Service Description

My name is Dawn Donner. I am a marketing/communications design professional with over 15 years. From concept to completion, my creative design experience ranges from logo and corporate branding/identity; books; brochures; newsletters; custom collateral; packaging; large scale displays and banners; advertising and direct mail for print and Web.

I work in a Mac environment and am using CreativeSuite5 for all design, layout and production. I take the files from concept to completion and work with a variety of printers to make sure the final product is exactly what the client asked for and expects. I have also created web materials/small sites in Photoshop and Dreamweaver for personal use and local clients. I continue learning through professional affiliations and locally provided classes.
