he giant head you are seeing to the left is my own. To more properly introduce myself, my name is Jacob Wolfrum. Let me tell you a bit about myself and what I do that will set you apart from the rest. At an early age I suffered much head trauma, ranging from getting a boomerang stuck in my forehead to smacking my face off my neighbors driveway pavement. I believe somewhere in this trauma I was granted the gift of good design sensibility.
I was barely 12 when I picked up my first HTML book. Little did I know that I would be predefining the path of my life for the next decade. Which, when I consider what that exactly means, I’ve been doing something most don’t begin learning until they are adults for almost half of my life. I like to believe this shows one of my greatest strengths: adaptability. I can easily transition from coding to designing without skipping a beat. My constant need to learn new information and teach myself is what has given me the ability to be versatile. If I don’t know the answer to a question, I seek it. I don’t simply find the answer, I do as much as I can to understand it. Knowing why and how that result was achieved is the key.
I want to help you anyone that calls upon me with their graphic design needs. Let’s work together, I promise it’ll be fun!
The very first step of the design process is to discuss and define your project. This includes what you require and want from the project, detailed in careful notes to assure through the process you are receiving what you need.
At this step, I feel I have a full and clear understanding of the needs for your project. We will then discuss possible solutions to achieve the vision you have in mind. Also, in this step I use processes such as researching competition and word mapping to help break your idea out of the box.
This is where I put the pencil to the paper and push toward the boundaries of your idea. This is where your designs come to life and die, crafted carefully by my hand. Sketching is the heart and soul of the design process and is not something I take lightly.
At this point I present ideas to you that have made the cut, in this stage we critique and explore the designs set forth. I will gather your feedback to make changes as well as make improvements to your overall design. This can be one of the most important steps in the process.
The magic is complete and your design is ready to be seen by the world. We can now sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
