Hand sketching is a practiced skill. I pride myself in the fact that I am traditionally trained. The ball point pen and felt tips are my favorite to sketch with. There really is something magical about creating an image, on a blank piece of paper, right in front of someone.

Every idea starts with a thumbnail and grows into rendering that visually expresses to idea in almost tangible reality.
The diversity of graphics today are immense. They are visual images or designs and can be functional or just aesthetic. They can use typography, pictures, geometric forms, or a combination, but what ever form is chosen, it will enhance your product and most importantly brand your idea with an identity all its own.
“a picture is worth a thousand words“
Sometimes an old phrase from the past comes to mind when creating. This one is not to be taken for granted. No one wants their idea to look unbranded. Let me help brand your idea with a name and image, that will express your idea visually.
Digital Sketching/ illustrations
From hand sketches, comes digital refinement. This is where my ideas really come to life! Once a design idea is created, it needs to go through a process to make sure it is proportional, looks good and does what it says it will.
Industrial design/3D Modeling
“Industrial Design is the professional practice of designing products used by millions of people around the world every day. Industrial designers not only focus on the appearance of a product, but also on how it functions, is manufactured and ultimately the value and experience it provides for users. Every product you have in your home and interact with is the result of a design process and thousands of decisions aimed at improving your life through design.” IDSA
Creating a 3D model of an idea is essential today. It saves time and money spent on unnecessary revisions and molds etc. The first step in this process is to generate a 3D file for printing or machining. My 3D software of choice is Modo, by Luxology. One look at my work and I’m sure you’ll understand why.
