Exhibit Designer/Fabricator

I've designed and fabricated numerous displays and exhibits using a wide array of various materials for many years.   My building skills include a knowledge of the proper selection of available material choices to optomize the best results for various applications that require attention to specific restrictive uses of potentially harmful materials that can ill-effect artifacts.   My building skills include a profound knowledge of the proper application of various power tools and their capability.

Silkscreen Printer

The basis upon which I built my studio; which has primarily been geared to the exhibit and display industry in providing signage systems (and occasionally) some very unique and specific products needed via the silk screen process of printing being incorporated into the overall scheme of things.   Nowdays, with the availability of large format digital printing on just about any substrate imaginable, the silk screen printing process has become something of resembling the dinosaur in specialized printing techniques. Therefore, with some reservation regarding my love for the rewarding challenges that the silk screen process printing offers, I now am more devoted into designing with digital graphics and allowing large format digital printers to supply me with a quicker, better and more cost effective product than I once was able to produce on my own.

Computer Generated Graphic Art Design

I've been designing graphics for the exhibitry industry using an array of Adobe CS2 tools since they became available. I  also work in other programs, (ie. Quark, PowerPoint), however, my main strength are attributed to my knowledge of use within the AdobeCS2 Toolbox - focusing primarily with working in PhotoShop.
