I'm Bill Cook and I'm a graphic artist, Web designer, illustrator and copy editor.

For over 15 years, I've produced work for great companies and organizations including the St. Paul Pioneer Press, SmartMoney.com, WebReference.com, Minnesota Children's Museum, Partners & Hunt Creative Group, Dow Jones & Company, TelArts, Trans World Entertainment and McGraw-Hill. If you need design or editorial assistance with a project, just drop me a line. I'd love to help.

Design

I'll do my research. I'll get to know your business and your brand. The result? Design work that reinforces your specific communications strategy. After all, it's not about what I like. It's about making you look good.

About Bill

At Creighton University, I majored in English literature and minored in fine arts. After graduating from Creighton, I earned a master's degree in English and American literature from the Ohio State University.

After leaving school, I worked as an illustrator, proofreader and copy editor in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and New York, New York.

I entered the online world in 1997 when I joined SmartMoney.com, where I worked first as a copy editor and later as a senior producer. In 2001, I moved back to my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, and began a career as a full-time freelance illustrator, designer and content developer.

Some of my favorite things: Groundhog Day, the New York Giants, classic mystery novels, chicken vindaloo, The Third Man, Nino Rota's film scores, The IT Crowd and the Cincinnati Reds.
