I Create Professional Designs that get your brand noticed

Graphic Design

Designing effective media can be invaluable in supporting the marketing function of your business. I create new, modern, strong imagery for your business that will have an impact in your industry and create an impression which portrays confidence with new and existing clients

Brand Identity

A strong visual identity will have a substantial impact on the way your business is perceived in the market and assist you in reaching a broader customer base while encouraging a positive sentiment amongst your target audience and delivering an advantage in the marketplace

Web Design

An online presence is a powerful tool for any business and provides an opportunity to be as accessible as possible while enabling prospective customers to learn about your brand proposition. It is a cost effective way to regularly interact with customers and encourage valuable engagement

Copywriting

Effective copywriting is a system of ideas and engaging visual behaviors that communicate what you do in a uniquely memorable way. For my clients I partner great ideas with functional design to produce powerful tools that connect with their customers in new and exciting ways

Skills on Design

These percentages are made up but I stand by them!.

Hello my name is Micah Potter and growing up I studied the circus arts of juggling, unicycle riding, stilt-walking and trapeze by former Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey performers. Somewhere along the way the need to seek a more equitable return for my time became inevitable…with this bit of wisdom I decided to head to college!

After graduating with degrees in Marketing & Advertising Management (and receiving Portland State University’s “Marketing Student of the Year Award”) I spent several years working with commercial artists learning the ropes! In 2006 I started Slyfox Graphics with a primary emphasis on apparel design. As time evolved I began to receive inquiries about doing additional projects that pushed me outside my creative comfort zone. A logo here, a web site there, and before I knew it in 2009 I was taking the cold feet-first plunge to work exclusively as a designer.

What I have learned over the years is that most small to medium size companies need a resource for promotional design. This is where I shine as a collaborative outside team member! You will find that I am professional, attentive, communicative, clear and concise on how I can assist you all with a no pressure approach. I know trust is hard to earn so I work harder to ensure I deserve it from you!

I value market recognition, good design and the way your brand or product is perceived by others. Although inspiration for promotional design can come from almost anything, the best information always comes from you – my client. This helps us determine what your promotional goals are and lets me know how I can exceed them.

After I have worked with you to come up with some ideas, I won’t rest until everything is perfect because only the best makes the final cut, and as my client you will be getting nothing short of my hardest efforts to create solid designs for your branding needs. It’s this level of passion and determination that I put into every project that will, in turn, get you noticed. Don't wait any longer...we should talk!
