The BEST graphic artist I have worked with in the past 20 years. Found him (surprisingly) on Craigslist. Extremely fast, affordable, and the best quality of work I’ve ever received. He very carefully listened to my ideas and produced graphics exactly reflecting my vision. Shawn’s work exceeded my expectations. His quality of work was also complimented by the printing company who usually reserves comments.

Shawn at Graticle is a great person to work with. He created a fantastic new interactive website for the Academy Theater which is easy for us to maintain. He’s always available for support and to make larger changes if we need them. I highly recommend him for your custom website.
