Why am I an RGD?I believe the RGD designation is a reflection of my commitment to a high standard of professionalism in my design practice, and my enthusiasm for graphic design as a field of cultural endeavour.
Why am I a designer?Design is my methodology for satisfying both my deep curiosity about our world and my desire to contribute to positive change within it.
Why should you hire me?I work closely and collaboratively with clients to craft custom design solutions that are as considerate of the conceptual and cultural dimensions of the work as with the minutest details of production.
