I launched my formal design career at 2communiqué. First, I learned how a truly effective creative business should be run, with dedication to the work and client, while also being extremely efficient. I have measured all my succeeding experiences against this model. Second, I had the opportunity to work on truly brilliant publication design with world-class photographers, illustrators, editors, and clients, many of whom I maintain relationships with to this day.
