about 4wdesign

Welcome to my blog! I’m using this to showcase recent work and to write about what inspires me. The kind of work I do – graphic design for print and digital media – changes and expands according to my clients’ needs, and so I’m hoping that this blog will allow me to post work of a wide variety, providing descriptions and links where relevant, and to link to the inspiration around me.


I delight in playing with type and images and making the world a prettier and more user-friendly place.

I do a wide variety of visual design – this includes websites, advertising, branding, brochures, business cards, catalogs, digital art, editing, emails, flash animation, greeting cards, icons, instructional design, logos, letterhead, marketing material, packaging & postcards & presentations, signage, titles, websites, zine design – basically, everything from A through Z.

To see samples, scroll through the main page, or click on various categories on the left. To learn more about me, see my linked in profile. And to see more samples of my work, see 4wdesign.com. Thanks for visiting!
