"Bay Area quality" landing pages

I design and create high quality landing pages that are in line with design trends native to the Bay Area.

After 15 years of professional experience in every aspect of visual, brand, and product design within the startup industry, I have acquired a deep understanding of what a great presentation for a digital brand should look and feel like. I always stay up-to-date with all modern design trends, tools, and techniques of visual design, especially as they are applied here in the Bay Area. Currently, I am offering my services as a design consultant with focuses on brand design, art direction, and the creation of rock-star landing pages for companies in the Bay Area.

Please feel free to explore some works I have created for my clients here.

And more...

While I am currently focusing my consulting on landing page creation, I am also available for a broader spectrum of services in areas I have expertise in: Product Design, Brand Design & Strategy, Art Direction, UI & UX (research & prototyping), Visual Design.

Additionally, I can create (myself or through subcontracting) any other design collateral you might require, such as marketing collateral, illustrations, keynote presentations, print materials, etc.

Here is how I can help you save money while delivering the highest quality results.

Throughout my career I have amassed a large network of professional designers around the world. After having launched a startup myself (Cherrybox), for which 6K designers worldwide have signed up, my network has literally exploded. I now have direct access to professionals whose quality and integrity I can fully trust, yet who, due to their geographical location, charge 1/10 of the average Bay Area rate. This means that I can almost instantly identify and attract a designer(s) to your project who would be (1) a stylistic match (very important!), (2) high quality, and (3) inexpensive. I will manage and art direct these subcontractors myself. This will save you money, reduce complexity for you, and save me time.

This is how you will be able to enjoy agency level quality of results at a “bootstrapping startup” price level! :)

Hire me as a contracting Art Director

I know what great design is, and I know how to hire, mentor, and manage a team of designers for you. As your startup matures and scales, I will make sure that you end up with a delightful and effective design department.
