Talking Puffins is your 'go-to' place for your digital graphic design and photo fix needs!
From graphic design for both print and web, to multi-media presentations, to a wide range of photo restoration and enhancement — we have done it!
We are based in the DFW metropolitan area, and technology (especially high speed cable internet!) allows us to deliver the same personal touch and attention to detail to our clients on the east and west coast as it does to our local clients.
I honed my design and creative skills while working at a non-profit bellydance organization that put out a quarterly magazine. It started out life as a 36-page grayscale endeavor and when I left almost 5 years later it was a 96-page color magazine! I made a lot of friends and contacts working on the magazine, and for the first few years I mainly did work for bellydancers, which you can see in my portfolio.
Over the years I have expanded my client base, and most recently, worked on a photo from a recent construction theft! My first “crime-scene” photo — how cool is that???!!!!

It's more than a slide show...it's a work of art!
