I had the good fortune of knowing Simeon through a friend of a friend. Well that doesn’t matter. What impressed me from the set was his ability to listen. He is keen to find out the client’s vision and needs and then make recommendations based on that. His work proves that not only is he creative and intelligent but also has the technical ability to execute his work and perform excellently. I also admire how versatile his work is, he really is a master of all and can do just about anything. He is efficient and effective. Besides, he explains his concepts in a very basic, simple and straightforward manner, it is impossible to miss his point. I think that the world needs such brilliant minds, he serves the goods!

Lets make what you need. I am a big advocate of showing skills in the areas that you are talented in. I have been a graphic designer for over 20 years. I've made every thing you can think of from newsletters to product design as well as run a print shop so I can help you learn the skills you need to create usable, print ready designs and teach you the tools needed to accomplish them. Whether you desire to create business cards and simple print items or you'd like to design complex brochures I can teach you the technical skills and get you familiar with the programs needed to take photos and edit them then lay them out in an organized and well designed format.

"My fiancé and I needed some last minute wedding announcements for our upcoming Las Vegas wedding. When I put the call out to some of my friends, I received a referral to try out Etana, and her company Society Jazz. Great decision!

After speaking to Etana over the telephone and emailing her the text info, she had 1st drafts within 24 hours! And after making a few adjustments we had our finished graphic design, and the actual paper announcements (plus personalized envelopes) shipped to our door on the 7th day!

Thank you Society Jazz for a professional and timely order. Great job!!"

"Etana is a great consultant. I have known her for many years and when it came time to open a graphic design studio for graphic designer wife, I asked Etana how to best go about it. She took the time to explain to me the ins and outs I would need to know in order to be the business side of the company. Mind you, I can't even color inside the lines so I leave all the design work to my wife and employees. But thanks to Etana I had a better understanding of what I was getting us into before leaping into an unfamiliar business to me."

"I hired Etana to help me create a perfect birthday invitation for my daughters 1st birthday party. She was help, profession, and very intuitive in her design work. She helped me through the process from discussed graphics, the overall look, color scheme, and details. She was there with me from start to finish. The outcome was AMAZING. My daughters invitation turned out better then I could have ever anticipated!!!!! Etana is an outstanding designer and I would HIGHLY recommend her for any teaching or design needs you may have. Don't bother looking for anyone else. She is the BEST!!!"
