Andrew Rado: About

Ideas that engage + a clear message = design that delivers.

You need your design to do more than just "look pretty,"—you need it to be compelling enough to prompt people to interact. Since 2001, I’ve created design that delivers for businesses large and small, corporate and local, for-profit and non-profit, agency work and freelance work—I’m a designer with the full-range spectrum of experience.

My diverse portfolio has given me an insider’s view of the design needs of a range of industries and groups of different sizes: how will I meet the needs of a corporate client such as Visa, versus a small non-profit such as From the Garden to the Table?

The answer: Understand what my clients need the design to communicate to users, and create design that users want to engage with. Logos need to communicate powerful branding messages. Websites need to be structured to encourage user interaction. Print ads need to be enticing enough to deliver profitability. Design that communicates a powerful message—and gets the users of it to take action—is design that works.

If you need a freelancer or someone to work on a contract basis with your in-house team, I’m there.

Some People Are Just Born That Way

Drawing is a habit. I’m a collector of beautiful typography. I eat design books for lunch. Nature feeds my soul and inspires new ideas. I take photos of clouds every day.

I keep it light and playful, so that the good ideas continue to flow.

I’ve created a visual playground on Instagram to share some of these ideas.

We Need Each Other

I’m available for freelance client work, contract work in-house, and collaborating with agencies. Let’s get started. Tell me about you, your business, the type of work you need—and then tell me a thing or two about what you want your design to do for your business. In an ideal world, what would your ideal client do upon seeing your business card, looking at your website...and beyond?
