Jerry Southwick Graphic Artist in Walnut Creek, CA

What sets me apart from other graphic artists

I believe that my clients would tell you that I take the time to truly understand their business and the problem they would like me to solve. I approach each project as if it were for my own business, and I take into account the many factors they are concerned with — cost, time, goals, results…

I believe my clients would also tell you that I am a creative problem-solver, that has technical skills to go along with a solid sense of design.

I have worked with Jerry on a number of projects for a number of organizations for almost 20 years. He is easy to work with, does terrific work, and is very responsive to our demands.


We have been working with Jerry for several years now, and he continues to be an extremely valuable and reliable resource for us.  Whether developing a new logo, creating a new web site, or designing corporate collateral, Jerry is easy to work with and follows through on his commitments in a timely fashion, ensuring complete satisfaction with the end result.


Jerry is a visual problem-solver. I always enjoy working with him because he finds ingenious ways to help people and their organizations express themselves, while taking the time to fully understand their superpowers.
