Last, but not least, here behind door number three lurks my “Designer” page. This is where business gets done. Here is where I get to take all of that time, energy, creativity and spend them for someone else benefit — developing someone else’s marketing concept or solving someone else’s communication, or packaging problem.
I like puzzles of all sorts, and I like problem-solving. It scratches a different sort of creative “itch” that I have. But real-world graphic design is inherently an area of collaboration and compromise. It often truly tests one’s altruistic spirit trying to find just the right balance between client need, budget, and my own aesthetic sense of what constitutes good design . . . and inner desire to do my very best no matter how big or small (or frustrating) the job.
My portfolio page contains a variety of work . . . decades worth. I’ve culled and curated the collection to display my capability for creative graphic and verbal problem-solving (yes I write copy too). A good graphic professional must wear a lot of hats. You can’t just be good at one thing, or excel in one area, and simply be on-time and under budget to be successful. You have to be a artist, illustrator, writer, editor, photographer, stylist, marketeer, and stay well-versed in the latest technology, and practice.
On top of that very tall order, you have to care about and get along with all sorts of people. I do my best. We are all on this tiny blue sphere for such a very, very short time. Too often we miss what’s most important and basic to being human, simply enjoying the ride and sharing the experience.
