I am a freelance commercial artist offering full print services to my clients and the local community of Pittsburgh. Small business owners who value a clean, creative and professional image use my talents to build their local and nationwide brand. I then offer the convenience of producing the print and digital marketing materials for distribution, working closely within budgets and timelines. Business owners in Pittsburgh use my services every day to properly market the goods and services they stand behind.




You are the owner or the marketing manager of a small, local business. You're looking for a creative source of influence to distinguish your business from the competition. You don't want cheap. You don't want cheesey. You want authentic. Maybe the business is brand new. Maybe a fresh look is needed to grow. What you don't want is the runaround when marketing choices need made. You'd rather have one phone number to call so your business promotions stay current and sales opportunities are not lost. You are dedicated to your business and want to work with someone committed to their own.



I work one-on-one with my clients to provide the visual materials needed to promote and operate their small business. I work for myself and by myself in order to provide your business with the personal attention it deserves. I strive for creativity and originality in my designs. I have worked with first time entrepreneurs and I've worked with century old organizations. I provide honest feedback and brainstorm with my clients to find the best, most logical marketing choice to make when considering my services. I can't help everyone, but those who invest in my time receive my full dedication to each project and the convenience of sourcing their visual designs, online resources and print collateral directly through one point of contact.



What I've come to find when working with my clients is that marketing their business is a very personal endeavor. They've all put their finances, credibility and time at risk by running a small business and often I find they'll want a large influence in the way their image is conveyed - which they should. My initial piece in this puzzle is a free consultation. I receive calls and visits to my South Side office where I get to know your business, understand your expectations and provide suggestions regarding our conversation. Every client, business and project calls for various amounts of my time but all receive 100% of my effort.

Luke was really easy to work with. He gave me his honest opinions about my many many ideas and produced a logo that was perfect for my new business! I would definitely hire him again.

Luke does all of my graphics work for my maple syrup business. He does a great job and he always gets it right and asks the right questions. He is the only graphic designer I’ve worked with that understands what I want better than I do. 100% recommendation.

Luke recently created a professional brochure to use for my consulting business. I found Luke to be extremely attentive to all the details I requested. The brochure looks amazing and I have received many compliments. I would recommend Luke as an accomplished graphic designer.
