MICHAEL PUTMAN

Illustrategist

It could be said that I was born with a pencil in my hand. An artist from childhood, my abilities were polished and trained through; Education; 20 years in the design and advertising world with expansive roles that encompassed design, writing, editing, creative direction, illustration, project management as a principle in a B2B agency; and another 20 years as an established independent designer and illustrator developing a broad skill set and client list. That list is now expanding into illustrated children's books, which has become a new passion for me.

Along with creating remarkable and strategic graphic solutions and imagery, and telling engaging stories visually, I also strive to make my client's experience positive and collaborative. But rather than toot my own horn, here are snippets of comments from some of my cohorts in creation.

"Always a professional, Michael's talent breaks through the clutter to reveal outstanding concepts and artwork that will help to tell a story in unique, compelling way. In addition to his outstanding design talent, I find Michael to be easy to work with, reasonably priced, and always intent on making client deadlines". - Mark Foster

"Michael and I have been working together for almost 17 years. It has been a truly great adventure collaborating with Michael. His talent is amazing, whatever direction I ask him to take, he is able to create that look". - Steve Peloquin

"Michael is not only a very fine graphic designer, but a lovely person with a great sense of humor. As a fellow freelancer, I've always appreciated Michael's attention to detail and deadlines". - Stacia Goodman

I would love an opportunity to show you how I can add value, strategy, color, character and engagement to your project. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line!
