about me

Hi, I am Mallory Stevens

I am a web & graphic designer

Throughout my career as a graphic and web designer I have acquired many skills and opportunities to evolve my knowledge of the industry and become highly trained in the programs I use. Being involved in promotion, marketing, design, development and client relations has given me a well rounded area of knowledge that has strengthened my abilities and allows me to effortlessly adapt to any type of work environment I encounter. When freelancing my client goals always come first. I try my hardest to find the best solutions in the most efficient way for my projects.

I am very passionate when it comes to my work and design. Most of my inspiration comes from nature and the outdoors. I tend to reflect myself and interests into the work I create to visually show my style. Most of my work showcases small local businesses that involves artwork, animals and outdoor activities. My end goal is to increase the online presence for these businesses so they can be successful. I am proud to be a part of that mission and help these businesses in any way I can.

HOW I THINK ABOUT DESIGN

Although my creative process various per project and per client to me design is about quality, impact and getting the end message across. It should stand out and be something I am proud to be a part of and share with others.

In my opinion the most impactful designs are usually simple but iconic and will always get the message across no matter the audience it's intended for. As I quoted earlier "Good design is obvious, great design is transparent". To me this quote means a good design is obvious. We all know and see when something is designed good. It stands out and we can obviously see why and how it is a good design, especially when compared to a bad design. Yet great design is transparent because it needs no explanation. There is no comparison and it will always work to convey the message intended. Great design is always easy to perceive and be seen.

EXPERIENCE

I have over 5 years experience in the creative design field. I worked as a Designer and Freelance Web Designer during this time. As a Designer I managed, designed and implemented promotional and marketing collateral for internal use and client campaigns. I worked with outside vendors and clients to achieve project goals and deadlines. Projects included social media graphics, banner promotions, newsletters, press releases and custom email campaigns.

I have experience in the reporting and integration of Google Analytics, SEO, editing and writing HTML and CSS, Adobe Creative Suite, responsive web design, cross-browser testing and troubleshooting, print and digital design, video and document content entry and email marketing creation and execution on a variety of platforms.

Working as a Freelance Web & Graphic Designer I learned how to use a variety of CMS systems including WordPress, Wix and Webflow. I created custom sites for clients, edited existing sites or created logos and branding. On top of site design I actively update content and security information and often run promotional campaigns.
