My Talents Are Best Put To Use
on Long-Form Publications.
Long-form is a term used in the design industry to describe multi-page documents. These types are projects are my specialty; whether the final product is printed and/or distributed digitally. Plus, publishing either for print or digitally for tablets; everything from obtaining an ISBN to landing page.
My portfolio focuses primarily in developing marketing communications for business-to-business marketing initiatives, events, non-profits and small business:
E-Books :: White Papers :: Presentations :: Magazines
Marketing Materials :: Web Graphics :: Image Library Management
every project begins with you.
What are your goals for the project?
How can I help you achieve the desired results?
The design collaboration has begun. I put pencil to paper, researching, curating images/colors, and designing composites for your review.
I couldn't resist inserting a euchre or pinochle metaphor. Everything comes together. You've approved the composites, content has been edited... now it's my turn to bring it all together.
Is the message clear? Is it understandable? It is easy to read?
Have we achieved the project's objectives?
Whether your publication will be printed or viewed on a mobile/tablet device, some how it will be touched. An overall positive experience is very important.
