Monica Marziani Designer Creator Collaborator

* Studied fine arts at Indiana University of Pennsylvania before transferring to finish degree in Graphic Design Communications at Philadelphia University. * Started career in branding, focusing on various multi-million dollar condominiums from Connecticut to Texas. * Met a cute boy who was a web developer, so decided to switch gears into web design. * Worked for 3 years as an Interactive Art Director working solely in web. * Introduced to mobile and was missing my print and branding, so went solo in 2011. * Been independent since have had the pleasure of creating for great companies and working with awesome teams. * Served as Creative Director of TEDxPhilly – whole gamut of work from stage design, 100+ page program booklet, website and promotional materials etc. * In my off hours I chase around two little people, cook what I can, enjoy a good glass of vino and a B rate horror flick.

my approach:

I believe that time spent planning results in the stronger, more superior end product. I am a big advocate of research and brainstorm – I like to push boundaries and try new things.

If I have an opportunity to create something with my hands, I’m going to take it. I love bringing offline mediums into the online world.

My favorite project is one that runs the gamut. I love creating a new brand, the supporting materials, and bringing it all to life on the web. I am a strong believer in the mobile first approach for all website design – for years we have focused on entertaining our users on the desktop – this time has come to pass. Let’s make things simple, smart and most of all beautiful.
