ABOUT

ME

I am a freelance graphic designer, specializing in the fields of corporate identity (logo) design, web design, print design and branding. I started my own business, fostermedia studios, in 2009 after a successful run with one of the largest PR firms in the NW. And then worked at one of the largest direct mail agency's in the country. I developed many skills by overseeing 20 account managers and numerous accounts. My creative campaigns and print materials in social media marketing, the trades, direct mail, and government affairs arenas have traveled throughout the United States and been very successful. Fostermedia studios continues this success today by continuing to spread messaging through direct mailers, web sites, brochures and logos.
