The CREATIVE ORCHARD features various textures, detailed illustrations, simple compositions, rich colors and bold imagery. I have the ability to create many different styles of designs, from soft elegance to hardcore grunge and everything in between. I have extensive knowledge of all the newest versions of graphic software. To stay in the loop, I continually educate myself about design and marketing developments found in current advertising resources. Over the years, I have been trained in concepting, campaign development, photo shoot direction, photo correction, production, composition, layout, color theory, illustration, typography, printer knowledge and much more!
