Creativity and Design That's Tailored To You!

About

For as long as I can remember I've always loved creating art. It didn't matter whether it was doodling on a piece of paper or creating something digitally. I love the process of creating something that didn't exist before, and breathing life into a project that delights the client is even more rewarding.

While my style and abilities may have evolved over the years, my core principles have not. Simply put, my goal is to deliver a product that is eye-catching, memorable, affordable, and most importantly, makes the client happy. Feel free to browse my portfolio to see both past and present examples of my work.

My Process:
1. Brainstorming

This is where we discuss any ideas you have as far as the project goes (what you’re looking for in regards to colors, imagery, lettering, what type of audience you’re trying to reach, your goals with this project) .This is how I try to get a feel for what your vision is to determine the best way possible to bring it to life. During this phase I may also offer some of my own ideas based on your project concept.

2. Design

Once we've discussed some ideas, I will work towards putting together rough ideas and see what you think. Once the rough phase gets approved, I move on to a more finalized version of the project. This could consist of imagery, textures, effects, colors, etc. Each step of the way you will be sent samples of the in-progress art to approve or tweak. Before the design process can begin a non-refundable 50% deposit is required.

3. Project Completion

Once the project has been given the final approval, the remaining balance is due. After this is paid the project will be turned over you and/or uploaded to your web hosting. This includes any necessary finished files and does not include the layered source files.

4. Payment Methods

Payment methods accepted are check/money order and PayPal. Each project is priced individually based on the client's needs, therefore you won't see any base prices on this website.

He has a way of getting inside your head and understanding your vision and taking the information you provide to manifest exactly the look and feel you desire. Rick developed the artwork and websites for both of my sites, RaycliffManor.com and HauntBook.com. He also designed the ticket, coupon, club card, poster, banner and billboard print ad and marketing materials for us. I can’t express how critical Rick’s work has been to our marketing and advertising success. Don’t let his affordability fool you! He does not compromise on quality and his work is top notch!
