I STAND FOR
Designing For Result

Every pixel counts. That is the way I approach each job, and I carry that ethos across an integrated landscape that includes print, digital and video. I have more than a decade of experience, starting with a career in journalism that conditioned me for equal parts speed and quality with little or no mistakes. 

I believe firmly in a minimalistic approach to all design efforts, be it crafting websites, banner advertising, brochures, financial reports or UI/UX. I have worked with small and large businesses, including Westin hotels, Jekyll Island Tourism, Little St. Simons Island, just to name a few. I update my portfolio quite often but you can also visit my site at http://www.horizonadvertising.com.
