I have had what is called a ‘portfolio career’, but instead of running sequentially, my careers existed simultaneously. So my design has been continually influenced by developments in my artwork and vice versa.
What I like best about graphic design is the process of working together with my client toward a moment when the final solution is reached. That hit of recognition when we realize that we’re ‘there’ makes this work so rewarding.
Hand-drawn and timeless
I work with design software, but hand-drawn elements remain an important characteristic of my designs.
The logos and identities I help create lean toward classical rather than trendy, and therefore endure. In the 35 years I have been a designer, few of the companies I have done work for have redesigned their logos.
