Profile Information

Your Website or Blog
I am an award-winning creative director and graphic designer with 20 years experience with Fortune 500 clients including airlines, builders, banks & securities, pharmaceuticals, automobiles, entertainment companies, health & beauty, and retailers. I have countless published illustrations, logos, advertisements, and websites, to my credit. I have also taught communication design at such prestigious schools as Pratt Institute, University of Marymount, Skidmore CCI, as well as corporate and private tutoring. I currently co-own the internationally award-winning design and illustration studio: Echo-X Studios.

My professional background is in the invention and use of visual symbols to communicate ideas between people. I have been doing so for some of the most ambitious, demanding, and public clients in the world. It is part art and part science. My profession demands measurable and reproducible results in my symbols. It’s not enough to simply say “this logo represents X and motivates the consumer to do Y.” I have to definitively prove that the logo "communicate X" SUCCESSFULLY, that market research agrees with the message strategy, and that consumers react accordingly. Visual designers use tried and true rules to ensure the success of our work. The Runes follow those rules – and the results of what they say will blow your mind.
When did you begin using the runes?
1982 for fun, 1992 for research

The original
Who are your favorite authors on the runes?
