About The Art of Wow

I have been working in the design industry for over 35 years. I majored in printmaking in college and I still love the smell of printer’s ink. My first job was as a PMT [Photo-mechanical Transfer or “Stat”] camera operator at a Portland, OR department store. From there I moved to Seattle where I began my graphic design career in earnest. At that time our layouts and concepts were drawn by hand and I still look back fondly on the wealth of talent I met in those early years in Seattle design.

At Artitudes, I am privileged to help deliver design solutions for our clients that leverage the latest technologies and enjoy the expanding possibilities they offer the graphic designer. But what makes this job different is Artitudes’ commitment to giving back to the community through our support of Olive Crest, artEAST, Matt Talbot Center, Downtown Issaquah Association, Lenny Wilkens Foundation, and Artitudes in Action, our art docent education program in the local grade schools.

I hope to share some of our excitement, interests and ideas in this blog.
