About Mark

The graphic arts industry has changed over the years from one of hand skills to one of rapidly-advancing computer technology and skills. Almost all graphics are created on computers today, with even the remaining hand-created art being converted to digital form before it is printed.

Well-produced sales and collateral materials make your product, service or artwork look better and generate more response for you. I focus in on your project closely, and the work is done on schedule and more accurately the first time. With the high costs of offset printing your project, any error can be a much more expensive mistake is than just the need to redo the work.

There are many reasons to hire a graphics professional to produce your print media. Here are just seven reasons to hire me for that project you’ve been considering.

  • Over 25 years experience as a computer graphic production artist
  • Expert knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, Quark Xpress, and various other graphics programs
  • Print production experience from one color to many colors, paper to fabric to plastic
  • Trapping, ink gain adjustments, image adjustments and other specialized skills
  • Wide variety of project experience, including stationery, brochures, catalogs, CD cover art, packaging, data sheets, display signs, trade show and large-scale banner graphics
  • Strong proofreading skills
  • Crossover photography skills to help improve your image quality
