Once upon a time, a teenage son sat on a hightop stool. Waxed galleys of type hung along the edges of the work-counter, non-repo blue pen in hand, xacto blade at the ready … he worked a keyline board showing an inside spread to a formalwear catalog. His father’s print brokerage had expanded into layout and design.
With an investment in a Macintosh computer, Aldus Pagemaker, and a Laserwriter 3000 … they could set type at 200%, print out a laser copy, than go into the darkroom and stat it down at 50% to create professional-grade type on-site. A miracle of efficiency.
So began my journey along this path of layout, design, typography, retouching, and copywriting.
In the spring of ’97, with two children and a third on the way, I made the leap of faith to open my own firm.
I specialize in working with entrepreneurially-led companies with quality products/services that want horse-power on projects without the overhead drag of permanent staffing.
