Stephanie Wilkins

New York, NY, USA
Stephanie graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design and a Minor in Art History from Western Michigan University. Determined to work with the best and challenge herself, she moved to New York City two weeks after graduation without any immediate job prospects. Within a month, Stephanie landed a freelance gig with Catch 24 Advertising & Design, and has since held jobs as a graphic designer with Ludlow 6, as a freelance image retoucher for Quirky.com, and also worked as a sales associate for nine months at the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art. Stephanie was a Graphic Designer with the global branding specialist Firefly Branding, where she oversaw the design team as they tackled visual systems, packaging, environmental graphics and re-branding for international clients.

Currently, Stephanie is a Mid-level Graphic Designer with Graham Hanson Design, where she specializes in Environmental Graphics and Print Design.

Inspired by the energy and passion within New York City, Stephanie also enjoys designing and drawing in her spare time, focusing on print design and digital painting. Using her vast knowledge of art history, acute attention to detail, and an eye for aesthetics, Stephanie is capable of tackling any design challenge and creating fresh, exciting work.
