Hi! I’m Allan Janzen, proprietor of Monkey Wrench Graphics.
I currently have over 30 years of experience in the graphics industry. I started as an ink-stained printing press operator. Five years later I moved into the prepress department – and barely had time to learn “old-school” prepress methods, before being swept up in the computer-based desktop publishing revolution. I’ve been working in specialized computer-based graphics production and digital imaging ever since.
With ten years working in a print shop, another ten at a full-service advertising agency, and the remaining years to date as a full-time freelancer working on contract from a home office, I have acquired an exceptionally varied skill set. From my primary specialization in high end Photoshop image editing and compositing, to commercial photography, HD video production, editing and motion graphics, panoramic imaging/virtual tour production, web graphics, professional scanning services, outdoor and trade show/display media — I can handle just about any sort of graphics project imaginable!
Whatever your digital graphics production needs, Monkey Wrench Graphics is ready to help!
Ensuring that your images look their best – is what I do best!
I started working with Photoshop in version 2.0, in 1991. That was before there was layers! The Photoshop application has undergone massive changes since then, and Adobe has built an extensive suite of professional graphics applications around it. Along the way I have achieved Adobe Certified Expert status in Photoshop, as well as Brainbench “Master” certification – in the latter I scored above the 97th percentile among over 35,000 tested worldwide. Let’s just say that when it comes to Photoshop, I know my stuff!
