I am an established freelance designer in Chico, CA supplying quality graphic design and unsurpassed service to the northern California region and beyond. Originally focusing on only print media, I have spent the last few years expanding my skills into the realm of web design. Through learning what makes web design “look” good, I’ve also become proficient in the coding side of web design (the 101011101010). My understanding and skills in technologies such as PHP, MySQL and jQuery (and of course, HTML and CSS) allow me to work with other designers and coders and “speak the lingo” and solve design/code conflicts quickly.
A good designer has to design for the future. Your business cards don’t need to be trendy now, they need to work for you in the future too. Your website isn’t just about now, its about how your going to use it in the future and what visitors are going to see and think about your company. I blend print design (everything from tshirts to flyers) and web design/coding to truly offer your FULL SERVICE DESIGN.
A good designer has to understand people (what I call good marketing). They have to understand your target market and how they will likely respond to your advertising (yes, a website and even a business card are advertising). They have to understand cost/benefit of the production and execution of the marketing plan. A good designer is also an excellent marketer and understands the needs of the business, not just what is “good design.”
I wanted to take the time to tell you how truly talented you are and how appreciative I am for the patience and diligence you show in your work. I know I come at you with last minute jumbles of information and heap a ton of only partial information on you in sporadic phone calls. You always come through with exceptional quality and speed. I am shocked when I look at some of your 1st drafts and have no or very little changes to mention, I am a VERY picky person. I am (I could give you a ton of people to back me up on this) a very difficult person for most people to work with, but you make it seem easy and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate your work and effort.
