ABOUT HICKMAN DESIGNS

CREATIVE WEB & GRAPHIC DESIGN SINCE 2002

I specialize in the creation of marketing materials for businesses of all shapes and sizes in the Central Texas area.

It is my mission to create effective web and graphic design solutions in a manner that conveys the vision myclients have for their businesses, adheres to deadlines and budgets, and culminates with a client that is completely satisfied. I make my client’s goals my own.

Simple color schemes and layouts that take your organization’s message and goals into consideration are my general rule of thumb.

My client’s input is always added to the process. Because this is their image or their web site, they should have a say in it’s outcome. I want you to be 100 percent involved, and satisfied with your project. A happy client , with a product that helps to accomplish their business’ goals and message is my top priority.

It’s no secret that successful campaigns stem from great creative solutions. Every piece of marketing collateral, from simple business cards to complex websites, is an important opportunity to communicate your brand image to consumers. Therefore, developing compelling, on-target business communications is the primary goal of every project I take on. I have extremely low overhead relative to most competing agencies enabling me to provide a greater ROI for my clients. I don’t have layers of management, high-priced account representatives or expensive headquarters.

I maintain a belief that by eliminating traditional agency red tape and offering direct contact with the cdesigner, I can better serve your needs and meet today’s demanding deadlines with insightful communications solutions. For more information on my services please contact me at 512-966-2395.

Hickman Designs at the beach in Cape MayI am a graduate of the Art Institute Of Philadelphia where I attained my BS in Animation and Media Arts in 2002.

Born and raised in Cape May, New Jersey, I have enjoyed a lifelong love of drawing and graphic design. I possess a strong foundation in the traditional arts including composition, illustration and cartooning. This love of illustration led me to the Art Institute of Philadelphia where I spent 4 years in the Masters Animation program honing my skills and learning the craft of both traditional and 3D animation.

Upon graduation, I studied Web Design and Web Graphics at Penn State University Abington. Upon completion of my studies at Penn State, I hit the ground running with the founding of Hickman Designs Digital Arts & Media.

In the Fall of 2007, my family and I moved to Georgetown, Texas. Since our move to Texas, I have held positions with both Creative Agencies and as Marketing Director for other Austin area businesses. In 2009, I opened Hickman Designs Web & Graphic Design full time.

I am an active member of the Georgetown community having volunteered as a Pop Warner Youth Football coach, and Booster Club Board Member for both the Band and Baseball programs at East View High School. I currently live in Georgetown with my wife Jenipher and sons Ben and Will.
