Graphic work requires knowledge of the graphic industry.
Design, communication and presentation are better, if done with good craftmanship and methods.
Designing or inking your next catalog, setting up a website, doing your packaging, or whatever else there is. The tasks are done from concept and design until press start.
Experience and efficiency are the keywords, when I work.

Experience can be earned in many ways. I have been studying at a constant rate in all those 25 years I have been into graphics.
My experience spans a long range of different graphic tasks, also some not so usual for a designer, like CTP and certifying pdf files with Pitstop.
From a start as a platemaker, I have a strong technical foundation. I have my roots in design of jewelry and in art, but also in graphic work. When it comes to it, the principles of design are universal.
Adobe CS5.5 is the newest kid in town, I have worked wit CS from the first version and with the applications within it for much longer. Before that I worked with Quark Xpress. And I know quite a lot of other graphics applications.
Also in web desing the tools come from Adobe CS 5.5. But I work with several other applications too. HTML5 and CSS3 are the new standards. This site has been mae with HTML5 and CSS3. These standards are based on the existing HTML4 and CSS2, but have a range of new exicting possibilities.
I have been working with the production of catalogs in almost all its phases, from planning to press start. Set-up, inking, readying pdf files for the press, press start and the planning of production.
In packaging I have worked with a wide range of different packaging. This inkluded design, inking, readying pdf files for the press and platemaking.
As a CTP operator I set up booklets and magasins in Preps an made plates for a range of graphic products, though mainly packaging and booklets.
