curated partners

After a couple decades as a graphic designer, you get to know who you can trust to provide your clients with the best service, products and content. I am happy to work with all the providers my clients are most comfortable with, but I still have my favorites and am happy to share them with you so you can have a sense of what you’re going to get if you select any of these amazing people to help bring your brand to life. I recommend any of these creatives without hesitation — they all provide the highest level of attention to detail and the best solutions and suggestions for every single unique client. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want more information about their work or want to see samples.

1826 Photographic

Jamie Speer, owner and creative genius of 1826 Photographic in Sandusky, is much more than a colleague. We have worked together, owned an art gallery together, and bounced ideas off each other for  almost 20 years. We are on the same page for every single client we serve. Jamie approaches her corporate and branding photography with the true eye of a graphic designer (it’s easy, having been one herself) and she has the most amazing studio, staff and capabilities. She excels at capturing just the right images to meet the goals, uses and style of photography that is best suited for each client and their end products——be it web, print, billboards, etc.

Label Aid

Label Aid, right here in Huron, Ohio, provides some of the most stunning print labels you have ever seen. Their capabilities and embellishments are endless——it’s a designer’s dream to enter their swoon-worthy workspace and see the beautiful works of art they produce for their clients. Every foil color and every beautifully-textured stock provides a candy store of choices for clients who need their products to truly stand out among the sea of monotonous products. Seeing a design brought to life in their hands is the holy grail for any graphic designer. I am honored and thrilled they have also selected me as a partner to help their clients with one-of-a-kind tailored designs.


I am beyond lucky to have this little gem in my design life AND just down the block from my design studio. Liz Janshego and the gang are design mind readers, and on a regular basis they bring so many of my print designs to a glorious life. I, too, worked in a digital print shop and I tell you, it’s no easy job! Sometimes black and white prints aren’t the most glamorous jobs, but they can make anything look amazing. They are so easy to work with and they always understand my odd print notes and requests. True professionals, they make every job look fantastic and their prices fit any client’s budget. That is a rare combination, I can assure you.
