Bio of Luke Hillegas of Rusty Dog Studio
Your friendly, neighborhood graphic designer in Pittsburgh, PA. I work with small business owners to brand and market their products and services with clean, professional design.
Hi. I'm Luke and I like warm hugs.
I've obviously watched Frozen one too many times, which means I'm a father. Born, bred and buttered in Pittsburgh, PA - I live here with my family of humans and, of course, dogs. When I'm not glued to the computer you'll find me playing in my wood shop, playing guitar, playing dad or playing dead.
I like to have fun with the idea of working by myself so please enjoy my little art project. To keep this ship sailing I have to take on a few personalities - and even more occupations. It's not always easy, but we make beautiful music together.
My working self is split three ways. There's the salesman (center). He's the boring one. Attending meetings, taking phone calls and answering emails aren't fun, so we take it easy on him. The builder/printer (left) is my favorite. Between the paper cutters and table saws, it's surprising he still has all ten fingers. Then there's the designer (right). He's the brains behind this operation.
Business meetings are a blast! Paper selection, brand development, creative brainstorming, arguing whether to dress business casual or starving artist, online research and writing project proposals are just a few topics that normally come up.
Of course, with any business, there will be a few internal conflicts.
And sometimes things need to be settled through violence.
But we always make time for some leisure.
So that wasn't really a bio and I'm sorry if you're disappointed, but my life just isn't that interesting. When I'm not with my family I'm building my business and networking with others. If you haven't gotten the gist of what I do, let me sum it up for ya.
I am a commercial artist and printer. My business works with yours to develop the visual branding and marketing collateral needed to impress customers, clients and investors. Making something from nothing by blending creative graphics, quality print materials and digital marketing is why I like to work with me. You should want to work with me for the customer service, convenient options and project dedication.
My slogan is A Business's Best Friend for a reason. My clients entrust me with their image and I take that responsibility very seriously.
Complimentary design consultations and free print quotes are a phone call away.
