IDENTITY

a powerful, intangible asset that directly affects your bottom line

In business, your identity includes any visual — print or digital — that represents you. It often begins with a logo design. Depending on your needs, it may then include business cards, letterhead, postcards, banners, billboards and signage. When combined, these elements constitute your branding. All of this must be consistent and coherent. I work with you to develop and coordinate an effective visual identity.

WEB DESIGN

the first thing anyone sees when they look for you or your business

Today, an online identity is essential. Using the latest technologies, I build websites that are stylish, accessible, standard-compliant, responsive (adjusting to desktop, tablet, or mobile device), and usable. Beyond good design, a website comes to life with dynamic online applications, newsletters, registrations, galleries, content management systems (CMS), search engine optimizations (SEO), and much more. If this is your first online effort, we can assist in getting a domain name, a provider, and setting you up. In some cases, we can even host it for you. If you already have a site, we can add new features or revamp it with a new look.

PRINT

coated or uncoated — paper still makes an impact

Print is the traditional realm for graphic designers. As technology accelerates and becomes more web-driven, there is still a need for the authority and presence of physical materials. I can take your project from concept to completion. My intimate understanding of the centuries-old craft of printing, coupled with a long-term relationships with top printers, helps me leverage production as a design tool, and ensure the flawless execution on your project.

BOOK DESIGN

your work is special — I know this

BLURB, LULU, and the Amazon-connected KINDLE (among others) make the self-publishing of your novel, memoir, or cookbook a reality. While their templates are user-friendly, my professional services will make your work stand out from the rest. I can handle the entire process from rough manuscript through finished publication — or, to suit your needs, I can offer specialized services such as copy editing, cover design, illustration, page layout, photo editing, proofreading, or typography. I simplify the process and guide you through the decisions — whether you publish only one book or thousands (hardcover, paperback, or e-book).

SCIENCE

submission-ready figures for researchers; forensic image analysis for publishers

The scientific community has special publication needs and standards. If you are a researcher ready to publish your findings, I can assist in the preparation of your figures — both for print and online publication. If you are a publisher concerned about the integrity of submissions, I am uniquely qualified to perform forensic image analysis. See more details on the “Testimonials” tab on this site.

keywords: forensic image analysis, publication, research, scientific figures, submissions

TRAINING

group classes and personal tutorials — plus general support

Graphic and page layout software applications are only as good as the skills available to use them. I offer classroom training or personal one-on-one tutorial programs. Contact me if you need help with any of the applications in the Adobe Creative Suite (Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, InDesign, PhotoShop, etc.), the CorelDraw Graphic Suite, or MS Office (Excel, Powerpoint, Project, Publisher, Word, etc.).

  • Francis Rahl, Northrop Grumman

    “I have known Chris for many years and have found him to be a highly skilled graphics designer, web designer/master, and conventional paper publisher. He is a complete gentleman, has an extremely quick mind, sense of humor, and a strong sense of design. Chris has a strong commitment to his community and has done extensive pro bono work in marketing his neighborhood. He has created and maintained an excellent website and has frequently produced beautiful booklets and brochures for house and garden tours.”

    Chris Michaels, Clear Channel

    “Chris is an incredible talent. This guy helped me produce many awesome commercials. His baritone provided a great contrast to my tenor. Clients went nuts over his comic timing and clever deadpan takes. Chris’ script ideas were always spot on... his rewrites made our spots hugely successful so we got a lot of serial ads. Chris loved doing live remotes at store openings and movie openings. The crew at the station said he would show up for the opening of a paper bag... anyplace where he had an audience. Some of his best moments were when Chris would MC the comedy clubs... the man can work a crowd! When the station changed to the Mix format, he jumped into the advertising and promotion of our new look. He got one Gold and two Silver Addy Awards for the billboard graphics, the van graphics and the direct mailers. He was always excellent with that design stuff. Chris is reliable, hard-working and enthusiastic. He’ll challenge you to do your best and doesn’t miss an opportunity to make things sharper and more effective. So it’s not just about him... he likes to make his colleagues and managers look their best. He actually enjoys that part and I’ve personally gained from it!”

    Linda Edelman, Society of American Foresters

    “Chris is the go-to individual for any questions concerning digital art. His exceptional knowledge and cheerful willingness to impart it to others is nothing short of amazing.”

    Carl Dahlstrom, Entrepreneur

    “I heard about Chris and his creative abilities from a friend of mine who had no first hand experience from hiring him however she had heard of him by reputation. In short, Chris lived up to his reputation and his results creating a web page and corporate identity for my own business far exceeded my expectations. Chris is very talented, not only in terms of his creativity and design skills but also in his technical and people skills. He is smart, reliable, trustworthy and he has an outstanding sense of humor. A rare combination of positive attributes! I sincerely recommend Chris and am confident anyone who hires him will pass the word on to friends, colleagues and even family members.”

    Anita McLellan, BD Biosciences

    “Chris was a level headed manager that could effectively manage the day to day business operations as well as promote the business using his creative skills and artistic talents. He was always approachable and easy to work for. I would gladly go to work for Chris again.”

    Vincent Andolina, Alpharma

    “I worked with Chris when he was Art Director - Labeling and Packaging at Alpharma. Among his many qualities, Chris’ most impressive and unique strength is his dedication to continuous improvement, learning, and staying current with state-of-the-art (no pun intended) developments in the field. That strength is key to achieving excellence and successfully implementing cost-effective solutions. Even at that point in his career, Chris could easily have rested on his laurels and been quite successful simply recycling solutions that had worked in the past. Among Chris’ many other strengths are his intelligence, wisdom, creativity, work ethic, and razor-sharp wit. In summary, Chris exemplifies excellence, and is a pleasure to work with.”

    Michael Gig Coleman, Alpharma

    “If Chris had a specialty at Alpharma, I’d say it would have been understanding customers’ needs. He was often able to meet a unique design challenge with with just the right innovative tweak. Within the confines of generic pharmaceutical labeling, that is no small task. Chris also kept the department humming. We churned out a lot of work there, and Chris kept it all running smoothly.”

    Jim Kozlowski, Cadmus Communications

    “Chris and I worked closely together at Cadmus. We adjusted work flows accordingly and tried to help further some of the other artists abilities in the Adobe Suite programs with weekly training. Chris was a terrific leader and I enjoyed working with him.”
