Visual Communications

Sometimes graphic design is called “visual communications,” a term that emphasizes its function of giving form—e.g., the design of a book, advertisement, logo, or website—to information.  Graphic design, the art and profession of selecting and arranging visual elements—such as typography, images, symbols, and colors—to convey a message to an audience.  An important part of the designer’s task is to combine visual and verbal elements into an ordered and effective whole. Graphic design is therefore a collaborative discipline: writers produce words and photographers and illustrators create images that the designer incorporates into a complete visual communication.

As a visual artsit, my most recent inspirations come from the vast amounts of artistic expression voiced in the desert of Burning Man. I’m also heavily influenced by the visionary works of Alex Grey, Android Jones, and Amanda Sage. I provide specialized creative design and printing services for all kinds of projects – both large and small. Please explore some examples of my work and if you have any questions or ideas, give me a call at 303-475-6137 or contact me here. I look forward to collaborating with you!
