Stephanie graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design and a Minor in Art History from Western Michigan University. Determined to work amongst the elite and challenge herself, Stephanie moved to New York City two weeks after graduation without any immediate job prospects. Within a month, Stephanie landed a freelance position with Catch 24 Advertising & Design, and has since gained experience working with studios such as Ludlow 6, Firefly Branding, and as a freelance image retoucher for the innovative product design company, 

Currently, Stephanie is a Senior Graphic Designer with Graham Hanson Design, where she leads a team of designers and oversees concept development, production, fabrication and on-site implementation of designs. She has developed print design and environmental graphics for companies such as Google (New York City, Washington D.C., Cambridge MA, Ann Arbor MI, Pittsburgh PA and Austin TX offices), Carnegie Hall, Macklowe Properties, The Truth Initiative (Washington D.C. office), Vornado Realty Trust (New York City and Crystal City VA), and Rockefeller Group.

Inspired by the energy and passion within New York City, Stephanie enjoys a range of creative exercises and activities in her spare time. For the past four years Stephanie has volunteered her services to provide print and digital collateral for NECSS, a conference held annually at FIT that promotes science education and hosts educators such as Bill Nye. Stephanie's passion for art and history led to a nine month experience in 2012 as a sales associate at the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art, and she continues to engage in museum activities and programs every week--- most recently touring the creative departments at the American Museum of Natural History. Utilizing a comprehensive knowledge of art history, acute attention to detail, and an eye for aesthetics, Stephanie is capable of tackling any design challenge and creating fresh, exciting work that inspires, educates, and engages.
