Annual Report // Art Direction & Design

Created while serving as full-time Marketing Specialist & Graphic Designer for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
I worked closely with the Marketing & Public Relations Manager to create this 26-page annual report. While she was in charge of copywriting, I created the aesthetic concept and designed the report while reporting to the Director of Marketing who gave final direction and approval.

Taste of the Pro Football Hall of Fame // Invitation Design

Created while serving as full-time Marketing Specialist & Graphic Designer for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
The challenge with this project is to set each year’s event apart from the year prior. The copy is similar year after year, so the events and marketing teams rely on fresh designs each year to sell the event.

NOTA // Logo Design

The Northeast Ohio Translators Association hired me to create a new logo for their organization after being referred to me by VCK Translation.

BoldVision // Logo Design & Page Layout

Joy Bufalini is a career coach for female entrepreneurs. She hired me to help rebrand her business after a name change. The new logo debuted in an article featuring her as a successful woman in business in both O - The Oprah Magazine and Entrepreneur Magazine. I was honored to design the page layout for that article.

BoldVision; JoyBufalini.com // Web Design

Although web design isn’t my area of expertise, the experience of creating this new Wordpress site helped me grow as a designer. I was able to help guide some of the choices made on how to present information in a way that truly embraces the brand. Finding the balance between my preference for minimal copy and white space and the client’s desire to tell a full story was a challenge, but we landed in a place she was thrilled with. I count that as a win!
