My name is Rita Swanson and I am the creative partner at Grafixwest Design Studio. My continuing education and experience have flourished during the past 30 years while designing and producing graphic materials in a fast changing design world. Graphic design (arranging typography, illustrations and photos in an informative and well thought out design) or illustration (technical, instructional as well as eye catching) for print production and web design are the areas that I can be of help to you.

A few companies with the type of work assignments completed:

I love to draw whether instructional, decorative or even cartoonish. It could be for a simple instructional drawing on the back of product packaging or an idea you have that doesn’t exist so it needs to be illustrated for communication purposes.
