Since 2009, Lucas Beck has been working as an independent graphic designer. Operating as a one-man shop means that maintaining current technology is an absolute necessity. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find capital to purchase such technology- computer and programs- when you're on your own.

Recently, Lucas Beck's Power Mac G5 passed into the electronic afterlife. After a difficult struggle to repair the old computer's ailments, Lucas had to call it: time of death, 10:07 pm, July 8th. It was a tough loss for this designer, especially when his work is dependent on the artistry that emerges from the computer's capabilities.

Without his main digital hub, Lucas Beck- graphic designer and mourning Mac user- can no longer seek and execute work that supports his family and invigorates him professionally. Additionally, reduced financial circumstances mean the quest to save for a computer make it a frustratingly long time until new technology can be purchased.

With your generous help, Lucas will be able to purchase a new workstation and again create professional, skillful and strategic design for his clients so they can retain a competitive edge in their fields of industry.

Simply put: no computer, no work as a graphic designer. He can sketch all he likes and paint good intentions all over the office's walls, but without a new computer, he's an artist with no canvas.

Lucas Beck loves to design. In his capable hands, ideas and words merge to create meaningful and impactful imagery. So, whatever the word you need to picture- love, generosity, friendship, family, professionalism, grace or Apple (because their products rule Luke's industry) please consider making a donation to support this local artist.

And while it's true that when we give to others, we're actually gifting ourselves, Lucas does want to give something to everyone who helps him on his way- an original logo, cool party or wedding invitations, the beginning to a web site or cool letterhead for all your correspondence.

He knows this asks a lot. He knows everyone is strapped. And he is grateful that he has friends and family that know his story, his talent and what is needed for him to continue as a designer.

Lucas Beck needs your help.
