01Who am I? And why would I say something like that?

My name is Mark Hobbs and I'm a designer. I create print & web awesomeness. And no…I am not normal. I am much more than that. I'm extraordinary. I'm adaptable, loyal, ambitious & an Eagle Scout (shameless plug), which means that I am the cream of the crop. I live, breathe, drink and absolutely love design. I'm in love with ideas; building them, cultivating them, and watching them come to fruition. Nothing makes me happier.

My background is very diverse, ranging everywhere from digging ditches (true story), the restaurant business & even cutting down trees. All this has given me a very unique insight into communication. I understand what they want and why they want it. What they need and why they need it. And how they go about getting it. Which is why I am great at what I do.

I have used this insight to polish, cultivate and adapt my skills, in a never-ending mission to learn so that I can continue to be on the cutting-edge of information sharing. I'm like a sponge. I listen. I learn. I implement. Having me on your side, you can rest assured you will get the best of the best. Because second best will never do.

I'm ready to step it up. I want to change the world, I'm willing to do whatever it takes, and I'm looking for someone who has the same crazy aspirations. I hope that's you and I hope you're looking for someone willing to put it all on the line. Because you've found them. It's time to take it up a notch, and I'm ready. No matter the task, I can help you make it happen…scratch that… I WANT TO.

Everything. The foundation of skills you're looking for, the fresh face, mind and perspective you need. I have the technical skills necessary and more importantly, the drive and ambition required to make every project a success. But enough with the buzzwords. This is what I've been up to…

Including advertising in Professional Photographer magazine, trade show graphics for PPA's annual convention, Imaging USA, web graphics and site designs. I've been involved in all the processes from concept to completion. And…I have been running my own freelance design business as well, gaining valuable experiences otherwise not gained in an office environment.
