After living in Seattle for over 25 years, I’ve moved to Portland.
While in Seattle, I worked with some great organizations including the Pacific Science Center, the Seattle Art Museum, YMCA, American Diabetes Association, several local design and marketing firms, and the University of Washington’s Haring Center. I’ve enjoyed working for all of these organizations and found my projects to be interesting, creative and meaningful. My co-workers were dedicated and talented people — many who have become lifelong friends.
Seattle has some great professional organizations that I was fortunate to be part of. One of the first ones I joined when I first moved to Seattle was the Society of Professional Graphic Artists (SPGA), which later merged with the Graphic Artists Guild. Later, I joined the AIGA, IxDA Seattle, UW’s Accessible Web Group, the UW WordPress User’s Group and the Seattle WordPress Meetup Group. Each of these organizations and their members were very helpful, informative and encouraging as I further developed my professional graphic design, web design and development skills.
My husband and I have been visiting Portland over the last few years and finally decided to move here. Every day we explore Portland more and are loving our new, “weird”, friendly city.
I will continue to work with some of my existing freelance clients and to work remotely for UW’s Haring Center. I am looking forward to learning more about Portland’s Graphic and Web Design communities.Tags:Accessible Web, Graphic Design, Portland, Seattle, Web Design, Web Development, WordPress
