HI, I'M MONIQUE
In one of my first positions, my creative director asserted my title should be “Multimedia Goddess” because of my willingness and ability to tackle so many elements of a project beyond my job description. This flexibility led to my taking on the wide-ranging creative and design requirements of a healthcare IT company from start-up to its acquisition 12 years later. Throughout my career, I have sought diverse freelance opportunities to keep my skills sharp and support my travel obsession. I’ll take on projects big or small, complicated or simple. Everything I work on gets the same attention to detail and every client the same consideration.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Monique is a rare type of designer who can take direction and execute on it perfectly or work with arbitrary requests and come up with something unique and extraordinary. I worked with Monique as her lead through a six-month project for a demanding client. The work was often fast-paced and demanded quick, individual thinking. Monique took the initiative to find ways to improve the process. Her work is always exceptional and on time. She is a team-player in every way, suggesting ideas to her fellow designers, and being willing to present new methods in live presentations. Her attitude is always positive and helpful. She listens and is engaged in conversations. I have recommended her for projects outside of my team, and everything I hear back is exactly as I expected it to be."

I live with my husband and two children in Seattle, Washington, USA. I enjoy hiking with my yellow lab, paddling my kayak, riding my bike, car camping and curling. Yes, curling. That fascinating winter sport where you slide then sweep 44 lb. granite rocks down a sheet of ice. I also spend time drawing landscapes in colored pencil, stitching tapestries, crocheting, reading and watching Sci-Fi. A typical GenX-er, I am all about the music. Top five fave? Pink Floyd, Tool, U2, James Brown and Foo Fighters. I delight in coming up with strong passwords and hanging out with my kids building LEGOS, experiencing VR and building in Minecraft. Most of all? I love to travel!!! Honestly, if you hire me, I will spend all the income on yarn, sushi — then airline tickets to Cairo or New Zealand wine country.
WHAT MORE CAN I TELL YOU?
I HAVE DESIGNED THIS AND THAT FOR...
Putting together this collage of logos brought back so many memories. I’ve had the privilege of pitching in on so many wonderful brands - seeing their logos in one place sparks joy. I’m proud of what I have been able to do for each company, whether it be a small social media tile or a complete rebrand with logo, collateral, website, and presentations. Some I worked for full time, some contract and many freelance. Explore work I have done for select clients. Contact me if I'm a good fit for your company's needs.
