More Than Just Web Design

Helping you look good in print

Logo Design

Whether you’re launching a new business, branding an event, or refreshing your logo design, Graphikitchen can help ensure your visual brand is unique, powerful and connects with your audience.


Graphic Design

I have 25+ years of experience in typography, color theory, prepress, design and printing techniques. Graphikitchen can help you make a long-lasting impression by designing compelling annual reports, brochures, magazines, packaging, and other printed projects.

Book Design

Book design—including the finer points of cover design and typography—is a dying art. In a rush to press, crucial elements are often overlooked. I apply the skills of a craftsman to design and lay out books for publishers and self-published authors. I can transform your passion project from rough manuscript into a professionally printed book or e-book.

Real People. Real Success Stories.

A brief case study

CPE Connect

CPE Connect is a provider of live webinars and online self-study courses for accountants and other financial professionals. They hired me to undertake a comprehensive website design solution, including the logo design and creating a style guide.

I designed their WordPress website with powerful integrations, including LearnDash Learning Management System (LMS) for custom student dashboards, downloadable course content, quizzes, final exams and custom certificates of completion.

The e-mail and shopping cart are powered by WooCommerce, and the site is integrated with the MailChimp Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to capture user data and create a customer email database for future marketing efforts.
