hi, I'm Trevor
I do this because I like it.

It’s simple – I’m here because I love design. And I love to work with people who are passionate about what they do as well.

An unlikely start, I found my passion for design in the Army. While overseas, I spent nearly every off-duty hour honing my craft and, in the process, discovered how powerful design could be to morale.

Now years later, I’m a freelance graphic designer based in Colorado Springs, and I still can’t get enough of that ‘a-ha!’ feeling when a client’s dream becomes real because of something we created.

my wheelhouse

I specialize in logo design & branding because that’s where I provide the most possible value to my clients. I think of our brands as tangible assets – the project we work on today will be even more valuable five, ten, or twenty years from now. Our brands are built to last.

logo design + branding

Logos, brand design, wordmarks, icons, badges, logo redesign, rebranding, naming, consulting, messaging, color theory, brand guidelines.

design in general

Some other projects we might team up on:

Web design (WordPress), print design, packaging design, product design, labels, stickers, flyers, posters, business cards, banners, brochures, menus, apparel, and anything that needs that creative touch.

other miscellaneous things I’m good at

Project management, staying in budget, communicating, drawing cacti, eating tacos, keeping my Duolingo streak alive, being a fan of losing sports teams, guessing the bands of classic rock songs.
