Credo

I began designing professionally for the Web and print in 2006. Working for numerous clients with very different needs and demands, I have learned that design does sell and that style indeed is everything.

However, I believe that what the audience really want is information. It is my prime objective to deliver that information in an efficient and visually pleasing way. In doing so, I preferably follow the modernist principle 'less is more'.

If you are interested in my services, I will be glad to perform a free and non-binding analysis of your needs and propose a suitable solution.
