Kindness is Contagious

Publicity Poster

Kindness is Contagious

Nicole needed a publicity poster and Facebook ad for her upcoming speaking engagements. After talking about color and style, I set out to create graphics, copy, and images that fit her personal style; something that would set her apart as professional, knowledgeable, kind, and fun.

“I am so grateful to have been able to work with Andrea from Giraffic Media. She is absolutely gifted– not only in creating a beautiful design, but also in being able to see the vision that was in my head and then making it a reality. Andrea created posters, mailers and social media graphics for my business that were 100% perfect the first time! I will definitely be a repeat customer!” –Nicole J Phillips, Ohio

It's All Malarkey

Website + Product Packaging

It’s all Malarkey

When Brandi approached me about making a website for her, she had been working with another designer who had dropped the ball. Brandi needed something quickly, as she had an upcoming art show and wanted a website for people to find out more! Brandi had some general ideas about what she wanted in a website, but we had a lot of work to do in planning. Being an artist, she had specific ideas about what the site should be; the WordPress theme I found fit most of these ideas, but needed some customization to make them work for Brandi. Now she has a professional, functional, and beautiful website to showcase her considerable talent and instructions on how to maintain it herself. (Naturally, I’m always available for support and troubleshooting!)

About a year later, Brandi came to me again with another exciting project – she was branching out into a new art form and needed some product packaging. Brandi wanted cards 2 in. x 3.5 in. to attach a small bag containing her product. She asked for varying styles, and I created a set of matching graphics and cards using her artwork as inspiration. These products are now being sold in a local art Gallery.

“Andrea was just lovely to work with. Her communications skills are excellent, and I always felt I knew exactly what was happening at all times. Andrea is both calm and efficient and was able to help take a lot of random ideas, define my priorities, and turn them into a beautiful website.” –Brandi Malarkey

Turtle Creek Quilting
 

Business Startup + Branding

Turtle Creek Quilting

I love working with business startups! Becca needed to establish an identity for her new business. She wanted a logo that was warm and inviting, but contemporary and clean. We settled on an abstract turtle in subdued blues and greens. The business card came next; clean and minimal but informative and functional. Finally, a website to help market her services. I created a site for her that was highly customized with unique graphics and colors. She required two downloadable and printable PDF forms and extensive photo editing. In the end, Becca ended up with a beautiful, clean website from which her target market can learn about her business, her life, and her services.

Social Media + Print Layout

Empowered Intuition

Micara put out a call needing help with her Facebook cover photo, and I was happy to help. Once we got it working correctly, she asked me to create some graphics for her section of the program for her upcoming speaking engagement. Using her color palette and beautiful photos, I took inspiration from other graphics she was using on Instagram and Facebook, and created the pages she needed.

This group of realtors needed an updated look to their educational booklet, and asked me to find photos and create graphics for an engaging, elegant, and informative layout.

Swendsen Family Reuntion
 

Logo / Branding / Website / Collateral

Swendsen Family Reunion

The Swendsens meet every 3 years for a family reunion, and in 2018 they decided they should have a logo and new website. For this fun project, I created an original logo, website, Facebook graphics, temporary tattoos, and custom pencils.

Logo + Branding + Tshirt Design

Average at Best

World of Warcraft guild Average at Best was looking for corporate sponsors and needed a logo to grab their attention. After multiple versions and color options, they settled on this energetic logo, complete with a gaming headset and headphone jack. Their guild is now being considered for sponsorship by a popular tech company that produces high quality computer gaming accessories. The shirts and matching stickers could also be seen at Blizzcon 2019 in Anaheim, CA.

Spotlight on Youth
 

Logo + Branding + Marketing + Video + Photography

Spotlight on Youth

Justin came to me for help kicking off his new summer youth theatre program. He needed a logo, newspaper ads, social media marketing, and headshots done. We customized a logo for his group with a spotlight image and pool of light. We then created Facebook graphics and a social media identity. Show posters and newspaper ads came next, along with headshots of the actors and staff, and promotional videos.

Testimonials

  • Andrea is a rare find. She’s talented, responsive and eager to collaborate to get the best possible finished product. On top of that, she’s just a great person. I have been so, so happy to have worked on my website with her and to watch my ideas come to life in her expert hands.

    Dayna Del Val, Blogger – ExtaordinaryExtraordinary.com
  • Andrea was a joy to work with. My only experience with marketing materials was creating my own from a template, so I was intimidated to work with a designer. She could not have been nicer and more encouraging! She went above and beyond my expectations, including working with the printer to make sure the colors were perfect. Her work is impeccable and I will happily recommend her to anyone.

    Cynthia McGuire Thiel, CMT Sews
  • “Working with Andrea was a breeze from start to finish. I needed some last minute design projects completed and she swooped in to save the day! I’ll definitely be working with her again in the very near future!”

About

A lot of “About Me” pages share how they wanted to be a ___ since they were young. That’s not exactly my story. I had no idea that I wanted to be a graphic designer for the longest time, until I was an adult and looked back at all the school projects I did with my kids, and calendars, chore charts, and Christmas letters I was creating for my family. I didn’t dream of this career my entire life or write about it in my elementary “career journal.”

My creative journey started with music when I was young, but the time I spent exploring all the creative outlets I could think of eventually pointed me to my dream job. I learned about being true to myself as an artist. I learned how to run a business on a small scale, and I learned that I loved using my natural gifts to bring the beauty and utility of great design into other’s lives.

I earned a degree in Graphic Design from Minnesota State Community and Technical College in 2016. Now, I’m proud to say that graphic design is my full-time work. I use my business and marketing talents to create meaningful digital art for my clients. At least once a week I tell my husband, “I love graphic design! I can’t believe I get to do this full time.” It’s a rewarding job that I’m so incredibly thankful for! And if that wasn’t awesome enough, I get to do this full time from home while I take care of my family. So much of my story has led me to where I am today, and I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know who I am beyond just graphic design. I can’t wait to meet you!

I promise not to sing…probably.
