Welcome to my blog! I’m using this to showcase recent work and to write about what inspires me. The kind of work I do – graphic design for print and digital media – changes and expands according to my clients’ needs, and so I’m hoping that this blog will allow me to post work of a wide variety, providing descriptions and links where relevant, and to link to the inspiration around me.


I delight in playing with type and images and making the world a prettier and more user-friendly place.

I do a wide variety of visual design – this includes websites, advertising, branding, brochures, business cards, catalogs, digital art, editing, emails, flash animation, greeting cards, icons, instructional design, logos, letterhead, marketing material, packaging & postcards & presentations, signage, titles, websites, zine design – basically, everything from A through Z.
