Post FREE Offer FREE (Sort of...)
Allow me to sully the fields of civilized discourse with base discussion of monetary things. But as it's to your potential benefit, I will take forgiveness as intended in advance.


For the 30-odd years of my working career, I have done variations on the same general theme: creative development with words (mostly) and images. My actual job title and daily function have varied with the phase of the planets, but in general I write, edit, design and get things printed and published. Over the course of time I've acquired a staggeringly wide range of skills and abilities.

For the last decade or so, I've been a Publisher, and that's taken precedence over more general creative work. (Not entirely: see the materials I created for the Centennial, for example.) It's time for a change. For a variety of reasons, I am swapping my Publisher hat to the shotgun seat and letting my other general skill take charge: I'm returning to general creative agency work.

(Among that variety of reasons is a certain boredom with my daily routine, and the fact that my publishing efforts are going to be entirely taken up by the Burton project - some 50-60 volumes' worth - for the next 10-12 years.)

So I'm ramping back up to that field, and I rolled out the carpet yesterday, on the 1st. That was mostly a psychological marker as I am still working up marketing materials, ad campaigns, etc. and won't really be up to speed much before the end of the month.

I have, however, an embarrassing problem to overcome. I've spent so much of the last decade-plus in publishing and corporate publications that my portfolio of general work is woefully dated. I have a relatively small and inbred pool of current work to show potential clients, and it's not nearly broad enough. I don't want to waste time creating a bunch of bogus sample material. (I am the kind of person who won't do tutorials; I prefer to learn a tool or process on an effort that will result in something useful.) Chicken, meet egg; Egg, Chicken.

So I need a quick slew of projects to turn out and fill some new pages of my portfolio book... and that's where you come in. I know many of you are in business for yourselves or work for companies small enough to be interested. This offer is generally limited to oldsters and Centennial Attendees, but anyone is free to inquire.

Bottom line: if you need business or organization materials, from business cards to brochures to any of the usual stuff, I am offering it for cost - and I mean four-color, commercial press output at prices that will make your jaw drop. My design and creative input is gratis. So if you or your employer need some material, or a freshening of logo, image, and marketing materials, or you need full-color graphic vinyl banners, or anything else... just holler.

Discuss here as you like but please make inquiries through email. You can start by heading to the agency website:

I could use some new business cards. My maximum needed exceeds the minimum of most printers in my (South Jersey) area. I will email you and see what can be done. RAHfan2
