So you like my design work and want to work together on a project? Send me an email at email@example.com with details about your specific project and budget. If you’ve never worked with a designer before, please watch my video How to Hire a Freelance Graphic Designer for information about what to include in the initial email.
Things I do:
Logo/identity design, book layouts, website design, music Packaging, poster design, t-shirt design, photo manipulation and restoration, video editing
Things I do not do:
Website coding, complicated illustration (though I know several illustrators I can refer you to), tattoo design (too permanent!), printing (I will send you completed files online)
I love projects that are firmly planted in nerd and online culture, though I will do more traditional work as well. If you have a unique project you’d like me to work on that I haven’t mentioned here, please still feel free to send me an email so we can discuss it!

If you have further questions that aren’t answered below, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How much do you charge for freelance work?
I can’t answer that until I know more about the project you’re proposing. Check out the video I made about How to Hire a Freelance Designer and then send me an email at email@example.com with all the details about your project for a quote.
What programs do you design in?
I use the Adobe CS6 suite, mostly Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I work on a Macbook Pro.
How long does it take you to finish a project?
That depends on the project! If you have a specific date you need a finished product by, just let me know and I will do my best to accomodate it. Keep in mind that rush jobs will cost more.
Why won’t you code my website?
I do not do any coding work, simply because I only know the very basics. However, I do know several web developers who I have worked with in the past who I am happy to refer you to.
