I LOVE GRAPHICS! + I LOVE ART! = I LOVE GRAPHIC ARTS!!
And I LOVE sinking my teeth into a juicy design/development project!
"There's a secret world that I enter into when I'm in design mode...it's a place that feels cozy to me. Truthfully, it's a dark, yet very interesting and creative place for me. I like it...A LOT! This tendency of mine to crawl inside of myself for a week or two...or more...during this phase of a project makes me rather particular about who I commit to working with on a creative level; I believe that my clients deserve every ounce of my creativity, and I promise to deliver just that."
Through years of trial and error I have discovered that the right match for a creative project is a MUST...or the experience will be less than what it deserves to be, and the process often ends up feeling stale, too stubborn or just meh. Now, personally I'm of the belief that art should NEVER feel stale or be just meh (and the stubborn part is just straight up maddening for everyone involved). I know FOR SURE that in order for me to be able to produce the kind of art that represent my clients - specifically the story that they want to tell about their business/service/livelihood/passion through the use of graphics and/or web design - in the manner that it demands and deserves that I must, first and foremost, understand, respect and accept the ebb and flow of my own creative process. So, instead of resisting or trying to force things, flowing with it allows the experience to be much more organic, real and satisfying - from both a business and personal perspective. That said, not everyone wants to allow the creative process to flow in such an unbound, natural manner; some people more "straight to business," for that to feel good to them...I get it! And, that's perfect, too! I totally respect that....AND that is exactly why choices abound in life! Everyone gets to decide what works for them. So, my "RULE" is to not force creativity - or anything, really - just to get sucked into some self-created "the sky is falling" drama. The core of the matter is that most creativity is just not receptive to such grandiose pressure, anyway.
Maybe that thought process is something that appeals to your business senses - maybe not. Either way I promise you this: if we're not jiving I will never try to force it in any way shape or form. And neither should you! In business or in life. It's as simple as that to me.
ALL OF THAT SAID, when the chemistry is right and we're liking the way one another thinks A LOT...then BAM! THAT'S some pretty damn creative graphic art, design and website work/content in the making right there! And, once we get to that point...WOW! That's when the fun begins! One of the coolest things about working with such a confident, secure and authentic clientele base is the amazing inside look into their worlds that it grants me. (It feels almost voyeuristic, to be honest. But not in a creepy way!) MAN!!! I have learned a lot of cool shit about some of the most interesting businesses and industries via my graphic art and website design work; it's the ones that don't seem like they're going to be interesting initially that end up being totally compelling! Which makes perfect sense, actually; it's the people behind the businesses that makes them interesting, not necessarily the industry itself! Which is also fan-freakin-tastic, and brings me right back around to why I'm so super particular about who it is that I decide to do my creative work with.
So, if after all of that, if you are interested in working with me on a website design/graphic art project then drop me an email. I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU!!
We will have an AMAZING time getting to know each other! That is FO SHO!
