I've made websites since 1998. Many of them aren't around anymore. Whether to inform or entertain, I prefer to make interfaces that are interesting. Since 2003 I've maintained sites for the CDC, primarily this one. You know the drill - give me concept, content, and target audience; I give you mockups and/or live cross-platform, accessible pages with good SEO. If Adobe makes it I've probably used it.
A worthy logo should be more than text with layer effects. Every logo begins with black and white drawings, and if I use a font it is always modified. Fun projects can be playful, but for a serious logo I make literally hundreds of sketches to create a memorable, scalable brand that is truly unique, drawing from a lifelong study of letterforms and symbolism.
Original solutions are hard to come by, and simple ones even moreso. I'm proud to say I've had a handful in my career so far.
