I work with small business brands to help express the essence of what they are.

Brand identities & logo design, website development, social media tools, marketing collateral … and now, soccer club branding.

I want your customers to understand how you can help them. Let’s tell your story with thoughtful, beautiful design and an avalanche of branding & communication concepts.

“I” means me, Richard Miller – the guy wearing dirigible goggles. I’ve been crafting great design for thirty years, and I’ll help you communicate the soul of your business.
