Jim Colbert

A personalized approach to your design, advertising, and illustration needs.

I've been doing this since 1982, when I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I've been a layout artist, a graphic designer, a senior designer, an art director, an illustrator and a copywriter for agencies and studios in Central Pennsylvania. Won awards. Played well with others. Learned a lot about what a good work ethic, talent and creativity will do.

I primarily teach graphic design now, and concentrate on working with like-minded clients I'm in synch with, including a host of performing artists, festivals, arts organizations, publishing companies, magazines and performing arts venues.

I don't profess to be a large agency. I don't throw in vague references to "our team of seasoned professionals" or phrases implying something I'm not.
