A Little Bit About GTP Designs

GTP Designs is the freelance graphic design portfolio of George Probst (that’s me). Located in Blacksburg, Virginia, GTP Designs serves clients both locally and throughout the U.S.

Unique clients deserve unique, user-centered design solutions

I strongly believe that every client has something unique to offer. Consequently, my goal is to create designs that reflect the individual qualities of every client that I work with. I work directly with clients to not only achieve designs that are representative of the clients themselves but will also be well-received by the intended audiences.

I believe in user-center design principles and an emphasis on usability for the end-user. My goal is to reinforce the idea that even the most aesthetically-pleasing and technologically sound designs will ultimately fail if they are not designed around the needs of the target audience.

Professional experience and educational background

With over six years of experience as a freelancer, my work has included the design of websites, logos, and marketing documents, including brochures, business cards, and letterhead. Additionally, I have provided artwork for t-shirt designs, posters, and other promotional items. I have over 12 years of professional experience with digital image editing, as well.

I earned my B.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE) and my M.S. in the Human Factors Engineering option of ISE (both from Virginia Tech).
