Heading 3

Doug Stevens: Visual Journalist
<Versatile/> <Precise/> <Reliable/>
Need a blow-out graphic for your project but don't have the staff to dedicate to it? I have over 25 years experience creating informative and appealing visuals for influential publications, most notably the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post.
My background is architectural and technical; developing clear visual presentations of complicated buildings is a specialty. But I can also sketch with a pencil, if you need narrative illustration. I have been the sketch artist on three Pulitzer Prize-finalist stories in the LA Times, one of which won. On the marketing side, I've designed season ticket packages for the Washington Wizards, Capitals and Mystics. Skill-wise, I'm versatile and have the ability to find an eye-catching solution, regardless of topic. I know basic HTML / CSS / Javascript. An added plus: I have worked in the newspaper biz for over 20 years and have been battle-tested meeting deadlines.
 
Vector Illustration
Need illustration that's stylized for a more lighthearted theme, or maybe you'd like a barbed, editorial edge? I've done that, too. I generally work in my sketchbook with a pencil to present the client with successively tighter roughs and that way hone in on what they're looking for.
A deft touch
 
One thing I've been able to do since I was a kid is draw. The subject and tone of some projects require a more sensitive approach, as opposed to a sterile and coldly analytical one.
 
Such a project was The Manhunt for Christopher Dorner, written by  Christopher Goffard of the Los Angeles Times, a 2014 Pulitzer Prize finalist. Click here to see more sketches.
