Getting Ahead with Winning Designs
What do you love about your job?
I love having the insight and talent to turn plain text into amazing art and graphic design pieces.
Helping clients build their brand through brainstorming with them and experiencing their gratitude when their logo, flyer, newsletter or art is done, gives me great joy. As a Caribbean-born woman, I embrace texture and color influenced by nature, and I try to incorporate the essence of who I am into all of my work.
What or who inspired you to start your own business?
My paternal grandmother once told me that I should start my own business. At the time I was 17, and so I worked full-time in advertising to gain experience. Several awards and degrees later, I felt ready to do my own thing.
Describe your most memorable project.
My most memorable project was actually a pro-bono assignment that I did for the Catholic
school that my daughters attended in New Rochelle, New York. It was a Halloween flyer
that I designed for them. It was memorable because of the pride that my daughters had that their mom did it and the gratitude that the staff felt.
