Most Appropriate

By that heading, I mean to say that I'm the most appropriate candidate for [enter whatever job it is I'm talking to you about]. The following is a collection of shameless, self-promotional rants. I recommend quickly scanning the text and then skipping to the visual stuff! Once you have achieved maximum satisfaction, please contact me for further instructions.

Come to think of it, even if you're not fully satisfied, contact me for further instructions.

The big idea is for you to contact me. Does that come across as a little needy?!

Most Improved

Not every project happens from the ground up. In fact, most of the designs that I've done have been re-designs or the next generation of a previous work. Most of my successful clients already have an established business — in other words, products that already work. They are simply looking to improve on what they already have to take their business or idea to the next level. That's where I come in! Here are a few before-and-after shots to illustrate what I mean by 'going to the next level.'

Most Faithful

While I try not to be a control freak, I've been known to maintain a certain level of consistency in details and execution of ideas. We've all had assignments where the original concept got diluted so much that it lost its original impact. Here are some examples that — for one reason or another — were unharmed by the approval and production process.

Most Bodacious

I don't design for the sake of design. If you want a design that serves no function, I'm the wrong guy for the job. However, there are those times that, due to the subject matter or vision of the people involved, a designer gets a chance to work on something that can look beautiful as well as serving its function as a product. The following are some great opportunities I have had to do just that.

Most Educational

School taught me design theory, design history and design communication. (And a few other things that don't relate to this conversation.) The most practical stuff I've learned, however, I've learned on the job. From my first print job as an intern, to dealing with those seemingly impossible clients who have a hard time communicating their needs, a few of my projects have taught me the kind of lessons that one can only learn by experiencing them first-hand. Here are some of them.

Most Successful

The success of a project is usually measured by the objectives and creative vision that are determined at the beginning of the project. Success is a direct reflection of the business goals of the client combined with the realities of budget, resources, time and a willingness to take risks. For the sake of this presentation, I will define success with a more internal definition: Did we exceed the clients' expectations, given their constraints and their goals combined with ours?

Most Unappreciated

Not all great ideas make it to the market. That's not to say that they're all bad or impractical by nature. Maybe there was a misstep in the process or a business objective was poorly defined at first. Or maybe there was no funding left to finish the job. The following is some of my work that was either a pitch or work that never got beyond the concept stage.
