This is the first in a series of blog posts about some of the key members of the Zarr team. We start with Dave who heads up the graphic design at Zarr.
I’ve been working for Zarr since 2004 - shortly after the first .com bubble burst. I still get as excited to work on projects or design work as I did when I first started, with a few less nerves and a little more experience and skills.
My job in part is sometimes described as “making things pretty” but that’s not all I’m here to do. As a designer, I get to work closely with clients to design the look, feel, layout and other aspects of websites and design work and along with Vicki, our Project Manager would be one of the first to greet and work with you. I’ll also work on artwork and other creative parts of any work we do, whether it’s in print or on screen.
After 17+ years at Zarr and seven years at several design, email, and web companies previously, I’ve developed a deep and wide range of design and computer related skills and experience that I can offer.
I use the latest industry standard tools with decades of experience in software including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, XD and Indesign for any web or print or multimedia related design work. I’ve also many years of experience in User Experience (UX) Design and User Interface (UI) Design which is put to great use when understanding, designing, and presenting website and design ideas. I’m also an experienced photographer so can help with that too, or offer you email design or some 3D work for you.
I can also design and support a broad range of printed design needs you might have. I can offer a complete corporate identity overhaul to help your business stand out and look professional, or if you don’t already have one, we can help develop one with you. We can start with your logo requirements and move on to style guides and build from there depending on your needs including traditional stationery like business cards, folders, flyers, posters, and leaflets.
I look forward to working with existing and new clients and hope to share my experience and skills to create the best and most successful website, multimedia, or printed materials you can be proud of.
