As a visual designer, I help companies reach and inspire their audiences, crafting effective solutions for the web and for print. To each project I bring strengths in conceptual development and communication, with attention to user experience and detail.
Originally from the east coast, I moved to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California. At USC I studied traditional painting and drawing, and was trained to approach my work with a strong concept and critical eye. These days, I’m constantly learning, from classical art instruction to the latest animation and design blogs—cursed with a desire to create ever more excellent work.
I have enjoyed working with companies on a freelance basis since 2007, collaborating closely with established and startup clients in the entertainment, publishing, web/mobile, small business, non-profit, and Christian ministry sectors.
“When I think of a person of creative intellect and talent, I think of Ian. I have known him for years and I continually rely on his vision to add production value to the sites we produce. Mr. Dale is a hard worker with a keen eye for presentation and appearance with a "big picture" sensibility. While showing an exemplary initiative on projects that require both high levels of creativity and technical skills, he frequently works under very tight deadlines. He has a relevant understanding of time and budget constraints and consistently exceeds our expectations.”
“…underlying to his specific skillset, Ian innately has what no amount of training or repetition can provide: an eye for quality and perfection. Craft aside, Ian is one of the most honest and earnest (I mean every nuance of each of those words; not just listing them for the sake of adjective quantity) you could hope to encounter.”
