I use my Macs for writing, photography, and graphic design

The Mac Help Desk evolved from years of maintaining my own creative systems

The reason I got a Mac in the first place was for print and graphic design and to write feature articles. Then came the mysteries of HTML and web site publishing. I am able help others to understand Adobe's Photoshop and InDesign because I have done hundreds of projects including photo editing, color print jobs, and photos and graphics for the Web. Today I craft streamlined, muscular prose, and print and web layouts, and enjoy this work as much as being your friendly neighborhood Mac geek.

 

Creative Services

Print

The Mac was the first computer to give us Desktop Publishing: fast, affordable page layout and typesetting.

Give me a shout when when you need:

  • Business cards
  • Brochures
  • Flyers
  • Posters
  • Booklets

Good digital color printing is available locally for reasonable rates.

Web

Everybody and Every Business Needs to Be On the Web. I will get you set up with the things you need:

  • A domain name
  • Web hosting service
  • Some web pages.
  • Content (words and images)
  • A secure contact form
  • Personal e-mail

You will have control over your accounts and files. And with a little database magic you can edit text without touching the code.

Writing

I am a nationally published non-fiction feature writer who can craft your message clearly with an economy of words.

At Mike Raymond & Associates in San Francisco I worked on Fortune 500 firms' internal and external communications, including Bridgeway Telecommunications' proposal to the United States Olympic Committee.

I also enjoy and have a special feel for organizing and producing technical, educational, and how-to materials.
