In addition to being a senior graphic designer and art director, once my conceptual skills developed I was promoted to several jobs as a copywriter. Copywriters are generally considered more conceptual than the hands-on artists. Of course, I contend that being an excellent graphic designer also begins with being a good conceptualist. (Read about how the creative process works.)
I wrote hundreds of Nissan ads for the Bay Area newspapers while working at the prestigious ad agency, TBWA\Chiat\Day, the year we won "Ad Agency of the Year". In fact, I've designed and produced thousands of ads, and won a few awards. I wasn't always able to contribute my concepts, but 90% of the work depicted on this site are my own concepts and words to give you a sense of my style. In the right navigation are a few of the favorite things I've written.
