Graphic design, be it on the Internet, the printed page or other mediums, is the meeting of creativity with communication. As a designer I strive to make sure that the message is complemented by the design, and never overpowered by it. Call me a modernist, but grids are the work horse of the industry.

The over powering design of many web sites and publications make the message second to the design. No matter how cool a design may be, the content must be King, if the reader is to come back for more. My goal in providing design for clients is to assure that their message is presented in the best possible way, to get people to read, understand and remember is top priority.
