Creating strong, healthy brands is what I do. My experience comes from creatively leading agencies and some of the biggest brands around. Coca-Cola, MetLife, Georgia Pacific, Coty, Hitachi, The Home Depot and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
I got my papers from The Portfolio Center. I am known as an Creative Director, Graphic Designer with a strong emphasis on airtight strategy. I managed to lead numerous creative departments, I work well with others and I raised two kids to adulthood. I was in Atlanta agencies for most of my career, co-created BrightHouse which exposed me to global branding, the beauty industry, museum branding, sports presence marketing and many unique experiential creative projects.
Always one for a challenge. I got an offer to move back home to Charleston, SC to rethink all creative and brands at Rawle Murdy, successfully rebranding every client in the roster-Piggly Wiggly, Seabrook Island, Wild Dunes, American College of the Building Arts, The Post & Courier among others.
Mission accomplished, I chose to continue my organic branding mission and created The Branding Garden. Clients and projects have included The Gibbes Museum, MedCare, The Tampa Museum of Art, The Orange County Museum of Art, GDC Home - Advertising giant Charlotte Beers trusted me to design the cover for her book, ‘I’d Rather be in Charge’ as well as exciting new projects.
