ABOUT

My name is Alan Pierce, I'm a graphic designer currently located in Nanaimo, BC. I have a Bachelor's in Graphic Design and a culinary background, so I love working with the hospitality industry whenever possible. I believe in engaging my clients at every step of the design process so that their vision and design solution are as close as possible. I've been freelancing for five years and would love to chat if you have any ideas or design needs.

*Any additional hours will be charged at $30/hour after the client has been warned of overage.

*Roll-over hours are used against the next months billing cycle. They have no cash value, and are non-compounding.
