I want to work with you! Let me help you, your team or your clients get the most from their visual communication. Whether you are a small or big business, mom and pop or an agency looking for some extra help, let's talk.
As a graphic designer and art director with 20 years of experience, I have worked with a wide variety of companies from Fortune 500s to sole-proprietors just getting started. I have extensive experience with print design and production, identity programs, marketing collateral, packaging, trade show graphics, and photo retouching. I am well versed and comfortable working with existing design standards or creating new ones. Along with print experience, I also have a background in developing web graphics, e-mail blasts and web ads, as well as a good knowledge of HTML and CSS.
Currently I work and live in the Denver, Colorado area as an independent contractor/freelance designer, commercial and fine art photographer. I consult and work on various projects with small business owners, ad agencies, marketing and design firms to develop projects with time and budget sensitive needs. Have a look at my work below or if you like have a look at my design or retouching PDF portfolios. If you're interested you can see some of my personal photography work at rouseyphotography.com
