How can I help you express your next big idea?

Graphic Design

Graphic design comes in all shapes and sizes from package design, brochures and labels to ads, animations and illustrations. When you need a professional design done, you want it to come out the best it can be while communicating effectively to your target market. What I do is plan, analyze and create solutions to visual communication problems, using the most effective ways in print and electronic media.

Web Design

Nowadays, in all reality, a company's website is truly one of the most important aspects of the business. A unique, representative professional website to promote online exposure has become paired with success. In fact, not having a website or a poorly done website, or some sort of web presence, sucks credibility from a business, thus turning customers away. Let me help you create a user friendly, mobile ready website that makes a statement.

About Me

Josh Potter skateboarding Pier Park Portland OregonThank you for visiting my site and taking the time to review my work. My earliest memories of art are of drawing stick man space battles as a little kid. As the years passed, I just kept drawing and designing all kinds of imagery. In my early teens I began skateboarding, which opened my eyes to the art of graphics and product branding. I often found myself standing in skate shops and elsewhere imagining designing skateboards and other graphics. With that, I knew I wanted to pursue my passion by attending the Colorado Institute of Art. I've been fortunate to work as a designer ever since graduating in July of 1998. And it is my hope that you like what you see on my website and we have the opportunity to work together.
