Steve was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Mercyhurst University in May of 2008 with a B.A. in the field of graphic design and I have been designing ever since.
I joined the R. Frank Media team back in the summer of 2008. By combining both skill sets, this has made me broaden my capabilities in both experience and with clients.
I specialize in logo design, brochures, stationary, print ads, web ads as well as my favorite: sports designs. I have designed and maintained websites, trafficked web ads, as well as event planning for big events while working 12 years with the Erie Times-News. Odds are, you have seen a lot of my work around the Erie area, but just didn’t know it. Some of my favorite events to help plan and design for have been: Varsity Cup, RockErie Music Awards, Erie’s Choice Awards and Commitment to Erie Awards to name a few.
As mentioned before, my favorite events to shoot and themes to design are all things sports. Having the opportunity to photograph the Erie SeaWolves and Erie BayHawks has opened more doors to teams like the Erie Otters and even shooting the NFL. Because of these experiences, I have had the opportunity to work with each team with graphics and marketing purposes.
With coaching high school basketball on my plate as well, I have used my skill-set there too. You may have seen sports banners/posters of players I have coached up in local gyms. This has transitioned to design and photography for other schools and sports programs and I couldn’t be happier.
