My Art Direction and Patent Drafting may seem like entirely different disciplines – possibly polar opposites – but I see them both as opportunities for clear and effective commercial communication. The audience for each is obviously quite different, the “product” certainly differs, but the objective is the same – to convey features and benefits with economy and precision.

My years of design and art direction in advertising have proven invaluable for my capacity to communicate new inventions to Patent Examiners. Figures are not just technical illustrations, they’re technical illustrations with a strict and specific purpose.

My technical illustration skills and experience are not only useful functional tools for graphic design, the constraints required by patent drafting have sharpened and refined my ability to clearly communicate marketing strategies of all kinds.

Whether patent application, full publication, or anything in between, I look forward to discussing how I can help you make your next project a certain success.
