Deanna Rosa

My first love is writing, so naturally, I’m a sucker for a good story. And for me, design feels a lot like writing a story — discovering all the scattered pieces and then translating them into a language that makes sense. If your brand’s got a story to tell, I’m your girl. When I’m not creating, you can find me with my nose in a good memoir or volunteering at the nonprofit I started with my friends.

Hugh Haggerty 

15 years doing production work in the magazine, textbook, and science publishing fields taught me a lot, but not enough to break into the design departments. After ten years in the field away from computers, I decided to pursue a design certificate from Shillington. I like clever design, but also design that doesn’t call too much attention to itself and lets the client’s message come through. My main influences are modern art deco and Swiss minimalism. My other interests include music (part-time DJ and bassist), amateur photography, science fiction, animal rights, and climate change activism.

I’ve found in graphic design a way to channel my desire to solve problems with creativity, skill, and grit.

Robin Grau

As far back as I can remember I've had an interest in creative work. As a kid I used to draw, paint, and play music, and when I moved to the United States I was started getting into the digital platform working with sound and video. Eventually I found myself in the film industry as a freelancer, and along the way discovered graphic design. I feel like graphic design is the perfect way for me to combine the skills I have learned over the years with my passion for drawing and being creative.

Ron Kimberling

Departing a rodeo town for Los Angeles, my design journey started in architecture and fashion. Next, the Big Apple to work with noted package designer Fred Mittleman. Learning from one of Madison Avenue's original madmen, I contributed to several award-winning designs—all the while learning to love the font Futura. In 1996, I joined one of NYC's earliest web firms. There we waited impatiently for the miracle of broadband while creating convergent media experiences for the entertainment industries. Armed with a diversity of expertise, I'm well-suited for today's integrated design solutions. I still love Futura. I like drawing with a pencil.
