It’s my earnest endeavor that we work together to create a brand, visual or website that illustrates how you feel about your brand on the inside to the world on the outside.

Branding

The essence of your business is your brand, & it’s best if it’s decided by you & not a marketing agency. The Brand Workshop from Grace Studio walks you through the elements of branding – lets you decide how you want to present yourself, your company.

Photography

More visual design, this time by capturing a nuance, an expression, a live action – something for the viewer to experience. Photographic images go further to show the essence of your brand & the gist of your message. 
We should work together on this – your ideas, my talent.

About Your Designer

 

IMG_6065Grace Studio started in 2001 as a tiny photography venture after the dot.com bust (the first one), wherein I lost my job & fled to Europe. For two weeks. I’d been taking photos since teen years but had set it aside when audio work & other business ventures came calling. It took me a bit to slow down, see beauty again, & it felt a bit like coming home, after being in the high-tech sector. But experiencing both sides of work (art & business) made me crave projects that had that combination: business & the creative.

When I take on a project, I delve into my client’s business to understand what their challenges are & what they need from design to make their business better, their brand stronger.  It’s one of my favorite parts of the work I get to do – getting to know you. A stickler for branding, this thread weaves its way through all my client-facing work: print design, identity, photography, web design.

I still enjoy shooting – vineyards, farms, people & product –  I work it into my projects whenever possible. A visual is worth a thousand first impressions & I’m happy to work with you to get that impression just right. I’m most often found sketching or tapping on a laptop, designing just the right look & feel within that small screen to give the world a true sense of your brand, your business essence.

Off the grid, I enjoy shooting stills for indie films, traveling whenever possible & playing in water in any form: snow, river, lake, ocean.

Street cred: I earned my degree in Telecommunications Management from Marylhurst University & hold certificates in Digital Marketing Strategy and Interactive Media Production from Portland State University.
