Graphic Design, Creative Direction & Photography

Who am I?

I'm an old-school-guy, who loves roots reggae and 90s Hip-Hop, graffiti and architecture. Graphic novels and great movies inspire me and I'm cool, working with a team of like-minded creatives. My work has grown from traditional media to digital platforms, media strategies as well as photography and a bunch of other fresh skills. Need some stuff? - hook me up!

Skills

Logo Concept + Design

I've had a blast, providing clients in various industries with unique concepts and logos. You might need one, too.

Layout + Illustration

I eat ilustrations and layouts for all kinds of print and digital media for breakfast - more or less.

Web Design

I speak HTML & CSS fluently ... so don't let me go all style="text-transform:uppercase" ON YOU.

eBooks

You want your publication on a Kindle, on iBooks or any other reader? - No problemo! I'll make it happen.

Photography

Equipped with a bunch of lovely lenses and a good eye, I'm up for fashion, architecture, landscapes and more.

Lettering

Whether DC or Marvel, kids stuff or graphic novels - I'll make your heros speak up with more than Comic Sans.
