Edward Flynn’s Digital Imaging Portfolio Years ago on one rainy blustery day in Manhattan, while I was crossing a street a person screamed at me, “BETTER WEAR A HAT!” At first it amused me. But then later that day the phrase kept rolling around in my head until it became clear what the person was yelling; It wasn’t merely a loud suggestion to protect against rain, it was a directive for how to live life! Hats and lots of them. It’s pretty hard to quantify all that I do: Digital Artist probably comes the closest. Thanks to working for 20 years in the New York City advertising and graphic design fields, I’ve had to learn to wear lots of different hats: Illustrator, Art Director, Production Manager, and Digital Retoucher are just a few. With the advent of the web, I also added Web Designer/Webmaster (joomla, wordpress, CSS, PHP, Flash, etc.). In 2009, once the majority of my clients worked solely over the web with me, I realized I no longer needed to be trapped in the confines of NYC, so I put on a cowboy hat and headed west to Portland, Oregon. (…Of course once I arrived I found everyone in Portland wears either a pork pie hipster hat or a wool cap.) Never the less, here I sit in Portland, happily working away with clients from all over the country. Clients maintain my services becuase they value the ease of working with me, my willingness to go the extra mile to service their needs, and my expertise. Thanks to all my years of being in this business, there’s very little that I haven’t dealt with or haven’t a solution to. The following is a selection of fairly recent work. To see even more, swing by my website, betterwearahat.com. Feel free to contact me if you have a question or would like to see my resume. Plus, if you need something created on a ridiculously quick turnaround, toss my name into the hat.
