I MAKE PRETTY PICTURES

HELLO

THIS IS WHO I AM

WHO I AM

My name is Sam Daugherty. I’m a dreamer-turned-designer-turned-programmer…oh, turned teacher—like, actual high school teacher. It wasn’t my original path, but I found that doing what you love trumps a major paycheck any day. I really love teaching, but I missed the creativity of my old life. So here I am, doing both. I’m not a company, I’m just a guy doing what he loves. This site is my chance to show off some of my work, and hopefully help you in the process.

WHAT I DO

My skills include Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML/CSS, JavaScript (to a degree), pencil and paper, writing copy, and I can make some damn fine tacos. I bring a lot to the table – creativity, expertise, professionalism, hard work. But most importantly: passion. I love what I do. I’ve worked with some wonderful organizations and various companies over the past 12 years, and I’d love to work with you as well. So check out my work and then call me.

HOW I ROLL

A lot of people ask me, “12 ounces of what?” They look curiously, like I’m going to say beer (it’s not beer). Twelve ounces refers to spraypaint. See, when I was a much younger version of myself, I was a graffiti artist. I traded my Krylon for a computer years ago, but the creativity, community, and lessons have stuck with me over the years. It’s kind of how I got to where I am today. So, in honor of that, I named my site Twelve Ounces. Think of it as an homage to my creative past.

THIS IS HOW I WORK

GOOD DESIGN
Need a website? I can do that for you. Do you just need a new logo? I’ve got you covered. No matter what you need, I would be happy to work with you to come up with the best possible solution to your business needs. It doesn’t have to be hard, and it doesn’t have to be scary. It just has to be good.
MOBILE DEVELOPMENT
In this day and age, the majority of users are going to be accessing your site from their phone or tablet. So it’s important that your site looks just as good on a small screen as it does on a big one. Every site I develop uses “scalable architecture,” which means it’ll look the same no matter how you view it.
COMMUNICATE
Communication is key if you want the job done right. It seems simple, but it’s something you get less and less today. Communication is part of my job, and good communication is the difference between just getting a finished product, and getting a finished product that you want. So let’s talk.

THIS IS WHAT I DO

My career in design spans the better part of a decade, so there’s a lot of work to be proud of. I don’t want to waste a lot of precious space displaying everything, and I don’t want to waste your time sifting through it. This is just a sample of some of my most recent work, but also some of my favorites over the past several years.
