Overview

It all began working in a mid-sized printing company working on weekly newspapers and a variety of monthly publications. Over the years in my constant attempt to grow as an artist, I explored every opportunity that came my way moving from head designer/manager in a smaller local print house to graphic illustrator for a major publishing company, then on to graphic designer for a mid-sized advertising agency. After all that, I relocated from New Jersey to California and was found by a pre-press/production company were I worked again with many more major publishing companies specifically in the scholastic world-both elementary and college. At this point, I now worked with Simon and Schuster, SBG, Houghton Mifflin, McGraw-Hill, and Pearson to name a few. Then one day the opportunity presented itself make the next step: freelance designer/production artist. And that has given me the opportunity to work with so many clients of all sizes. Now, I get to work with large scale publishing corporations, production companies, and smaller independent clients all at the same time!

In these later years, I have been busy designing and creating book such as “Black & Decker”–The Complete Guide, ”Motorbooks Workshop”–Weekend Projects, and other delightful series such as FFA's "How To" books. I have been enjoying bringing many stand-alone as well as other series for enthusiasts and hobbyists, self-improvement, how-to, and craft books from start to finish. I love the chance to design, perform, and present clients with exactly what they want. Every project brings diversity, challenge, and growth opportunity. I am an efficient worker, I enjoy the opportunity to use my imagination, and I am comfortable working under tight deadlines. Creativity and design sense, attention to detail, and strong commitment to my work are some of my greatest loves in life. I bring everything I've learned throughout my career to my clients big or small: desire to push that creative design to reach their visual dream goal while keeping in mind budget. Every client has a financial ceiling. But that doesn't mean the end product doesn't turn out looking like a million bucks!

With a staff of 3 ridiculously excitable and eager to please tiny dogs...there's nothing stopping us from making your dreams come true!

• On one final note: here's some things I've heard from a few people I've worked with-both past and present:

“Danielle is the most reliable production designer I’ve worked with. Her work is accurate and she always makes the tight deadlines of our book projects.”
Brad Springer
Quarto Publishing Group

"The author has returned his marked-up pages already. To quote him, 'I’m amazed at how few mistakes I encountered, less than 1%. In a complex document like this, that suggests you have some highly diligent people working on your behalf. Please relay my compliments.' Thanks for a job well done, Danielle!"
Linda Neubauer
Quayside Publishing
Author and testimonial by Benjamin John Coleman

“Danielle is an excellent graphic designer, who is willing to do the extra little things to make a project better. I have trusted Danielle with some of my most challenging projects and she has always come through.”
James Kegley
Quarto Publishing Group

“Danielle is without a doubt, the best production & layout person I have ever hired in the history of my publishing career. She can take the most complicated project that’s bordering on disaster, and turn it into a spotless masterpiece of information, which is easy to read, understand and digest. AND . . . there’s no limit to the amount of juggling Danielle can do. She is a superior multi-tasker who knows how to balance a very large work load. I highly recommend Danielle for the most challenging of editorial projects!”
