As a corporate graphic designer and creative director with a background in marketing and branding, I specialize in improving marketing effectiveness through better design.

With experience at high-profile public companies – including Adobe, Autodesk, and CNET – as well as fast-growing startups that progressed to top-performing IPOs, I am adept at creating compelling visual communications in fast-paced, deadline-driven environments of all sizes.

I have 9 years of experience as an in-house designer and creative director – both as a sole designer with company-wide responsibility, and as part of a creative team. I now work on a freelance basis providing outsourced design and creative services.

I specialize in:

• Collaborating with clients to determine their creative needs and communication goals, and drawing upon my experience in both design and marketing to create deliverables that are optimized to communicate intended messages and elicit desired responses

• Designing and producing the full spectrum of print and digital marketing assets – from logo and brand identity design, to websites, collateral, presentations, direct mail & email, advertising, landing pages, and event graphics

• Managing websites and optimizing layout and content for usability and SEO

• Designing assets that adhere to established brand guidelines, and developing new brand standards as needed

• Working within established templates, and designing new collateral, presentation, email, and newsletter templates as needed

• Managing creative teams, vendors, projects, and budgets

• Delivering high-quality results on-time and on-brief, with meticulous attention to detail Read Less

"When you hire Andrea and Qui9, you don't just get a designer, you also get someone who cares about messaging and positioning and making sure that your marketing messages actually mean and say what you intended them to say. Andrea is my go-to gal when I need a creative agency. She should be yours, too."

"When you hire Andrea and Qui9, you don't just get a designer, you also get someone who cares about messaging and positioning and making sure that your marketing messages actually mean and say what you intended them to say. Andrea is my go-to gal when I need a creative agency. She should be yours, too."

"I have worked with a lot of designers in my career and Andrea definitely stands out among them. Her deep understanding of marketing and branding, coupled with her fantastic visual sense make her unique among designers. She excels at print, online and presentation design and has made more than one of my mediocre projects really shine."

"I brought Andrea in recently to work on a branding project for a current client. She was able to translate their desires into a design that was light years ahead of what their previous branding agency brought them, and the client couldn't be more thrilled."

"I’ve been involved with trade shows for more than 10 years and have had the privilege of creating some really amazing booths. But, without a doubt, the graphics Andrea created for our new booth are the best I’ve ever seen – I can’t wait for the booth setup so that I can soak in the full-scale image. And my promo vendor said he thought she designed the coolest t-shirts he’s ever made."

"I admire Andrea's level of professionalism and the quality of her work. When we first spoke, she talked about making our small company appear large, well established, and professional. The projects that she's worked on have accomplished that goal in spades."

"Wow, I have to say I’m impressed. Andrea gets it on the first try. The last few people I've worked with on projects like this took at least 5 revisions to get it right, often many more." Read Less
