intended to be an IT Administrator and went to Purdue University fully motivated to become just that. But as many of us have experienced, life seems to has other plans. So with a slight change of wind, I instead find myself under a creative umbrella. Now I create clean, elegant, and creative UI for web dev, print, digital media, and far more.
It's been nearly 25 years since I've learned many of the basic languages such as HTML and CSS. Currently, I strive to master bleeding-edge technologies, platforms & languages (NodeJs, ReactJS, HTML5, CSS3, Sass, NoSQL, Git, GitHub, CI/CD, APIs, ...), to help strengthen a client's position in their respective markets.
Now that you know my story, take the plunge and reach out... tell me a bit about yourself, what you would like to create, and how I may be able to help you.
Failing to properly onboard a client has consequences that can ripple through the life of the project. Without
the proper plan in place, execution
becomes misguided, and the campaign has no direction. A project without clear direction and complete buy-in on
both sides doesn't stand much of a chance.
I'm sure you have experienced this in the past. I know I have, and it wasn't fun.
I do expect you as a client to be involved, especialy since you know your business and the direction in which you want to guide it, far better than I do. The more information you as a client initially provides, the better the result for the both of us (but especially you).
Topics we will cover in the development stage may vary but a few starting points may include:
• Corporate Profile
• Market Position
• Communication Task
• Target Market – Demographics
Whether you're a graphic designer, web developer, programmer or otherwise, having a system set up will help
you get the work done faster in addition to
keeping things organized and the developer/client relationship a positive one.
Once we have a clear strategy, the idea is to create preliminary design concepts based on the strategy we developed. Developing concepts can be done through various means when inspiration strikes, but here are some of the most effective:
• Mind Mapping: A diagram that's used to represent words, ideas, and tasks linked to a central idea.
• Free Writing: A great way to get your ideas down on paper and later expand on them.
• Layout Creation: From collected inspiration, play around with color schemes and typography until a direction strikes you.
This is when I begin to prototype ideas. With your help... these ideas can then be narrowed down to one focused target for further development and refinement.
With an approved prototype design, the developer is now able to implement the finished piece across all
which may include digital images, print work and UI development, web development, etc.
Depending on the project and media type, the materials may often be handed off to a third-party, which includes:
• Media Outlet
• Host Provider
If it's a web project, instructions and documentation may be required for administrative purposes, or web host launching. There's nothing more rewarding than turning over a completed project to a satisfied client. With a solid process in place for completing such projects, we not only establish a closer relationship, but we take a lot of the guesswork out when it comes down to creating something memorable for you, your clients and anyone who interacts with your newly created project.

The best or nothing
The logo design for the Gencyber Camp 2016 at PNW, perfectly complimented our scheme, "cybersecurity and the joint effort among government agencies and academia."
They're great in the creative product space. Their service has been amazing and the deliverables have exceeded our expectations, no matter our budget or size of the project.
We were extremely lucky to have Adam on our team for 7 years. He and his company handled every part of our Advertising, Marketing, Graphic Design, Print Work and Web Design effectively.
