I started designing at an early age. My first business card design was in an industrial arts class in the 7th grade, but it wasn't until I entered the Applied Art and Design program at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo that I truly found my calling...the field of graphic design and illustration. After graduating, I headed for the bright lights and big city of Los Angeles. After a few trials and tribulations, I finally got my foot in a door. Founded in 1979, Intralink Film Graphic Design, created by the late great iconic movie poster designer, Anthony Goldschmidt, had just hit upon a unique idea – marry both the film and print campaigns for major motion pictures. I was hired in 1982 and the first movie campaign I ever worked on was "E.T." – not a bad place to begin. Over the next 9 years, I contributed to over 69 movie campaigns and had 48 finished one sheet campaigns, with an assortment of main titles thrown in for good measure. I specialized in creating unique letterforms and logos that involved some type of imagery and weren't dependent on a particular font. Most of my movie logos were hand-inked by me or some of the best hand letterers in the business. It's a lost art. After moving to Sacramento, I started my own graphic design freelance business, hopped onto the digital revolution, had a taste of agency work with 14 years at Seraphein Beyn Advertising. I also helped grow a local exhibit design business from our first four walls and up, with one of our most recent exhibits traveling to China. I continue to seek out unique opportunities or clients and am excited to find new ways that my design skills can be applied. Enjoy the work, I know I do. Oh yeah, and enjoy every sandwich as well.
