excels at providing design services from concept to final product. The initial concept work is really the heart of most jobs and it holds the most value for the time put into it. The conception of the ideas to be utilized in the job go toward determining every aspect of the job.
I am professionally trained in Digital Graphic Design, Illustration, Drawing and Painting and can create various techniques, styles, moods and themes in order to get the job done.
For some jobs I can provide a "ballpark" cost estimate during the initial consultation. For other jobs I can work with a client's budget to gauge how much graphic detail to utilize or not in order to stay within the budget.
On all jobs, I work transparently with clients by providing email samples that include the date, the time spent and what exactly I did, so that over time the client comes to understand both the process and how long things take. The client is always aware of how much time is being spent and therefore what the job cost is as the job evolves. This allows us to work precisely towards finished artwork without any guessing or assumptions.
My job as a designer is to listen carefully to the client and to clearly establish what their needs are. JB Pictures Design creates graphic design that both works for the client's needs and that is aesthetically pleasing to the client. My goal is to satisfy my clients 100%.
"Working with Joseph was a wonderful experience! He helped me figure out what I wanted my logo
to express about my business, and then developed those concepts into an amazing finished product. I love my logo so much that I got a tattoo of it... I am definitely committed to my business' new look! I get compliments on my logo and newly designed business cards all the time. Not only am I completely thrilled with the finished product, but I am also impressed with how fun, fast, and affordable the entire process was!" —Laurel Scarioni, CPDT-KA, CNWI Pawsitive Results Critter Academy
"Hi Joseph, last year it became obvious to me that I needed a new logo but instead of going to a professional, I took a shortcut and had a logo designed online. What a mistake and a waste of money. Luckily I met you. Working with you has been a joy. You not only designed a logo but also helped me with branding for Facebook, business cards and banners
. You listened to what I wanted and needed but yet gave valuable input when needed. You worked efficiently and always met deadlines. Thank you again for all of your creative input. I look forward to working with you again in the future." —Chris, owner Chris Kittredge Photography.com
"Hey Joseph, a quick but heartfelt note of appreciation to you for the latest round of brochures
! We received them on Thursday, and I think they are the best brochures that we have done to date – not just you and I, but LEAPNOW – back to our early days." —Sam Bull, Executive Director LEAPNOW.org: Transforming Education
