About Randall

My name is Randy. I've been in Eau Claire since 1981. I'm very creative/artistic and have owned my own creative business (signs and graphic design) here in Eau Claire since 1987. I've also just recently completed (Dec. 2016) an IT-Software Development course at CVTC where I learned many programming languages, and also a good deal about mobile-friendly website development. I'm quite familiar with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I'm also quite familiar with web development using HTML, CSS and Javascript/jQuery.

My spelling and grammar are both excellent. I've been told many, many times that I have a gift for writing. I suppose that likely means I have a knack for good sentence structure, along with the unique ability to use words effectively in communicating, motivating, compelling and expressing.

I've had 30 years of experience with computers and computer design software. I've been using Adobe products for 30 years in my sign and graphic design business. I've designed a number of websites; some with WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) software such as Dreamweaver, and most of the others writing native HTML and CSS code using various IDE's (Integrated Development Environment) such as Adobe Brackets, Eclipse or Notepad++.

I've been using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for 30 years in my business. I've designed literally dozens (probably close to a 100) logos. I have also designed many other pieces including brochures, stationery, product packing, CD cover art and so forth. Currently working on a book cover project.

I enjoy sharing the technical knowledge I have as well as the creative, artistic passion as well. I enjoy teaching someone who wants to learn!

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.

Graphic Design

First of all, I was born with natural artistic abilities, a "good eye" for design, layout, composition, color, etc." and because of my passion for design, I started my own sign and graphic design business because I wanted to use those innate talents and passions. I have been doing graphic design in my business since 1987, so 2017 will mark 30 years. I have designed dozens and dozens (probably near 100) logos, and have designed many other pieces such as brochures, stationery, packing art, CD cover art and am currently working on a book cover. I have won contests in logo design and have had many compliments on my "eye for design." I have been using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (mainly) for graphic design for 30 years.

Web Design

I have designed numerous websites. Initially, I did a few with Adobe Dreamweaver as I had no specific code-writing skills or knowledge. But I've just completed a 2 year course in IT-Software Development and have earned an associate degree with a 3.85 gpa. A good bit of the course was related to web design and development. We learned a lot about writing HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery. Whereas prior to my schooling, I used WYSIWYG software such as Dreamweaver, I now can code "from scratch" and write the raw code to design a website. I have a good understanding of these principles and design components. Here's a recent, mobile-friendly website I designed FROM SCRATCH (raw code) using Adobe Brackets:
