Your Vision, Our Creativity

Sheild for Design By Dutchess

I'm a seasoned graphic designer with a flair for bringing ideas to life. From Award Winning Super Bowl commercials to striking logos, my designs have made an impact across various platforms. With a passion for creating stunning visuals, I specialize in Wix websites, logos, printed materials, and packaging design.

My Journey

Over the years, I've collaborated with diverse clients, crafting unique designs that speak volumes. My journey includes a decade in Corporate at Pond Lehocky. At Philadelphia's D4 Creative, I worked with high-profile clients like Comcast. In 2020, I embraced full-time freelancing, allowing me to engage in more creative projects and assist entrepreneurs across America. Each project, whether for a small startup or a big-name brand, is a canvas for innovation, benefitting from my rich mix of corporate and entrepreneurial experience.
