I’m passionate about building brands and I love helping businesses and organizations build awareness, attract customers, and generate sales through creative brand design solutions. I take the time to understand the specific organizational goals of your business, your product, and your vision.
I enjoy managing projects and designing, planning and implementing creative marketing campaigns. I have excellent communication skills and work well in a team setting and with other people. I'm always open to the viewpoints of others and welcome critical feedback on my work. I always enjoy challenging myself, setting new goals and constantly updating and learning new skills via self-teaching and through numerous design workshops.
I've had the privilege to work with many brands over the past decade and I know what it takes to deliver unique and eye-catching designs. I have formed long term partnerships with my clients and almost 90% of my current business comes from word of mouth referrals.
As Creative Director, I often collaborate with talented creatives such as writers, editors, photographers, and web developers. This allows me to cover all project needs and provide you with the same capabilities as a larger agency, for a fraction of the cost.
Sonny Design Media (SDM Studio) was established back in 2013 and only recently rebranded to BrandBrighter. The reason for the change is due to growth, we needed to incorporate the business and wanted to make sure that we had a name that best describes our business goals and my passion to help build brands through creative design solutions.
We work with clients who recognize the value of design as an effective marketing and branding component to the success of their company. If this sounds like you, or your organization... LETS CONNECT AND PLAN YOUR NEXT PROJECT.
From 2008 until 2013, I worked as the Creative Director for Routes Magazine, a bi-monthly art/lifestyle magazine for the foothills region. Throughout my years with Routes, I had the opportunity to develop and hone my skills in many different areas of media design. I enjoyed collaborating and planning with the talented media production team to faithfully meet all our project deadlines. After the 2013 flood, Routes Magazine sadly stopped production but I still continue to work on custom publications projects with Routes Media.
In 2013, I started a position as a Media/Marketing Manager at AgeCare Corporate while maintaining my freelance design business. With the continued grown of my design business, in 2016 I made the decision to shift from part-time to a full-time freelance designer/business owner.
I also love getting involved in my community! Volunteering my time and skills to many local community non-profit organizations like Foothill Folk Club, Twilight Festival and South Country Fair.
