  • Introduction

    I enjoy the blessing of creating something out of nothing. Capturing the essence of an idea. Currently for the giftware market as a product designer. Wrestling with new concept requests for something brilliant and different. Digging deep into ideas with rough sketches. Flushing out mid-level story thoughts. Executing illustrated presentations to the desired level required. Supporting sculpting vendors with full view schematics. Effective illustrations for decals and decal fits. Reviewing VQS -vendor quality samples. Rendering & scrap support for advertising. All presented to fit your budget. If I may help you in any way to complete your vision please contact me. I look forward to working with you and seeing what we can create together. Best Regards – John R D’Amico
