Other Design Projects

I’ve designed posters, vinyl banners, a few websites, and t-shirts. While I can work in these mediums I tend to stick with training design, but have the ability to do other things. Perhaps your new hire training could use a t-shirt to go with it?

Check out my other design projects.
