Graphic Design and Production for Printed Media

If it needs to be designed and printed, I can do it, probably have done it, and have a production pipeline in place to get it done.

I like taking varied project types. Over the past two decades I have worked with just about every type of print-based design project possible; product packaging, business essentials, large format signs, economical quick print catalogues, lifesize cutouts, fancy nancy invitations with unique ink and papers, and soooo many more. If you have an interesting promotion idea….. I like to kick down big discounts to learn and experiment!

With close ties to tradesman only printshops and production facilities, I can get competitive pricing for production.

I have a Fiery digital press for short runs and a large format 7 color Epson onsite for select projects.

Here’s some examples that show design for different types.

Tai Hunter witnessed the print industry go through seismic changes: from darkroom film and imagesetter plates, then direct to plate, and now fully digital. Sometimes it feels like a totally different industry, but some things never change; core design principles, typography and color theory.

I’ve been blessed to witness the breakneck speed of innovation and decentralization of the whole design and production pipeline, and was fortunate to begin in a time when so much effort was required for small things. It really makes one analyze the design and production process carefully when undo’s can’t go past 5 iterations (looking at you photoshop v5.0), not to mention the cost of service bureaus and re-plating mistakes! All this makes
