The Latest Glow . . .
I am proud to announce that I was selected and commissioned by the Anacortes Arts Festival to produce their 50th Anniversary poster for the 2011 festival. I’ve receivied great comments on the poster, including this request from one of my clients – an 85-year old (going on 35) retired scientist:
“Hi Bob: Your 2010 Poster for the Anacortes Art Festival is my favorite poster ever. My wake-up ritual begins with viewing it on my computer. Can I PLEASE buy a full-size print? — Addictedly, Dorothy”
Creativity at Work
What I bring to the creative table is over 20 years of experience working outside the box, inside the box – and building the box! I have a wide range of creative skills in a variety of media, but my strong suit is creativity and concept.
To stand apart from the crowd, good design is more important than ever. It is not enough to ‘make something look pretty.’ Form follows function: I like to make sure that the internet visitor’s experience of the web design is smooth, intuitive and rational to navigate.
Design should support the communication of ideas, not swamp it. Elaborate ideas need to be conveyed succinctly; content needs to be distilled down to its most clearly communicable form. And once you’ve considered and integrated all these aspects, why not make it art? There is always beauty and grace available in the presentation. And that is what I can bring to the creative table for your print or web design project.
