For the last two years, I have worked as a graphic designer here at Quintain, creating both digital and print graphics for our clients. Much of my work focuses on designing content for the web, including eBooks, whitepapers, case studies and infographics. Not one to be content wearing a single hat, my skills also extend into photography, web design, and audio and video editing.
I graduated top of my class — summa cum laude — with a B.A. in visual arts and a concentration in graphic design from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. I am an alumna of the UMBC Honors College academic community, which allowed me to break through my little art bubble and to study less-relevant, but equally-intriguing, subjects while at school, such as chivalry in medieval literature.
Having previously worked as a print production designer at the UMBC Design and Print Center, I have a firm comprehension of how to create digital artwork that translates well into tangible, printed products. I understand that digital and print design are two vastly different, yet connected, worlds and know how important it is to cater a design to the realm in which it lives.
On my own time, I create fun designs for my personal website and blog. I also like to experiment with traditional art media, like papercraft and inking. When I’m not busy designing, I love to spend my time baking, solving jigsaw puzzles, kayaking and swimming, and getting lost in a good book or video game. I also appreciate the power of a good nap.
Always working to learn and expand my skills, I currently hold all five HubSpot certifications.
