About Me - A short bit about past experiences

Introduction to Justin Runyard

Senior level art director and designer with 16+ years of graphic and multimedia design experience from positions in industrial, healthcare, and professional services. Highly creative with strong organizational skills and attention to detail; a collaborator with the ability to work well with others; well-developed and thoughtful leadership skills; steady, balanced and grounded. Consider utilizing my design and project management skills for your next marketing endeavor.

Throughout my years as a graphic and multimedia designer I have worked on such projects as advertising, graphic design, multimedia design, iPad apps, computer based training, e-detailing, websites, and much more for internationally known businesses like Intermatic, Hamilton Sundstrand and Abbott Labs. As a designer, I am constantly pushed artistically and technically to deliver effective print, web, multimedia applications, animations, and videos while staying completely within your brand guidelines and deadlines. Not only am I skilled in graphic and web design, but I also possess project management skills to deliver projects on time and on budget. Hiring a multi-disciplined designer such as me is a highly effective strategy. It enables you to gain a competitive advantage by partnering with me. Freeing you and to focus on your primary business objectives.

Take a few minutes to view my website and see how I've helped other companies achieve their vision. I've been meeting them for over 16 years now, delivering high quality graphic designs on time and on budget.

When I'm not busy designing, I'm coaching my son's soccer team, or floor hockey team, or cheering on my daughter in gymnastics. I also enjoy playing in the sand...sand volleyball that is. And you can also catch me out on a curvy backroad enjoying a ride on my motorcycle from time to time.

I look forward to hearing from you on any opportunities you might have. I promise quality work based on years of experience, education, creativity and flexibility. Any questions, feel free to email or call me.

Don't take my word for it...hear what some of my clients
have to say about my graphic design services and abilities:

 Justin is a pleasure to work with. He brings expertise and creativity to the job - taking our thoughts and making them a reality. I especially appreciate that Justin takes the time to look at the big picture and suggests ways to improve our image. He is easy to work with and we have always been pleased with the finished product.
Susan Bender, CEO at NRI Relocation, Inc.
 Justin definitely delivered with regard to "creating tools that will deliver your vision." At my previous company (CES Group) I had literally just started as an outside sales rep & recruiter as the company had just made a name change. They were in real need of a new website, branding, and marketing materials that reflected the name change as well as all of the services the company provided. Justin was able to listen to our needs and produce a professional copy for review which represented the company vision and all within budget! I highly recommend Justin's services and consider him a strategic marketing partner.
Carmi Daley, Recruiter at CES Group


 Justin did an outstanding job with our site design and blending the original concept with the requests we made for further customization. Communication was excellent throughout the project. Our company was very impressed with the final product and will continue to use Justin for future projects.
