Graphic Design Services

Graphic-Design-Header

Hi, my name is Shawn. I’m a freelance creative specializing in developmental & content editing, format and layout design, graphics services, and comic book production. My graphic design focus is on small-business needs, indie publishing, and the development of social media marketing materials.

In April of 2012, I partnered with author R. Smith at Team Pop Culture, designing the e-book and physical covers for the novel Pop Culture Sucks! Manifesto of a Vampire, the collection of serial shorts Everything Sucks! Shorts, and the Anthology (Everything Sucks! Anthology).

As of January of 2013, I joined the Escape From Jesus Island creative team as the book’s Editor. Though artistic madman Mortimer Glum does most of the project’s images, he and I collaborate almost all the graphic materials needed for the project, with me doing much of the finished work. (He’s a brilliant designer in his own right, but he’s got a comic book to produce!)

In 2015, I also became part of the Astropunk creative team as the book’s Letterer (and eventually as the Editor/Production Manager).

I’ve created custom business logos (Mystic Tattoo’s Logo & sign are examples), comic book logos (Astropunk is an example), Facebook/Twitter/Google+ headers, memes, website graphics, profile images, accents, icons, and more. I enjoy helping entrepreneurs create, develop and exceed the artistic vision for their business logos, signs, and marketing collateral.

GRAPHIC DESIGN SERVICES

 

E-Book Covers

I create eye-catching e-book covers that are attractive at all sizes –even as a thumbnail– and meet all publishing specifications. This service includes layout, design, and file production. Note – if you are interested in using photo images in the design, they must be high quality (300dpi minimum) and sent with the required licensing information.

Price: $35/hr or $100.00+ (Project Dependent)

Paperback Covers

Creating a quality paperback cover is more involved than an e-book cover but seeing the finished product usually makes it a worthy endeavor. I’ll design a full-sized cover (front, back, and spine) accounting for bleeds, text safe area, etc. Dimensions of which depend on page count and publishing plans.

Social Media Graphics

If you are on social media, –and who isn’t nowadays?– you need high-quality, properly sized social media graphics. Don’t think they matter? Spend a little time investigating successful social media accounts. Shoddy visuals can instantly ruin a message. Don’t let that happen to you! I create high-quality headers, backgrounds, profile images, memes, and more. Whatever your visual media need, I can address it.

Price: $25/hr or $35.00+ (Project Dependent)

Logo Design

A business logo isn’t “just a logo.” At least, it shouldn’t be. A business logo is the first step in deciding on a business’s theme, tone and identity. It will adorn signs, business cards, websites, and social media profiles. It’s the beginning of your business as a ‘brand,’ and what prospective clients will judge even before reading a description of your services.
I don’t just throw together an image and call it a logo. I help you make informed, step-by-step decisions that will lead to a logo that helps set you, and your business, up for future success.

Price: $50/hr or $250.00+ (Project Dependent)

Signs & Other Marketing Materials

Already have a logo you’re happy with but need signs or other marketing materials? I can help with that. I design business signs, posters, and more. (Need sell sheets, rack cards, etc? Check out my Layout & Design page.)

Price: $50/hr or $100.00+ (Project Dependent)
