About Me

Rick Hammond Profile Photo

I am a design professional with agency experience and a background in communications and marketing. I take a conceptual and strategic approach to design, and pay meticulous attention to design details. I work diligently and invest in learning about each project to ensure the design solution is a perfect fit.

I am originally from and truly love the Twin Cities. This city has a vibrant arts culture and has influenced my strong interest in experiencing the arts, and creating my own. I have a passion for design and an intrinsic need to create. I take an analytical and detailed approach to solving problems while applying my wide-ranging creative spirit.

I am passionate about utilizing my solid foundation of design theory and the design tools I have available to solve visual communication problems with strong visual content for both print and web.
