Hi, I’m Dom Webster, a freelance graphic designer from Baltimore. I love the entire design process and have enjoyed being a creative designer for over 15 years. I’m passionate about creating digital marketing assets as well as print materials. I have worked with several clients in various industries from large hospitals, educational franchisors, banking systems, and start-ups.
I am flexible, reliable, timely, and inventive. When I’m working on your projects, I act as if I am working for you in your office (except I’m probably sitting in shorts, drinking coffee, and jamming out to the Grateful Dead). If you would like to talk more or to review my resume, I would be happy to talk or to send you my CV.
What do you get when we work together?
I’m someone who is:
- Drama-free and not offended by criticism or feedback.
- Easy to work with and works well with teams too.
- Dependable, I can be reached by cell, Gchat, or email.
- Budget-conscious, I understand overages don’t produce happy clients.
So what kind of stuff can I do?
I’ve spent over 15 years as a working professional graphic and website designer. In my daily life, I can be found working on:
- Designing digital marketing assets
- Creating landing pages and developing email templates
- Updating image or text content on different website platforms
- Petting my dog and cat while drinking coffee andthinking of ways we can work together to make your life easier.
BEING A FREELANCE GRAPHIC DESIGNER, FOR ME, IS ABOUT TELLING A STORY.
The store can be created in just one image or within an entire ad campaign. Its purpose is to lead the viewer somewhere and offer a simple emotional choice. The right font choice and element layout can influence how a person sees and reacts to the content.
I became a graphic designer professionally in 1998 after receiving my degree from a school centered around advertising and graphic design. I began work as a designer for a large sign making company in Baltimore. I was designing custom logos, large vehicle wraps, and billboards. After a while, I wanted a new challenge, one that could help me to grow as an artist and designer. I wanted to work for advertising agencies but new that I would need to refine my style more.
Once I felt I had sharpened my design skills and technique, I began designing for a few agencies as a freelance designer. After a few months, I was offered a full-time position. I loved the challenge of coming up with different ideas, narrowing them down, refining them, then seeing the final product.
With more people finding the internet, I began to teach myself HTML in the evenings. Early websites were mostly glorified tables, but I saw the potential for graphics to be used to help express the site’s message and vision. In 2000 I built my very first professional website for the Barcelona Nuts company.
Fast forward a few moons, I have designed several websites and countless design, and I still love designing websites and making graphics to move people into action. I love telling a story that evokes an emotional reaction to the material that’s presented. While a lot of design trends have come and past, I think we can always depend on the basics. More than three fonts can be bad, just because you have Photoshop doesn’t mean you’re a designer, and Comic Sans should NEVER be used.
