I grew up outside Detroit in a family of writers, advertising copywriters, and interior designers. I always planned to be a writer but a college workshop in QuarkXPress—and a first job where they put me to work resizing newspaper ads—took me in an even better direction.
My experience covers developing and executing integrated design projects for print, environmental and digital communications. You name it, I've done it …
- Ads (Print and Digital)
- Annual Reports
- Collateral (Print and Digital)
- Corporate Identity
- Direct Marketing (Cross-Channel)
- Content Development
- Event Marketing
- Logo Development
- Newsletters (Print and Digital)
- Presentation Decks
- Social Media Management
- Tradeshow Identity
… and more—from initial concepts through production.
I have found a niche working directly with a variety of businesses and start-ups—providing all things marketing-related. I am the “go-to” freelance designer for a number of marketing agencies in Chicago and beyond, whose clients include the American Dental Association, BP, ComEd, West Georgia Health, Western Union, and YMCA of the USA. l also design and produce event collateral, wedding suites, stationery and holiday greetings for individual, non-profit, and corporate clients.
When not working, I can probably be found watching HGTV, reading People Magazine, or at Target.
