After graduating from George Mason University with a degree in Graphic Design in 2004, I began working as part of a small in-house creative department at BET Networks. Working for a television network was an invaluable experience because projects were incredibly varied, high-profile, fast-paced, and intense. In 2015, I began my own design business and have worked on a wide variety of projects for a range of organizations. My areas of expertise include:
Print design has always been one of my favorite areas of design. Determining the best format, selecting the right paper and specialty treatments, and creating the overall design takes a great deal of skill, not only to deliver the message but to do so in an appropriate way and within a designated budget and time frame. Print design includes: books, branded materials, business cards, logos, marketing materials, posters, press kits, printed ads, etc.
Event design is something I have a great deal of experience with, for both corporate and red-carpet style events. Event design includes: invitations, tickets, exterior and interior signage, booth graphics, directional signage, pull up/step and repeat banners, staff t-shirts, program books, posters, informational guides/packets, branded maps, schedules, thank you cards, branded concession items (napkins, cups, coffee sleeves, etc.), bags, podium signage, presentation documents, etc.
Digital design is anything non-printed. One of my favorite non-printed materials is an interactive PDF. These documents are great vehicles for client guides, packets, and forms. Utilizing an interactive PDF means your client will be able to fill out, save, and return forms to you using a clean and simple process. Digital Design includes: interactive PDFs, lead-generating digital downloads, fill-in-able forms, ebooks, downloadable guides/packets, web and social media banners, etc.
I feel fortunate to combine my passion and talents in my work, and I am always looking for new opportunities to partner with businesses that care about good design. If that's you, you should say hello!
