BRANDING :: PRINT :: WEB

Hello. Thanks for stopping by. My name is TJ Ladner. I am a black and gold bleeding native Pittsburgher with the soul of a west coast surfer. I am a people-person who lives, eats, and breaths visual design. Eats? Yes, I said eats. While I have extensive experience in the corporate and nonprofit worlds, you will see below that my portfolio is rounded out with branding, print, and digital work for some of our area's best restaurants. The challenge and experience of creating identities and designing for brands of all shapes and sizes is truly my passion, but I do have a particular soft spot for restaurants. Good food, breaking bread with good people, and good design on the table, on the door, and online-you can't get much better than that. I love design and making it work.

If you are here, you probably want more details of what I can do. So here's the rundown: graphic design for any print or digital application you can throw at me. This may include creative thinking, concepting, collaboration, hand-crafting design elements, producing photography (I can take pictures myself, retouch, and art direct or manage large scale shoots), print production management, and front end development (primarily HTML and CSS). I play well with others and also excel at independent work. I am a generally laid back person, but I am very serious about my work. If I sound like a good fit for your project or organization, please hit me up.
