I'M

BRANDI WILSON.

 
A VISUAL STORIER
Graphic & Web Designer

Let’ show the world your brilliance using amazing inventive visuals to communicate your swag.

My expertise in Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Lightroom, Spark, Acrobat, Keynote, Google Slides, WordPress, alongside other web platforms will create smart resources for your audience. From print, presentations, web design to amazing graphics for social media campaigns we will excite and bedazzle your stakeholders. 

 

I am considered a triple threat in my field.  Not only do I have technical training as a graphic designer, but I also have 10 years of teaching experience. Which enables me to communicate and disseminate complex information to any audience. I can translate verbal comments, primitive sketches, and abstract concepts into a professional, creative media/graphic presentation.  Finally, I am a visual learner, meaning my learning style is the backbone of this field, I think in pictures. Dare I say it, “a picture speaks 1,000 words.” I may sometimes seem like a daydreamer, or quiet observer, but in my mind, I am organizing, color coding and synthesizing information with images in my mind, faster than I can form the words verbally. This gives me the ability to decipher your thoughts into a form of visual communication to best suite your viewers needs in the most effective manner.
