years of technical and fine art experience
The ability to quickly translate your ideas into attractive printed materials. I meet directly with the client as well as handle all aspects of the design; from illustration, scans, image-editing to production friendly files, all under one roof. A strong background in TTB label requirements helps ensure that compliance issues are addressed before you submit.

18 years of hands-on experience at a major Central California-based printer. Job related tasks included digital prepress and label and collateral material design associated with the wine industry. During my time at the printer I gained the real production knowledge that isn't common to many freelance designers in the market today. I also became very familiar with TTB (formerly BATF) compliance regulations governing label structure.
