More About Me
As far back as Brian can remember he has loved art and there were many crayon murals to prove it. Brian received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1986 and set out on a journey in the field of illustration and graphic design. Brian worked on design projects before computers were a tool of the trade. "Back then we had to paste-up art boards with multiple overlays, breath toxic fumes, work in darkrooms and risk our digits to xacto blades... and we loved it!" But times changed and he embraced them and became an enthusiast of the digital age.
Now Brian creates websites that communicate and get results. He is an artist who can explain his passion for good design, while keeping your R.O.I. foremost in mind. He is an artist who knows there is an art to business, and understands applying an artistic sensibility to your communication tools will improve your businesses performance and will help your bottomline.
From early on in Brian’s career, while working with ministries and non-profit organizations, he learned the importance of being a good steward. These organizations had limited resources, but they had to reach the greatest number of people with a life changing message. Today, just as then, his goal is to manage well the resources his clients entrust to him in order to get the greatest return.
Brian provides creative solutions for promoting your products and services. As a result your customers receive the kinds of aesthetically satisfying experiences they’ve come to expect in this fast paced media age.
You are a small business owner who wants a professional look and on target communication tools that rival "The Big Boys." Working closely with the decision-maker rather than doing design by committee allows Brian to get to the heart of the message and be more effective in developing the right tools. Since he’s also a small business owner he can relate to the challenges many entrepreneurs and self-employed individuals face. Understanding their struggles and challenges makes him a good ally.
You recognize the value of thoughtful and well executed design solutions for each component of your marketing plan. Brian’s ideal client hires him not only for creative design solutions, but to help them develop tools that make communicating their ideas, products, and services more efficient.
What Brian’s clients experience as a result of their working relationship is clarity about their message and audience. They are equipped to more effectively communicate with vendors, clients, prospects and employees. Finally, his clients have tools to help build their business as well as a sense of pride regarding their company’s image.
Find out what some of Brian's clients have to say about him.
First impressions are critical, and when it comes to making them the eyes are the first participants. The eyes consume vast amounts of information and relay it to the brain unconsciously. Right or wrong this process allows us to make snap judgements about whether something appeals to us or not. In many cases, this snap judgement is all you will ever receive.
Therefore, good design matters and good communication matters more. Your ability to effectively catch your audiences attention, create a good first impression, and communicate your message is crucial to the life of your business. Brand integrity is very important to the success of any message. If consistency is what makes a brand, inconsistency weakens it. Brian believes that a strong brand is more about image consistency and message than a cool looking logo. If your brand already has a strong presence in your market, Brian will work with you to discover new ways of enhancing what you already have.
However, if your brand is weak, or nonexistent, Brian can help there, too. Each design project that he has worked on has been approached with a simple design philosophy, it has to convey a message in a simple yet intriguing way. Trendy, stylish design without a solid message serves no one.
