Born to be a print designer.
My aunt tells me that when I was a toddler, I would go to bed with paper scraps on which I had drawn or written things. If my parents took my artwork away while I was napping, they were expected to return it to its place before I awoke. As a middle school kid and teen, I assembled booklets and designed advertisements for school events, and made books as gifts.
Print graphic design was an obvious career choice. After spending two years as a graphic design intern with a non-profit publisher, I formally studied Graphic Communications. I then worked for five years with a commercial book printer in design, marketing and prepress. When my husband's job led us both to Germany, freelancing with English-speaking clients from around the world was the most natural option.
I am thankful I get to tell stories for my clients, using methods I've loved since my childhood. And paper scraps? They're still on the floor next to my bed, and I still expect them to be there when I wake up.
A truly global business.
From my home in Germany, I've worked with clients from and printers in the following countries:
- New Zealand
I am always happy to add more countries to the list!
