Hi. I’m Angie
AND I TAKE PHOTOS, CREATE BRANDS, AND DESIGN WEBSITES OUT OF ATLANTA, GA.
When I'm not working on my computer, I'm usually chasing around my little gal Reagan and in the few short moments I have to myself in my "spare" time - I'm either binge watching Netflix, cooking, or working out. There's nothing my hubby Thomas and I love more than making memories (we call them adventures, and you can keep up with that here on our blog if you're interested). And to really know my soul, check out my Instragram. Fair warning...It's pretty much nothing but my little girl but you'll also catch some behind the scenes venting of what it takes to run this one woman shop.
IF YOU WANNA GO WAY BACK...
I have a BFA in Graphic Design and Double Minor in Marketing and Art History from Kennesaw State University (Go Owls!). I began freelancing in 2007 while in college and was bit with the entrepreneur bug in 2006.
In college, a handful of friends launched a non-profit called Social 360, a networking opportunity for college kids to get experience all while increasing awareness for local non-profits. Artists could get experience helping rebrand a non-profit. Marketing and business majors used these small NPO's as excellent resume builders. Everyone wins. Social 360 stayed strong for almost 6 years but after much debate, my business boo, Molly and I shut her down and decided to move on in our careers. The recession hit hard for most non-profits.
In 2010, I took a Creative Director position with a digital media startup, Lift Retail, in Atlanta's tech incubator, ATDC. In 2012 Lift Retail was acquired by Verifone and I worked for them until 2017 (while still growing a successful freelance business). At Verifone Media, I was responsible for the creation and execution of brand strategies for multibillion dollar brands in the petroleum space. I also lead the UI/UX implementation of the in-store digital media platform. I was able to teach some of the top consumer packaged good brands in the world how to leverage shopper activation tactics in the digital media space. Not too shabby of a gig. And in June of 2017, with another acquisition on the horizon for our company (which I could not mentally handle again since multiple media acquisitions had occurred during my career at Verifone) and after ten years of dreaming, I finally left Corporate America to take my freelance business full time.
Since 2007, I have been lucky to design for many companies such as Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Mars Inc, Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Altria, RJ Reynolds, Circle K, Sunoco, Hess, Rukket Sports, Body Design Personal Training, Amanda Adams & her AA Bikini Body Program, and non-profits like Jeffrey Fashion Cares, She is Safe, and Ink 4 Pink. Being a pretty diverse photographer, I've shot everything from weddings in Mexico to fitness shoots for Oxygen Magazine. My work has been featured in publications & digital mediums such as Oxygen Magazine, Fitness X Magazine, BodyBuilding.Com, BLU Magazine, How He Asked, Daily Candy, Creative Loafing Atlanta, INK Atlanta, & PRICK Magazine to name a few.
If you're interested in taking your brand to new heights or need some photography done, I'd love to hear from you! Drop me a message and let's discuss your project.
