I enjoy working with clients who recognize the value of design as an effective marketing component to the success of their business.
Welcome! My name is Sharon and I’m passionate about helping businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes to build brand awareness, attract customers, and generate sales through creative design solutions. I take the time to understand the specific organizational goals of your business, your product, and your vision. A well-crafted design concept implemented consistently across a variety of media platforms, builds a strong brand. I can help develop a strategy that will successfully communicate your brand message.
I've had the privilege to work with many brands over the past decade and I know what it takes to deliver unique and eye-catching designs. I have formed long term partnerships with my clients and almost 90% of my current business comes from word of mouth referrals.
As Creative Director, I often collaborate with talented creatives such as writers, editors, photographers, and web developers. This allows me to cover all project needs and provide you with the same capabilities as a larger agency, for a fraction of the cost.
From 2008 until 2013, I worked as the Creative Director for Routes Magazine, a bi-monthly art/lifestyle magazine for the foothills region. Throughout my years with Routes, I had the opportunity to develop and hone my skills in many different areas of media design. I enjoyed collaborating and planning with the talented media production team to faithfully meet all our project deadlines. After the 2013 flood, Routes Magazine sadly stopped production but I still continue to work on custom publications projects with Routes Media.
In 2014, I started a position as a Media/Marketing Manager at AgeCare Corporate while maintaining my freelance design business. With the continued grown of my design business, in 2017 I made the decision to shift from part-time to a full-time business owner and started Brand Brighter.
I also love getting involved in my community!
Volunteering my time and skills to many local community non-profit organizations like Foothill Folk Club, Twilight Festival and South Country Fair.
