My name’s Philip and I’m a freelance graphic designer. My services range from traditional graphic design, web design, motion graphics, and illustration. My working process involves a lot of sketching, coffee consumption, and sticky note reminders hanging off my screen. Outside of work and drawing I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, and trying to find new walking routes to avoid driving my car. I’m always looking for new projects and exciting people to work with. If your’e interested in working together or just feel like reaching out, please feel free.
