I love design (and the art of visual communication, for that matter). I love the creativity of it. I love the challenge that each new project brings. I love the problem solving elements of a new campaign. What’s the best way to tell that new narrative? What’s the most effective way to reach that new audience?
As I said above, good design isn’t simply a pretty picture, it’s an effective one. Whether this is introducing a new collaborative platform for my team (Basecamp in 2010), rolling out a communications campaign to help our audience understand a new program initiative (IDP 2.0), redesigning a website, or simply asking why a publication or collateral is needed at all, I’ve been making a habit of figuring out how to make things more effective.
But I’m not all about design. I have a family (you can read a lot more about them on our blog, You, Me, and Audrey, although I can’t take credit for any of the actual posts). I like sports (baseball and football, a little hockey because my friends are crazy about it). I watch silly television shows like Survivor and Mad Men (yes, Don Draper’s saga definitely qualifies as “silly”). I’ve recently gotten into rock climbing. Oh, and my wife bought me a guitar for Father’s Day and the tips of my fingers are still upset with her. I like to try new things, like make videos of my daughter because what else are we going to do with all that video footage. I’m self-taught. I love to learn. I’m a hard worker.
All of the above (and so much more) go into who I am, and what makes me the designer and communicator that I am today. Hope that gives you a better glimpse into who I am. If you want more, email me. We’ll chat.
