When a project calls for advanced graphic design, copywriting, or front-end web development, these are the storytellers I turn to in order to complete the picture.
I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with these women over the years, and each one is so good at what they do, I know that I can trust them to make the project come to life. They know me, they know how I work, and boy, do they know their stuff.
If we need their skillset for your project, they are standing by.
Graphic Design, Illustration, Video Editing
Tina DiCicco is a designer, illustrator, and storyteller. Together we’ve created 150-page catalogs, packaging for retail products, outdoor signage in Sonoma County, 17-foot trade show displays, print ads, and so much more. You name it — we’ve made it. And we laughed the whole time, which is an essential component for success.
A graduate in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design, Tina has worked as a professional artist for more than 17 years. She has designed everything from packaging and catalogs to logos and displays for active-lifestyle companies such as Nui, CamelBak Hydration Systems, Buff Multifunctional Headwear, The Yellow Rose Foundation for Type 1 Diabetes, and even the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA. Tina’s designs are literally out of this world (35 million miles away) on Mars. She even signed the Atlas V rocket, enhanced by her logo, before its liftoff.
When she’s not going into orbit for her clients or handling her responsibilities as a full-time mom, Tina builds lopsided homemade fountains, creates whimsical garden sculptures, and escapes to Nui Island, her favorite place on Earth. She resides in Sonoma County with her two monster-cats, patient husband, and two brilliant daughters.
Jennifer Strahan Walker
Jennifer Strahan Walker is one of those magic copywriters that can take your jumble of thoughts, raw technical data, and loose direction, and somehow turn it into poetry, or a white paper, or a print ad, or a customer-service script.
A graduate of the University of Louisiana in journalism and Louisiana Tech University with a master’s degree in English, Jennifer has spent the past 20 years as a technical writer and marketing/web copywriter. She has developed content for enterprise IT solutions for Dell EMC and HP Enterprise, semiconductor memory products for Crucial/Micron Technology (where she met me), and consumer computing/printing and corporate programs for HP Inc. She’s also written about biometric security software, pharmacy automation, and the Alaska tourism industry.
When she’s not hunched over a keyboard banging out copy, Jennifer enjoys spending time in the Idaho outdoors with her husband, son, and Australian Shepherds, as well as sneaking in as many moments as possible scribbling on fiction-writing projects.
