About Me

Let me introduce myself. My name is Pat Yates and I am a freelance graphic designer working from my home office in New Market, Maryland designing a variety of work using an iMac and the latest software: Adobe Creative Suites: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, along with QuarkXpress and Microsoft Office. I have worked successfully in all phases of graphic design. Working with clients, as well as printers, copywriters, illustrators and photographers for over 18 years. My organizational skills and attention to detail allow me to produce quality work while meeting tight deadlines. My experience includes designing and art directing Annual Reports, Magazines, Brochures, Directories, Signage, Stationery, Logos, Logo Standards, Menus, Mailers, Advertising, Invitations, Promotional and Convention Materials. A good part of my experience includes working for the corporate offices of Choice Hotels International. I was their top designer for 13 years. The rest of my experience consists of 2 small studios and my own freelance business. A few of my clients are Sharp&Co. (a marketing firm based in Rockville, MD) and 123 Print (an ecommerce stationery business based in Frederick, MD).
