JB Pictures works with clients via email, phone, in person and in studio.

JB Pictures Design creates graphic design that both works for the client's needs and that is aesthetically pleasing to the client. My job as a designer is to listen carefully to the client and to clearly establish what their needs are. I bill hourly because I have found it to be the best way to save the client money and to arrive at finished artwork with fewer delays and do-overs.

Most of my jobs do not require multiple adjustments and rarely have I missed the mark on the first samples shown to the client. I work transparently with the client: you'll know ahead of time what I'm doing and with each sample submission via email, how long it takes and exactly what I did. This allows us to work precisely towards finished artwork without any guessing or assumptions.

All decisions made that lead to an end result of finished custom art or graphic design are purely subjective. What is appealing to one person can be unappealing to the next person. My goal is to satisfy my clients.

"One of the best things about working close to nature is the inspiration that comes to my doorstep on a daily basis: birds singing, deer crossing, rabbits hopping and squirrels scampering up, across and down the trees. Here in Sonoma County there is a real sense of the change of seasons and getting to watch the slow evolution from one season to the next is often breathtaking..."

What do YOU want to create today?

Joseph Browning is a lifelong artist, classically trained in drawing and painting. After receiving his BA degree in Illustration and spending 12 years as a professional fine arts painter and illustrator, Joseph founded JB Pictures Design in 2000 to provide Graphic Design solutions to his growing number of clients needing these services. Using digital applications such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash and Dreamweaver along with digital photography, JB Pictures Design is today a full service design business specializing in helping to artistically and graphically define other businesses.

Initial Consultations, up to 90 minutes, are always FREE.

From start to finish, JB Pictures Design can implement and complete a wide range of jobs from copywriting to all the steps necessary for complete websites and print-ready graphic design pieces. To get the best value in the time we spend together, I've come up with options on each category page that you may consider before we work together.

JB Pictures Design excels at providing design services from concept to final product. The initial concept work is really the heart of most jobs and it holds the most value for the time put into it. The conception of the ideas to be utilized in the job go toward determining every aspect of the job. Anything you can dream or imagine I can probably create. I am professionally trained in Digital Graphic Design, Illustration, Drawing and Painting and can handle a large number of techniques, styles, moods and complex combinations of elements or themes. Value Option: If you like a particular artist or era of art, I can emulate and attribute that artist's particular style or that era's general style to your job. There is very little I cannot create or re-create.

It is very important that I establish trust with all my clients in order to have successful outcomes. For most jobs I can provide a "ballpark" cost estimate during the initial consultation. For other more complex jobs, like websites and multi-panel brochures, I can work with a client's budget to gauge how much graphic detail to utilize or not in order to stay within the budget. On all jobs, I work transparently with clients by providing email samples that include the date, the time spent and what exactly I did, so that over time the client comes to understand both the process and how long things take. The client is always aware of how much time is being spent and therefore how much the job is costing as the job evolves.

"Working with Joseph was a wonderful experience! He helped me figure out what I wanted my logo to express about my business, and then developed those concepts into an amazing finished product. I love my logo so much that I got a tattoo of it... I am definitely committed to my business' new look! I get compliments on my logo and newly designed business cards all the time. Not only am I completely thrilled with the finished product, but I am also impressed with how fun, fast, and affordable the entire process was!" —Laurel Scarioni, CPDT-KA, CNWI Pawsitive Results Critter Academy
"Hi Joseph, last year it became obvious to me that I needed a new logo but instead of going to a professional, I took a shortcut and had a logo designed online. What a mistake and a waste of money. Luckily I met you. Working with you has been a joy. You not only designed a logo but also helped me with branding for Facebook, business cards and banners. You listened to what I wanted and needed but yet gave valuable input when needed. You worked efficiently and always met deadlines. Thank you again for all of your creative input. I look forward to working with you again in the future." —Chris, owner Chris Kittredge Photography.com
"JB, I can't tell you how fantastic it was to see my business cards yesterday, you made my vision a reality. I was extremely impressed with your commitment and dedication to satisfy my goal with the Woodpecker Roofing logo. I truly enjoyed working with you and I look forward to creating something with you again!" —David Petker, Owner Woodpecker Roofing.com
"Hey Joseph, a quick but heartfelt note of appreciation to you for the latest round of brochures! We received them on Thursday, and I think they are the best brochures that we have done to date – not just you and I, but LEAPNOW – back to our early days." —Sam Bull, Executive Director LEAPNOW.org: Transforming Education
