About Richard

Working out of my in-home studio, I have worked with several students (ages ranging from 18 to 40) plus going to their homes to tudor. My tutoring/teaching experience over the years, in general has been one-on-one. But, also being the senior art director at many different advertising agencies, teaching and overseeing the progress of the workers was a regular daily situation. The transference of information, giving demonstrations and teaching is part of being an art director.

Some of my work background:
Created materials for numerous products in diverse industries (manufacturing, service and retail). Companies included The First American Financial Corporation, Epson, Avery Dennison, Jeffrey Court, Brook Furniture, Albertson’s, Standard Brands, Adair, Health Valley, Valu-Rite and CBS among others. Products included electronics, furniture, housewares, automotive, sporting goods, food, medical supplies, pet products and art supplies, to name a few.

With years of experience in the advertising business, printing, and Senior Art Director, and management in the graphic field, I offer knowledge, talent and ability.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been working with the Photoshop program on the Mac Platform since 1992. I have created, drawn, done image corrections, photo retouch, and illustration using the program a thousand times. I have hundreds of samples and testimonials as to my abilities utilizing the program and computer skills in general.

Highly creative and multi-talented Graphic Designer with experience in the development of the many facets of advertising materials. Inventive and fast thinking with proven successful completions of work for companies in diverse industries such as; advertising, entertainment, printing and manufacturing. Able to work closely with clients to create original graphics and conceive strong, effective designs while meeting project requirements.

The key to my success has been the thorough knowledge and understanding of advertising from concept development, production, presentation and coordination through to delivery. Worked on large-scale productions as well as specialized ones with the goal to reduce costs while adhering to strict budgets and deadlines. Consistently demonstrated the ability to analyze difficult situations, plan and implement an effective course of action and bring projects to a successful and profitable conclusion.

Drawing

Doing original illustrations/artwork and designs is what I offer as a Freelance Graphic Designer. I have been in the business for 35 years. I started out in the Advertising Business doing line art (a thousand, at least), then Marker Comps, eventually moving to the computer to do art work.

Graphic Design

My 35 year advertising career has included full time positions as Art Director, Senior Art Director and Freelance Graphic Designer. The last fifteen years I have owned my freelance business. Over the years I have worked for 100 different agencies and companies. My business has included both computer art and using traditional artwork techniques. I have worked primarily on the Mac platform working heavily in Photoshop, Illustrator, Quark, InDesign and various other programs. Being a designer and artist, Photoshop and Illustrator are my primary programs that I have become very familiar with. I have both a printed, traditional portfolio and an electronic version that show hundreds of samples of my work.

In the past I have created and designed for companies like; CBS, Hughes Aircraft, and 100 different advertising agencies, manufacturers and retailers. I have been honored in the advertising field with over forty awards from the Inland Empire ADDY’S.
