BACKGROUND

EXPERIENCE

"I'm still coloring!"

The fascination and sense of achievement I get "creating" started from the time I could hold a crayon. That interest carried on throughout all my years of schooling where I studied commercial art, logo design, technical & digital illustration, drafting & architecture ... and I think I may even recall a few different "Art 101" courses too?!

My various "career paths" have also never strayed too far from the art world ...

• Art Director (and eventual business partner) for a modeling agency.

• Art Director and Co-Owner at a full service entertainment and booking agency.

• Lead Graphic Artist at a Graphics/Printing company and at an apparel company.

All this experience working with many independent small entities as well as numerous Fortune 500 companies has formed an indelible mark on me that I carry on into my own independent "freelance" business I call e14designs! I offer "Award Winning Professional Quality at Affordable Pricing" while maintaining good timely service!

Today, I'm still coloring - although with a widely expanded coloring book. So, if you're in need of any services I offer, email me or give me a call (630-235-0894) and let me show you how I can help!

Looking forward to have the opportunity to build a long prosperous relationship with you.

Shown here are samples I've made for bands, bars and Production companies that I've had the opportunities to work with!

  • COMPLETED FILES

    Unless previously arranged and agreed upon, all work created by e14 will remain in possession of e14designs.

    This keeps your cost down while avoiding future file conflicts when jobs have to re-ordered.

    NOTE: Logo work generally includes the copying of or delivery of files in the design package you may purchase.

  • SUPPLYING FILES

    When supplying files for print, please provide any Adobe software file (InDesign, Illustrator, HIGH RES Photoshop, etc).

    When supplying files for web, we accept any Adobe software file (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, etc), plus your standard .jpeg, .png, .gif and .svg files.

    For jobs created in Quark, Microsoft Office or any other program not listed, please call to discuss other options (630-235-0894).

  • TYPES OF FILES (vector, .eps, .jpg, .tif, .psd)

    A brief summary of important file types you should know ...

    Vector: Generally a file created in Adobe Illustrator. These files are normally used AND needed when you have a logo or design that needs to be used where you may need to greatly increase the overall size without losing quality. Very important for companies to have this type of file of their logo!

    .eps: Another files normally created in Illustrator and generally used for high resolution printing.

    .jpg: A file generally used for web images and usually in rgb (red, green, blue) color format.

    .tif and .psd: Files created by Adobe Photoshop generally saved and used for high resolution (300 dpi) printing purposes.

  • ART DISCLAIMER / PORTFOLIO USAGE

    By choosing e14 you are consenting that all or partial art/designs may be used by Eric Steinhardt (aka. e14designs) for portfolio purposes. This may include final chosen designs and/or preliminary designs; not excluding usage of showing final printed samples.

    In addition any websites created by e14 may or may not include an e14/Eric Steinhardt signature link.

  • BILLING

    DESIGN: All design work is due half up front and the balance due upon completion before files may be submitted and/or copied and supplied the customer.

    PRINT: All print jobs (excluding design) are due 100% up front.

    WEB: All website work is due half up front and balance due upon completion of website before site is posted live.

  • DELIVERY

    All jobs must be picked up by the customer unless previously arranged. Shipping is available for all jobs but will include added S&H expenses. Ask for rates when asking for quotes.

  • LOW PRICING

    I know what operating costs can amount to and have had to deal with that same issue. Therefore, the simple outlook is to rely on higher volume over higher prices. Plus, you'll see that quality is in no way sacrificed within that philosophy.

  • THE NAME?

    The top 5 reasons to choose "e14" ...

    5- The name wasn't taken

    4- I have LOTS of "e" designs from my previous company!

    3- It's my first name initial and that's what people call me

    2- It's the 14th "career/job title" move I've made

    1- simply, 14 IS MY LUCKY NUMBER!!

  • "I/WE" - There's no "I" in team

    You may have noticed and if you question areas within this site where I may refer to things getting handled by "I" or "we" - it's because after all the years I've been in this business, I have never tried to imply and/or take credit that "I" alone do all the work.

    I've spent WAY too many years building great relationships with co-workers, friends, vendors and many other people who have helped (and continue to) meet the many needs I fulfill for you.

    It is with their help and my gratitude that I feel blessed to have them on my team and be able to pass that on to you.
