Who Is Vic Lindsay?

I'm an up-and-coming young designer who has relocated to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Previously, I lived in New York City and worked for a historic non-profit organization as well as on a freelance basis. During that time, I continually honed my creative and technical skills in order to provide an ever-increasing quality of service.

What's My Work Ethic?

All my work is guided by a simple principle, nil satis nisi optimumnothing less than my best. My goal as a designer is not merely to make my clients happy, but to make them successful. I work with clients to create materials that effectively communicate their message and empower them to grow their business.

Why Pay For Professional Design?

We're taught as children not to judge a book by it's cover, but we also learn early in life that you do not get a second chance to make a first impression. In our modern world, your website, your business card, your email, or your printed brochure will be the first the first thing people see. Professionally designed and printed materials communicate that you take yourself seriously and help to build trust.

What Can I Do For You?

As a digital media professional, I offer comprehensive design services including graphic and web design as well as communications and marketing consulting.
For example:

Logos | Wordmarks
Business Cards | Stationary
Postcards | Brochures | Posters
Labels | CD Jackets

How Do We Start?

Send me an email with a basic outline of your project and we can schedule a time to discuss the details more specifically. We'll work together to determine a timeline for completion and settle on appropriate compensation.

I'll be happy to provide references from previous clients or show you examples of my work.

Compiled, designed, and edited a family cookbook featuring hundreds of recipes.

Family Cookbook

Client's Comments:

Vic agreed to take on the project of our family's second cookbook. We had produced one about twenty years earlier but we had younger family members who wanted to contribute. He patiently requested recipes and sent reminders and updates. Vic took our recipes and formatted them into an easy to read typestyle.

We were very pleased with finished product. It is a beautiful book that preserves our family's favorite recipes for our children and grandchildren. I especially love the cover he designed. It's clever, colorful and it makes me smile every time I take it off the shelf. I enthusiastically recommend Vic Lindsay for your next graphic arts project.

Produced a wide array of wedding materials including: multi-page program booklet with hand-drawn cover illustration, invitation insert, reception email invitation, bookmark, CD label, and photo slide show.

Client's Comments:

I just have to say how much we enjoyed this entire building process and how pleased we are with the end result. We have received numerous compliments on the look and feel, which very much reflect our many conversations leading to its creation.

He has a nice blend of the artistic/creative mind and professionalism, which meant he was timely, and respectful of our deadlines, as well as our tastes and culture of the company. He listened and produced.

As we've needed to tweak here and there, he has continued to be punctual and creative. We continue to utilize his services as we finesse and update the site regularly.

I will highly recommend him again and again. It was a pleasure to work with someone who was not simply creative, but ethical and professional.

Designed postcards, posters, fliers, magnets, brochures, and all manner of printed and digital promotional material for a wide range of church affinity groups. Each design is uniquely tailored to its target demographic.

I was also primarily responsible for crafting the organization's online communications strategy, including website content management, email campaigns, social networking.

Client's Comments:

Vic proved himself invaluable as a member of our communications team. His skills in graphic design, website management, and email marketing helped Marble Church improve its effectiveness in communicating with a local and national audience. He is a talented designer with a knack for taking a concept and turning it into a clear, insightful presentation.

He is motivated and orderly, both in his thinking and work habits, and was instrumental in setting procedures and implementing systems that not only strengthened the objectives of the church, but helped reduce costs and increase efficiency.

Vic relates well with co-workers and is a team player who readily comes to the aid of someone needing help with a project. He works with integrity and is an asset to any organization that is fortunate to have him on its staff.
