About Me aka Pillinger Graphics
I've been doing creative graphics design work for about 18 years. I started with animal photos because I love my pets. I got my big start with designing and self printing holiday cards for a good many German Shepherd Dog lovers whom I met on a web forum! I had a very sick German Shepherd dog (vaccinosis) who my husband and I loved dearly. She was costing loads of money in vet care, and my new found friends on the web board were wonderful about helping me by way of ordering my creatively designed and home printed German Shepherd Christmas cards as well as other breed specific, pet holiday cards, with their own pets on them. A good many of those designs are actually available to order in my online store today.
Over time I also worked on collages, memorial images, even dabbled with mostly minor photo repair of a scanned copy of an old photograph which had long scratches and small tears. Web Site design factored into this time frame as well. I started over 16 years ago with a web site of my own, showing my pets and listing increasing numbers of healthier pet food choices. Eventually, I left any & all home printing of any design work in the dust. With a selection of online printing companies; and many people with at-home photo smart printers of their own, not to mention superstores locally with photo centers, I no longer offer home printing of photos, cards, or other work. But, I still do greeting cards, graphics design work. I can set up a design you request to be purchased in my online store so that you can order your custom designed, pet holiday greeting cards and other products online.
Web site design took up so much of my time for several years and I don't create as many greeting card designs as I'd like. I've also got a burning desire to paint on canvas! I've lightened my load of clients gradually to make time for myself, as well as other home projects. In the process of helping my clients move on, I found content management systems (CMS) that I can use to build you a web site and then YOU can edit the website yourselves! In 2013 I've left my complicated & expensive web site design program suite in the dust (well, almost..) and took to the ease of content management, even for my own web site.
Now that I'm (still) freeing up time for myself, maybe in future you'll see some creative artwork on canvas posted to my web site. And maybe I'll even get that bloopers and poopers (photography) web site built that I've been too busy to work on for years. :)
Best wishes to you all for your web site & business endeavors. Check back here periodically as I do intend to have some "help" pages of tips and information on building and editing your own sites.
Kind regards, Laura Gordon
