I am a graphic designer with an incredible passion and love for concept and design. With decades of experience in Graphic Design and over 30 years as an illustrative sketch artist, he brings a valuable commodity to the table. With confidence and experience, I can get the job done the way you want it. I am an accomplished designer based in Reno, NV.
Growing up in Morgan City, LA, I discovered my passion for drawing at the age of 7 by copying art from popular comic books. By the age of 11, I had developed my own techniques and began creating my own original pieces. In 1998, I attended Graphic Communication classes at Truckee Meadows Community College, which led me to pursue further education and ultimately land my first Graphic Design job in 2000. Since then, I have honed my skills in silk screening, vinyl, digital print, web design, and advertisements, and I am proficient in multiple design programs, plotters, laminators, and printers such as CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Versa Works, Flexi Sign, Graphtec, Mimaki, HP Latex, Mutoh, Seal, and Gerber Omega. Additionally, I possess extensive knowledge of sign construction and permitting processes.
As a full-time professional artist, I specialize in creating designs for electric signs, monument signs, digital prints, vinyl, vehicle wraps, web design, logo design, social media management, advertising, and manufactured signs of all types. Unlike many other Graphic Designers, I take pride in performing both design and production aspects. I consider myself an independent designer who has gained valuable real-world experience outside of school. I established RKW Designs to fill a gap in the market and bring together various sign shops, local printers, and clients from the local and national communities. My goal is to foster a prosperous and satisfying community by working collaboratively with others.
