VISUAL COMMUNICATION

EXPERIENCE IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU DON'T GET WHAT YOU WANT! At 2Sense Design Studio, I provide visual communications and digital design services. Combining two senses of communication — yours and mine. There's no reason for us to not be able to create a great campaign, marketing collateral or brilliant website together. I'm here to translate your vision.

Your Sense + My Sense.
MAKES PERFECT SENSE!
WELL...
I've served the corporate, nonprofit and start-up business communities for 18+ years with graphic design. A native to Memphis, TN, I've been inspired by the various cultural experiences of the city. My passion for fine art and history have fine-tuned my aesthetic sensitivity to great design. As a Visual Communications Specialist, I’ve sought leadership and supporting roles in the design and development of corporate collateral and support materials for internal and external marketing communications.
 
My EXPERIENCE

Includes the development of immersive designs for local and national brands, providing art direction, visually relaying business objectives, and coordinating trade exhibitions. I have collaborated with creative teams to refine concepts; managed photo shoots, video and production schedules, created strategic plans, and solved problems for the effective presentation to the intended audiences. It's a common practice that I keep abreast of design trends and continue my education to enhance my skill set.
