Delivering quality results that matter – Creating a 360° Visual Design Experience
Originally from the east coast, my name is Rick and I am
a Visual / Graphic Designer here in Los Angeles.
Not one to rest on my laurels, I continually strive to discover my creative potential, continuously exploring new opportunities and challenges; keeping my work fresh, modern, aesthetically pleasing and engaging.
Working with various styles and techniques gives me ultimate inspiration; both handmade and digital media gives my craftsmanship an unmistakable, creative edge.
I can easily jump between various media-types while working on projects - my expertise includes: branding, typography, print design, photo-manipulation, interactive design and illustration, as well as multimedia, animation, web design and photography.
Downtime favorites! Interests that get me pumped and recharged: drawing & painting, learning about wellness, jamming tunes with my guitar, collecting vinyl records, exploring the city, specialty eateries - craft beers, the outdoors and watching movies.
