Joan has been creating, drawing, painting and designing since she could maneuver a crayon...and later a mouse. Visual compositions and color combinations just come naturally. She began designing for the retirement industry at Benefacts, a division of Aon Consulting. There she had the opportunity to create personalized benefit communications for Fortune 500 clients such as Vanguard, Fannie Mae, Raytheon, and The Coca-Cola Company. Her award-winning Total Compensation logo for Coca-Cola was printed along with an award-winning identity package she developed for a local non-profit in American Corporate Identity 99.
After four years within the personalized communications field, she accepted the position of Creative Director at the Argus Group (now Broadridge). At Argus, Joan was responsible for all internal and external marketing campaigns, managing all design projects, working with both internal consultants and external design departments within major clients such as Mass Mutual, BB&T, CitiNational and ADP.
In early 2005, Joan opened an art gallery in New Orleans that featured her own paintings as well as those of a dozen other artists. However, after the devastating effects of the hurricane, she returned to the East Coast to continue her love affair with graphic design. She spent seven years as Art Director at HDN Studio designing interactive websites, corporate identities for new businesses, and creative print materials for a variety of clients and projects.
Joan graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Towson University as valedictorian. She also has her Master’s of Fine Arts from MassArt. She spends her free time painting and exhibiting her artwork in Baltimore, New Orleans and Washington, DC. Read Less
