My perfect client is …
A client open to collaboration. I enjoy working with someone who understands successful projects take time, but I respect that not all projects have the luxury. Communication is important, a client may have specific ideas while another may need more creative guidance. I appreciate clear direction and patience to work through the creative process.
You should hire me because …
My experience designing a wide range of projects through the years has allowed me to hone my skills in each part of the design process — from invention to creation; refinement to production. I am confident in directing my own designs as well as comfortable working within the given guidelines of a brand.
Ed Tharp was an excellent fit for my client's project, a history of the Thomasville Entertainment Foundation in Thomasville, Ga. Always professional and attentive, Ed began his work by listening thoughtfully to us about our book concept, asking good questions, and making suggestions about how we could improve our ideas.
Most impressive was Ed's ability to balance the book’s accessibility with its sophistication; it is a beautiful piece. And even when there were disagreements and hold ups during the process, he responded with kindness, patience and unwavering professionalism.
I've heard so many comments since publication about the book's gorgeous layout. He truly is a talented designer.
