I work with small business brands to help express the essence of what they are.
I want to tell your story. To help your clients find you, identify with you, and become raving fans. Let’s get ’em pounding on your doors with thoughtful, beautiful design and an avalanche of communication concepts.
“I” means me, Richard Miller – the guy wearing dirigible goggles over there. I’ve been crafting great design for twenty-five years, and I’ll help you identify the soul of your business.
