I have been in the advertising business for 30 years, and in September of 2015, the Patrick Houston Design Studio turned ten years old.
In all those years there is nothing that I have not designed and designed well. From print ads and brochures, to billboards and signage, to brochures and magazines and books, to sales presentations and catalogs, to posters and flyers, and everything else you can imagine. Seriously, everything.
When I opened PHDS in 2005, I would guess that perhaps 70% of my work was in print design, with the majority of the rest being web/interactive work. Today, I would guess that more than 70% of my work is in web design and web development, with the majority of the rest being in print.
I’ve done portfolio worthy, award-winning creative and highly effective marketing work for companies like:
The portfolio you see here is a tiny, minuscule representation of my work, and I don’t update this page as often as I should. I don’t make nearly enough blog posts about my work and I don’t talk about my work on Facebook, Twitter and the like nearly enough. I had rather work for others than promote myself. There is very little of my work from the 20 years I spent in the advertising agency business that I can put my hands on anymore, so this portfolio is pretty limited to the last few years. I was never much for keeping track of my older work. I’d rather think about the next project.
So please do not think that if there is something you might want or need that you don’t see represented in this portfolio, that I have no experience doing. I’m pretty sure I do. At right is a few truly random samples of some of my older work.
