Lots of people today claim to be "designers," but they're really just technologists.
From time to time I need a traditional, trained, experienced designer/art director.
The real thing. Not just someone who owns a Mac and some software.
Any of you know of any of them locally?
Yep, Len and Donna are great. I was hoping for additional independents sources.
I'm not sure if this will be of help because I don't know exactly what your needs entail, but check out this person: http://www.jmohrstudio.com/index.html
Her name is Josie, and here is her email address: graficjam @ yahoo.com
Send me a private message if you want her phone number.
Beautiful work ... but I'm talking about someone who can design marketing materials. I should have been clearer in my post.
She's old school (in a good way!) and has worked in design. If you want to call her and tell her what you need, she can tell you if she can do it. I don't want to post her number publicly though, so feel free to email me if you think you want to give it a shot :)
Thanks -- no need to post here -- easy to see all the contact info on the site.
I need to clarify what I'm asking for. I do marketing and need designers for marketing materials. People who have worked in ad agencies or design shops and have learned what makes good design. That kind of designer.
You could contact the local AdFed and see if they could hook you up with good, local talent. Lots of good, talented folks are part of this organization.
Thanks - hadn't thought of that.
