It isn’t work when you love doing it.
The Studio: WonderFull is a branding, design and print studio dedicated to clear communication and beautiful presentation. I promise two things: exceptional work and an excellent working experience. I don’t chase graphic fads and visual fashions. I’m impassioned by design appropriateness and energized by helping others define and design their story in a clear, concise and consistent way. I give commitment to the long haul, dedication to process and absolute top quality proven in the smallest details.
“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.” ~ Henry Miller
For the last 15 years I’ve been directing Christian organizations in branding, design and marketing decisions. In those years I’ve developed a love of working with other creatives. This collaboration and pursuit of impossible goals is what gets me out of bed each morning. I don’t just want to do good design; I want to get a response, impact lives and use my craft toward some larger purpose. Art and design are languages that speak into culture and I want to shape a worthy voice in every thing that I create.
Why the name ‘WonderFull’? The WonderFull name comes from two thoughts, the first of which is self-evident. I love quality, and aspire to the highest standard in everything I do. Projects that aim only for ‘good enough’ are worse than ones never begun. Work done well is its own reward.
The second thought is deeper, more abstract. In 1998 I was offered a lead design position that my English Literature & Architecture Bachelors left me woefully unqualified to accept. Hard work, a passion for precision, and God’s grace sufficed where lack of talent left great want. In Isaiah 9:6 Jesus is called “wonderful counselor” and I once heard that the word wonderful in this passage means much more than simply ‘miraculous’. The actual definition means it could not have happened without God’s intervention. This resonates deeply with me.
My life, overflowing with innumerable gifts and mercies, evidences this same intervention. The name WonderFull is my reminder to be thankful, humble, and filled with awareness at the beauty and blessings of my God. I am in wonder of him.
