a glimpse inside...

I thought this would be the perfect time to give you a glimpse inside Marigold Design Studio, especially since I'm looking for a design assistant. This is where it all happens—good and bad ideas, sketches, marketing, designing, finalizing artwork, painting, tweeting, blogging, client meetings, etc., etc., etc.

The studio is based out of my home in Mantua, Ohio. It is a creative oasis, separate from the main part of the home where clients, vendors, family, friends and my cats love to visit. Filled with sunlight coming in from the skylights and surrounded by inspirational objects such as art, design books and color swatches, it is where creativity begins.

These past few months have been so busy with far too many late nights so I finally decided it was time to hire a part-time design assistant in here. I am looking for someone who shares my passion with design and color, who thinks "outside the box" and isn't afraid to take chances, is very detail-oriented, familiar with all the programs in Adobe CS and loves cats. Yes, cats, because this is a favorite hangout for Gracie and Max!

Life at Marigold is never boring! You will be assisting me with projects such as redesigning websites, developing trade show graphics and signage, packaging designs, corporate identity, collateral materials, annual reports, catalogs, vehicle wraps, photo shoots [styling and art direction], social media, color marketing and Marigold's own marketing materials and website. If you would like to apply for the position, please email me your resume and a few samples of your work in a pdf format. Keep in mind that this is a part-time position, 20 hours a week with flexible hours. I will consider a senior-level college student with a stellar portfolio!

Abstract paintings in various orange hues greet you as you enter the studio.
It's all about color and design in here.
