Creative, competent and quick! PRINT ADS, WEB ADS, E-BLASTS, CATALOGS, BOOKS, BROCHURES. Producing successful designs on time and within budget has kept me in business as a freelancer for 15 years. Creativity and aesthetic sensibility are two central reasons for this. Equally important factors are: communicating with the client so I can accurately depict their message; the ability to handle and prioritize several projects at once; a strong knowledge of traditional and developing production technologies; excellence in computer design software. My work includes a broad range of print and electronically delivered media for industries ranging from book publishing to radio. I have also worked with a number of public interest and non-profit groups. Please have a look at my online portfolio at: http://www.norawertz.com
