Consulting & Tutoring Services

Consulting

I’m happy to talk with you about upcoming projects and give guidance, whether you are looking for me to create them or you intend to design them yourself. With 20 years in design and prepress environments, I have the knowledge to help you work smarter and more efficiently when preparing your design and print projects.

Avoiding costly mistakes and delays in production can save you $$ and ensure a project is completed on time, and on budget. In my many experiences, I have seen what works and what doesn’t in design. I am also an expert in US Postal regulations, and can help you save on postage and raise your deliverability ratings on automated mailings. Contact me today to begin the conversation.

Tutoring in Applications

I have been using the Adobe suite of programs for many years, and have taught classes on InDesign. Recently at the UW, I developed a nine-week training program that followed the Lynda.com InDesign Essentials video tutorials for learning the basics of this fascinating program, with small group meetings to discuss the materials.

I also consider myself an expert Photoshop user and mentor, and am able to do expert-level creation, color correction and photoshop work to images. I know many tricks to get what you need from your photos.

I can also pass on my knowledge and understanding of variable data printing, and list preparation for VDP projects. I am ready to begin helping you spread your message, and be more efficient in your workflow. Contact me about:

  • InDesign
  • Photoshop / Color correction
  • Acrobat / PDF creation
  • Preparing files for printers / CMYK color prep
  • Mailing file prep / Variable data project
  • Design and printing in general
