NICE TO MEET YOU
"We're going to sit at our desks and keep typing while the walls fall down around us because we're creative - the least important, most important thing there is."
- Don Draper, Mad Men
Leann graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design from The University Of Wisconsin Whitewater in Spring 2009. During her time as a student at UW-Whitewater, she passed several art courses with high honors, worked graphic design jobs on campus,
and won the Chancellor's purchase award, from Chancellor Richard J. Telfer, for one of her acrylic wood paintings.
After graduation Leann moved to the Milwaukee Wisconsin area, but still remained active as a UW-Whitewater Alumni. She was a guest speaker at UW-Whitewater for an undergrad graphic arts portfolio review class, an art juror
for the Whitewater Pinpoint design
magazine, and has displayed artwork for sale at several
exhibits throughout Wisconsin.
Now Leann is a graphic designer and creative director, still growing as an artist and learning to wear other creative hats. She currently works for the company Central Garden & Pet. Her duties include graphic design for packaging layouts, print materials, in-store merchandising, digital ads, and social media graphics. Sometimes she works with the brand team to provide creative direction at fun photo shoots too!
On her off days, Leann likes to make paintings and illustrations at home. She also sells handmade cards, button pins, and art prints at local Milwaukee vendor events. Some other fun interests include: biking, tennis, craft beer, traveling, and new adventures. She currently lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
