As a Senior Graphic Designer, I work as part of the creative team at our in-house agency, Affinity Advertising. Designing, creating, testing and finding solutions to produce the best outcome for each project is always challenging. But, my favorite part of the process is when a project comes to life, you see the reaction it has and you get to watch it grow.
At Affinity, there’s a variety of work the creative team completes. Advertising, printed materials, direct mail and office collateral are some of the items we produce for the company. It’s also the creative teams’ job to find ways to help the company find ways to introduce what we can do to help clients be successful in their retirement. We listen closely, then find ways to get specific ideas, thoughts or suggestions into a visual format.
I have been in Graphic Design my entire career with an emphasis on visual communications. The field is ever changing, growing and expanding. I stay interested in marketing, branding and continual education of new skills.
Away from work I love spending time with Rick, my husband of 38 years, our adult children and our grandchildren. The laughter they bring into our home keeps my life a happy one. I enjoy being creative in my home studio (it’s my little corner of the world), painting, drawing, scrapbooking and more.
