Hello and welcome to my website. I go by Mike (my full name is Jon Michael Eberly). I am a graphic designer from the USA based in Mantova (Mantua), Italy. I help folks develop great print design, solid branding, effective websites, and more. I pride myself in the ability to deliver an end product which is both useful and visually-appealing. I love the challenge of finding the right balance between content and visual aesthetics, and applying that consistently across a family of projects and through various media.
I’ve worked on a wide range of projects and have over ten years of experience. During much of this time I was senior graphic designer in the marketing department at Eastern Mennonite University – a Christian liberal arts university in Virginia. Because of the experience I gained there, I have a particular interest and expertise in the area of marketing and design for institutions of higher ed.
In 2006 my wife and I opted for a change of lifestyle/setting and moved from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia to Italy. Actually, since we both grew up in Italy it was sort of like coming back home. I am enjoying the exposure to European design styles I see around me here – from the classic Italian style to the modern minimalistic Norther European design. It is also fun to have clients from the US, Italy, and from other parts of the world. So, no matter where you live, I’d love to help you out with your next design project. Just keep in mind that I’m fluent in English and Italian (and dabble dangerously with Spanish), but sorry, no Russian, Farsi, or Esperanto!
In my spare time I enjoy guitar-playing, photography, art, and various outdoor activities. But “spare time” is a rare thing these days since I am also a part time stay-at-home dad and spend my mornings with my one-year-old son.
Puntografix.com is my personal website – a place where I can display some of my work, meet other people, and ramble on about design, art, or other totally unrelated topics! I plan to update my blog and portfolio on a regular basis, so make sure you subscribe to my feed or follow me on Twitter if you’d like to stay up to date with what’s going on at puntografix.
