Design is about information. It's about distilling ideas and information into appealing, exciting designs that capture imagination and guide the eye and the mind and carry them forward.

I have been a freelance designer and art director for 15 years. I develop solutions for the marketing and public outreach needs of a diverse range of clients. As a freelancer, I know how valuable the relationship is between myself and my clients. I value my clients and their ideas, and I enjoy learning about the information they need to communicate, and figuring out the best way to turn those ideas into great design.

“Thank you for your excellent work in helping the Department of Education to produce its communication materials promoting the President’s 2015 request for education. Everyone is thrilled with the way that the materials look. They are absolutely beautiful. Thank you for your patience, even late into the night, as we hustled to incorporate all the last-minute feedback, including cricial changes from the White House. The infographics you designed are also proving very helpful to us as we promote via social media, they really hit the message we’re trying to convey. We know we can depend on your stellar work, especially under tight deadlines.”
- Tiffany Taber, US Department of Education

“Carmen has worked with me for several years as the graphic designer for all of Results Gym’s marketing material, advertising and printed collateral. It’s not easy capturing another person’s vision but Carmen makes it seem effortless. His patience, methodical workstyle and creative input was invaluable. From one-off items to whole marketing packages, Carmen is able to oversee the minutia to the big picture and keep branding on track. I highly recommend him!”
- Sarah Lengyel, Vice President, Business Development, Results Gym

“I took our project brochure and community info packet with me last week to show off what we are doing and I got nothing but compliments on how nice it all looked. One consultant mentioned that ‘WMATA does really nice work’ and I had to confess that it was our consultant, not us that did such a great job! Thanks.”
- Greg Walker, Project Manager, D.C. Metro (Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority)

“Thanks for doing a bang up job! This is the first time I’ve received a product where there was very little that I’d want to change. You get high marks on the presentation from the Law School! Everyone was very impressed with the presentation.”
- Frank Pietrucha, President, Definitive Communications

“Thanks Carmen! You are the best, and were it not for you, the Union Station Intermodal Transportation Plan would not have succeeded.”
-Tomika Hughey, Project Manager, D.C. Department of Transportation
