Graphic Design Services

This world needs better design, and I'm taking on the challenge one client at a time.

My clients are diverse, and I have found that the best first step for a good design is to listen. My responsibility is to make sure that the client's vision and my understanding of that vision are one in the same. Without understanding the client's needs, a good design still fails.

 

Secondly, my job is to help with ideation. I enjoy developing ideas and seeing them through to fruition.

The marriage of art and text to convey a particular message and feeling is the very definition of graphic design. It is at the heart of my designs for the client.

Badgerfest is a local event celebrating poetry and music and the life of Badger Clark, South Dakota's first poet laureate. After designing the logo, I designed a poster for the event that paid homage to Hatch Show Print. 9th Street Designs was happy to assist with the designs and the merch.

My love of vintage ephemera was expressed with these three posters I was commissioned to design by Siouxland Heritage Museums and marketed at the Old Court House Museum gift shop. They follow the style of the WPA posters of the '30s and '40s and are influenced by the Art Deco movement.

Our home in the Cathedral Historic District in Sioux Falls became the subject of another design project.

The Art Deco-influenced design (left) was the idea that sprang from my wife looking for a "fresh" look to the family Christmas postcard in 2018.

I've been fortunate to connect with many area organizers and running clubs.

 

I sometimes put pen to paper to create illustrations for logos and t-shirts designs.

 

Some of my design efforts and products support good causes, such as these running buffs (right) donated to Girls on the Run. Thanks in part to Embe and the Sioux Falls Running Club.

Many of my designs come from working with local gifts shops looking for unique local flare. These designs find themselves on stickers, mugs, t-shirts and posters.

A logo is important to building YOUR business brand. I take logo creation seriously.
