While I love interacting with readers it has just become too difficult to sort spam from legitimate subscribers so I would invite you to head on over to FB where I will gladly spend some time.

About Me

As I began my design career I was fortunate  to have some very experienced mentors in the printing and publishing business which opened many avenues for job opportunities, including independent publications. As a staff member I was able to participate in the publication of many newspapers, ads, books, magazines, and tabloids which quickly honed my print publication skills. 

In 2003, after completing my education in graphic design followed by additional logo design and branding courses, I began a partnership graphic design business in Italy with my husband, Mary & Ferrari Graphic Design. My husband also had a previous print career in the book publishing industry after design school in Milan. As a full service design agency this opened many areas to us to utilize our creative skills such as packaging, ad design, interior displays, signage, way finding, web design, extensive web development etc. This allowed us a deep dive into business and commercial art. In addition to maintaining a full client roster which continues to expand, we constantly update our skills to enable us to better serve our clients.

I eventually specialized in branding and identity which included brand strategy. I have worked with many businesses to increase their market presence and value with intensive brand management skills. Experienced designers are not just hired hands with graphic skill sets. I work hard to achieve the most effective business outcome for my clients.

After a long career of helping others achieve their business goals and having a family, I have returned to my design foundations, and have begun expanding our business with the creation of Espresso Press Media©. Espresso Press Media© includes specialty consumer graphic design products and creative assets for the increasingly expanding self publishing market operating as a small businesses. Espresso Press Design includes two shops currently selling my own line of digital products for paper crafters as well as custom and curated digital assets for use by other designers.

In addition to nationally recognized logo design, I am also an award winning watercolor artist. For fun I take photos and sell them on sites like Adobe. I’m also an avid paper crafter which allows for a lot of creative relaxation and expression.
