Chad Carlson, Owner

I am a Visual Communications Designer, specializing in Print Design, Web Design, Photography and Photo Retouching/Restoration. My career literally began the moment I could hold a pencil and camera. I embraced the advent of digital technology, bringing my skills as a traditional artist/designer and photographer to a new level of excellence.

With 40 years of experience in Photography and Art in all its forms, I have evolved into a well-rounded Visual Communications Designer. I strive to deliver the very best to each of my clients.

I will always be honest, straight forward, efficient and reliable.


Graphic Design

Contact the creator before copying. The Guild Supports “Ask First.”

  • Images within Guild Member Portfolios are for Web browser viewing only.
  • Any unauthorized downloading or duplication of images is prohibited by copyright law.
  • Use of the images, including comp usage, must be negotiated with the creator of the image prior to any use.

We ask you to remember that many designers, artists and illustrators may not want to have their images used in any way, including in agency presentations. Any use, including “comping,” implies value that is worth compensation. Art or photography in portfolios submitted for a job should not be copied for any use, including client presentation or “comping,” without the creator’s permission. In case after case, the creator’s property rights have been upheld, and those caught engaging in these practices were penalized, paying large fines to the artists.
