Megan Fretty

Freelance Graphic Designer

Muskegon, MI, USA
I have over 10 years of experience with graphic design and illustration. Currently, I work as a freelance designer, where I provide various creative services, including but not limited to, print, web, and social media graphics and illustration. Over the years, I have gathered a vast array of creative experience: from marketing, web and print design, illustration, product development, 3D imaging, and spoken audio.

Previously, I worked as a Product Designer and Marketing Support Specialist at Whitehall Products. I worked in a team of three, developing new product ideas, and guiding the process from conception to production. I provided any and all graphics services, including but not limited to website graphics, product catalogs, sell sheets, pamphlets, trade show banners, merchandise, and e-marketing layouts.

The experience I've gathered in various forms of design and marketing, flexibility, and can-do personality make me a valuable asset to any work environment.

I spend my free time cooking, writing, drawing, volunteering, and cuddling my dogs. I am a huge Harry Potter fan, which shows through my involvement with MuggleNet, The Protego Foundation, and my podcast, Care of Magical Shippers.
