A little about me

My name is Bob and I am a graphic/web designer located in Northern Illinois. I truly enjoy the craft of designing for all forms of media. I have over 15+ years experience creating artwork for both web and print. I currently work for a very demanding screen print and sign shop in Sterling IL all while freelancing. I'm heavily influenced by retro typography, vintage characters, pin striping, 90s music and graffiti.

I do amazing things for clients

Design

Design and artwork is the lifeblood of my craft. It's more than just "being pretty"- It's about using text, images, and infographics to communicate ideas, and sell products or services.

Web

The internet has revolutionized the way we find and share information. For businesses, a web presence has become a fundamental part of success. But are all web sites the same, and what is so significant about my web presence? I'm glad you asked...

Branding & Marketing

Does your current company need to be rebranded or are you a new start up and need help branding yourself? As a client, you acquire a reliable partnership with a dedicated, experienced and creative that have helped private and public entities build their brand and maximize visibility in the marketplace.

High quality graphic design

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving using one or more of typography, photography, and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. The use typography, visual arts and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), wayfinding or environmental design, advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.


Professional web design

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include; interface design; authoring, including standartised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.


Branding and marketing

A brand is a name, term, design, or feature that distinguishes an organization or product from its rivals in the eyes of the customer. Branding is a set of marketing and communication methods that help to distinguish a company or products from competitors, aiming to create a lasting impression in the minds of customers. The key components that form a brand's toolbox include a brand's identity, brand communication (such as logos and trademarks), brand awareness, brand loyalty, and various branding strategies.
