I’m very pleased to introduce GhostRanch Communications, a brand new presentation design studio, currently based out of Denver, Colorado, with help from around the world!
There were many reasons for us to dive “all in” on presentations. I’ll be detailing many of these reasons on the GhostRanch blog. But if I can boil it down to just one thing, it’s that I firmly believe that presentations are still one of the greatest storytelling mediums around; yet, the bar is very, very, very low. We’ve come to expect very little from one another when it comes to a PowerPoint’s substance and design. My mission is to change that. We’re raising the bar, making slides sexy again. Helping our clients truly make great impressions and stand far apart from their competition with the most polished presentations on the planet.
So… who’s with me? If you’d like to follow along, like us on Facebook, hit me up with your thoughts and ideas. We’re in for an exciting ride.
Three years ago (today), I started working for myself. Full-time.
No more steady paychecks. No more health benefits. No paid vacation. No project managers telling me what to work on, or when to get it done. No account managers showing off the work, absorbing the feedback, talking dollars and cents. No creative directors pushing my work. No art directors, no copywriters. No human resources, no president, no CEO, just me. Me, in a fitting room, trying on a crap ton of hats.
I’ve burnt the 2am oil once or twice during these past three years, but, weirdly, it’s never felt like work. It’s been hard. But not, like, work hard. Just rewarding, and fun.
Thank you to all of my clients who’ve kept me too busy to write my “announcing Mioduski Design” post. Three years later, here it is.
Give it up for independence!
Happy July 1st,
Hey there! If you’re here, you probably saw my post in the Denver Egotist.
Thanks for coming. Also, thank you for ignoring how badly my website is in need of an update. I swear, it’s because I’m staying really busy.
Which is why you’re here. As I mentioned in the Egotist post, I’d love to get you going on a few projects on the freelance / part time tip, and take it from there. If it’s a good fit, we’ll see where it goes, I’d love to find ongoing help, and I’d love to help you grown in your career as a designer.
My ideal amigo / amiga must be resourceful, like my main man MacGyver.
I’ll assume you’re an amazing designer, with an eye for detail, a pension for color, an affinity for type—all of those designerly cliches.
Tell me what you’re passionate about beyond design—what makes you different? Can you illustrate? Are you a gifted creative writer? Do you dig digital? Have you messed around with CSS3? Have you ever had a sales job? Are you stoked about photography? Video editing? Standup comedy? You tell me!
