The Freelance Dilemma
Whenever there is a need to bring in a new freelance resource, there are inherit doubts that come with the selection process: Can I trust this person with my reputation and brand? Will my deadline be met? Will the product deliver the right message, to the right people, in a memorable way? When it is done, will the invoice match my budget?
In all cases, the answer must be an unequivocal "YES".
I get it. I live it. I deliver it.

It has been my good fortune to work exclusively with Joe Morris for over 20 years. He is a creative genius. No matter the industry, audience or timeline, he consistently hits it out of the park. I’ve handed him impossible deadlines, difficult scenarios, and the confinement of working with an existing ugly logo or color palette. He takes it all in and creates beautiful and effective work that is within budget and exceeds the highest expectations and my pickiest clients.
—Teresa Girod Principal Girod@Large Marketing and Business Development
Joe knows design inside-out and takes great pride in his work. He is extremely creative and excellent at unique concepts and design solutions. He makes the process exciting and fun, yet is very detailed and thorough in his work. Joe works very fast, is a great listener and grasps what you need very quickly. He is easy to work with, always puts the client first, and never misses deadlines. If you are looking for out of the box "WOW" factor -Joe is your guy!
