I prefer collaborators over clients.
My approach is to work with you to bring voice and meaning to your project. Effective design is more than color, shape, and typography, it's also effective storytelling. Logos, websites, magazines, and campaigns need to communicate the right message to your audience in a language often unique to you and them. I will work with you to understand your business goals as well as who the audience is. Until there is a fundamental understanding of your strategy, I will not deliver a design direction based on assumption, guess work, fashion, or hubris.
Here's the process
Understanding of the goals, requirements and audience
What are the problems, and how are we going to solve them
What are the solutions and what do they look like
Make it happen and track the success
