A Graphic Artist Without the Artist’s Ego
No ego — I just want to do great work for my clients.
My clients (who I thank for not calling me “Four Eyes”) range from large organizations and corporations to small and mid-sized firms. They include companies in the consumer goods, manufacturing, hi-tech, and business-to-business marketplaces. I’m experienced working with non-profits, colleges, hospitals and advertising/marketing firms as well.

Clients value me for my thinking, problem-solving, creative skills and experience. They also like me because I’m dependable and save them money with fair pricing and my ability to use my experience to keep projects within budgets. Mostly they like that I don’t let my ego get in the way of doing what’s best for them.
Graphic Designer with an Eye for Detail
I keep a careful eye on thingsAttention to detail is key for Guy With Glasses – some clients think I’m wearing magnifying glasses because I keep such a careful eye on things. I’m always pushing to make projects better, ensuring files are properly prepped for printing, following up with writers about typos, fine-tuning creative concepts, and keeping to schedules.
The result of all this is that I’m easy to work with: because I learned that my real job is to make my client’s job easier. Think. Solve. Design. These are the foundations on which I’ve built my approach to communicating my clients’ messages uniquely and effectively. It all pays off when I see your goals being met, your brand being built, your product or service selling, or prospects responding to your message.
Think. Solve. Design. I’m Your Go To Guy.
John Devanski and I have been together for more than thirty magazines, not to mention annual reports and copious other promotional collateral. That’s more than a decade, way more than 60 rounds of edits, and probably as many cups of coffee.
At the risk of having to share John with other clients, I will say this. John is an artist. He is a cogitator. He is a consumer of my words. He ingests our stories, so he knows how to translate them to design. And, technically his work is pristine. I have never had an issue with his files on press.
But the real reason that John and I have been together so long is this: His Babci is a fabulous cook and sometimes I reap the benefits.
