Joseph Browning outside the JB Pictures studio in beautiful Sebastopol, CA. "One of the best things about working close to nature is the inspiration that comes to my doorstep on a daily basis: birds singing, deer crossing, rabbits hopping and squirrels scampering up, across and down the trees. Here in Sonoma County there is a real sense of the change of seasons and getting to watch the slow evolution from one season to the next is often breathtaking..."
How to work effectively with JB Pictures:
From start to finish, JB Pictures can implement and complete a wide range of jobs from copywriting to all the steps necessary for complete websites and print-ready graphic design pieces. To get the best value in the time we spend together, I've come up with options on each page that you may consider before we work together. Simply stated, you want to be as clear about what you want and as prepared as possible before starting work with JB Pictures. The more you know what you want, the less time I'll need to spend on developing concepts and perusing options and, therefore, the less the job will cost.
JB Pictures excels at providing design services from concept to final product. The initial concept work is really the heart of most jobs and it holds the most value for the time put into it. The conception of the ideas to be utilized in the job go toward determining every aspect of the job. Anything you can dream or imagine I can probably create. I am professionally trained in Illustration, Drawing and Painting and can handle a large number of techniques, styles, moods and complex combinations of elements or themes. Value Option: If you like a particular artist or era of art, I can emulate and attribute that artist's particular style or that era's general style to your job. There is very little I cannot create or re-create.
only in the eye of the beholder.

Graphic Designers are the visual interpreters of ideas:
JB Pictures Credo:
The primary responsibility of JB Pictures is to create design that both works for the client's needs and that is aesthetically pleasing to the client.
All decisions made that lead to an end result of finished custom art or graphic design are purely subjective. What is appealing to one person can be unappealing to the next person. As long as the client is satisfied, the goal of JB Pictures has been met.
There exist thousands of options and countless decision choices in the process of creating graphic design. Our job working together is to ultimately decide on one set of options or one option parameter and go forward from there. Once an option is chosen, however, it can always be expanded upon and redefined again and again to essentially create new versions of that original option.
It is important for the client to stand behind their option choices when working with a graphic designer. It is far too easy to be swayed by other choices, other options and the opinions of others.
Once a design is final and all the options are chosen, it is the client's job to believe in and support their final choice of design options when presenting their graphic design to the world.
Ultimately it is helpful to remember one thing: The better you can confidently stand behind your design choices, the better they'll appear to the world around you and your business. It is an amazing thing to witness. Everytime, all the time.
