Cross-Media Designer

Steve brings over 25 years of graphic design experience to Metzgers. His responsibilities as a cross-media designer are to design (or reconfigure) and program print items to allow them to be customized, proofed, and ordered directly from the web by end users.

His attention to detail, editorial skills, and critical eye help provide our clients with the highest quality work and an approximation of the greater audience’s perspective on the client’s bigger picture.

Steve has a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing from Lourdes College. He lives with his wife, Camilla, in a quiet, well-preserved 1930s neighborhood in West Toledo. They dabble in interests like decorative arts (esp. 1920-1950), pre-WWI American literature, and original pressings of be-bop 78s, among numerous other nerdy, low-impact pursuits.

Steve has also been through five classic cars and over fifty vintage guitars.
