Looking for the perfect solution to your design problem? You could go to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat to the land where the Bong Tree grows, but you will have to pay a shilling to a pig for his nose ring and eat mince and quince with a runcible spoon. So perhaps the better option is to hire a designer, like me.

experience -- ikˈspi(ə)rēəns, noun

• the knowledge or skill acquired by experience over a period of time, esp. that gained in a particular profession by someone at work: wise women whose experience could be called upon | designers with the necessary experience.

• an event or occurrence that leaves an impression on someone: the design process has been a learning experience.

1. formal education & related jobs -- Design jobs, being my own boss, learning all the ins and outs of computer software to aid in print and web design, junior designer for Kathy Hart in Raleigh, NC, assistant editor and designer at Critique Magazine, American History BA and art classes at Columbia University, design and art classes at St Louis Community Colleges and Penn State, in-house designer at a St. Louis copy shop, jill-of-all-trades at an old school print shop while the industry was changing from film to digital, et al…

2. life & observational experience -- Many habitation locations, family, kids, friends, novels and news, nature and a slow walk on a rainy day, nonsense poetry and all sorts of music, swimming, cats, tomatoes, chaos, art, you name it…

So contact me today to find out how we can put all that experience to good use to start making sense out of all the nonsense and bring your design project safely back to port.
