I believe design is best when it is simple and human. I work first by understanding all that I can about the subject/product and customer. I put myself in the customers shoes. And ask:

Why should I care about it?
Why is it better than others?
What can this do for me?

I design to evoke emotions, draw in customers, and get them to respond. To embrace, care and connect. Results through honest and thoughtful influence.
