Howdy.

I have 25 years of experience designing print collateral, logos, advertising and trade show displays. Custom map-making is also a niche area of expertise – I’m who companies go to when they need a “map guy”. Looking for something that moves or has sound? I also make videos and podcasts. My rates are reasonable, the work exquisite, and turnaround time blazingly fast.

 

What’s with that weird name and logo, anyway?

I have a keen interest (some would call it an obsession) in American history, especially the era from the Gilded Age to the end of World War One. I wanted my logo and tagline to reflect this passion, so I adapted President Woodrow Wilson’s famous statement from his speech to Congress in 1917, urging them to declare war on the Central Powers of Europe. He said that “the world must be made safe for democracy” and I’m doing my best to keep at least my little corner of it safe from bad design. And of course, with this sort of name, a duck wearing a doughboy uniform carrying a giant pencil (the designer’s weapon in the marketing wars) was the only choice as the logo’s main graphic element. But I’m sure that’s been obvious from the start.
