doug hughes

Let me introduce myself. My name is Doug Hughes, I have been involved in the graphic design and illustration field for 45 years.


I served my time as a graphic designer in the printing industry way back in the late seventies for which I will always be grateful. This “apprenticeship” allowed me to experience the basic grounding in a print shop environment and the original paste up boards, spray glue and typesetting machines!


I started drawing from a young age with basic pencil and paper drawings, sketching, painting and currently still practice the old skills of pencil, ink and paint on paper.

Most of my design skills and knowledge are self taught.


I moved into digital design media in the late eighties when a friend introduced me to a “computer”. My life changed from that day onward.

Today I combine traditional art methods with the wonderful world of digital media.


I am confident and comfortable working on both Apple Mac (Adobe: InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Muse, Flash, Fireworks and Dreamweaver) and Windows (CorelDRAW, ADOBE; Photoshop, Dreamweaver).


I have an extensive portfolio of Graphic Design, Custom Illustration, Calligraphy, Fine Art, Logo Design, Cartooning, Package Design, Annual Reports, School Yearbooks and Web Designing skills.


These skills have afforded me the privilege of interacting in and serving a wide variety of businesses and organizations.


Enjoy viewing my portfolio!
