9 Years of Pure Passion
I started making logos at 9 years old for fun. I started freelancing when I was a sophomore in high school, and have been passionate about what I do ever since.
B.A. Fine Arts Graphic Design From Art Center College of Design
I graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design with a BA in Graphic Design. Art Center is ranked as one of the top design schools in the world.
Devoted Sports Fan
I grew up in and around sports. I specialize and have a passion for sports design. I have worked with many athletes and various professional sports teams.
With a BA in Graphic Design from The Art Center in Pasadena, California, Mary has realized a passion she’s had from a very young age. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Mary fell in love with design. Growing up designing logos, hand drawing type as a hobby and summer classes at Shemer Art Center allowed her to become a freelance designer by age 16.
With an equal passion for sports, not only as a spectator but also participant, Mary has been fortunate to intern in the design departments for the Arizona Rattlers and LA KISS. Fully understanding branding has made it a natural fit for her to work with many individual athletes in various sports as well.
Beyond sports, Mary has a variety of interests like travel, painting, animal welfare, music, languages and interior design, She approaches each new design challenge with the particular lens it requires. Mary understands that designing and branding isn’t formulaic and mechanical, its emotional, visual and textural. Finding the right angle, tone and voice is the key to making a design not only stand out and memorable, but unforgettable.
