Print & Web Design Portfolio Based on Big Ideas
“Think. Solve. Design.” is the consistent thread in the Guy With Glasses portfolio. I research, ask questions, and study competition and markets. The result is smart design that is much more than other designers' “pretty picture” approach. It’s “Big Idea” creativity coupled with marketing solutions. Clients have learned to trust my 20+ years of experience and technical expertise in both print and web design. It’s saved their budgets (and jobs) by anticipating problems before they begin. That’s why I’m their “go-to guy” for graphic design; this portfolio is the proof.
I like to think of John as a thinking person's graphic designer. Whether it's an annual report, or a simple brochure, or even a coffee-table book, he brings an intelligence and perceptiveness that emerges in his design. It's like, I'm the word person, and he's the design person, and we come from different places, but we are both absolutely in synch, on the exact same page. He's not precious about his design, any more than I'm precious about my words. What you get with him is always I mean always professional, beautiful, understated but distinctive, right on message. He can be mildly annoying about pursuing every last detail of a project, but in the end, he's well worth it. I recommend him highly.

A Graphic Designer Who Dives Into Your Business
Thinking and solving begins with getting involved in your business by researching and asking questions. Getting to know your customers and your market is the basis of effective communication. That’s what you’ll see in all the work in my portfolio – it’s more than just some attractive visuals grabbed from a stock photo site. The work is well thought out, there is a Big Idea and a solution to a marketing challenge.
