My name is Gina Janovitz and I'm a graphic design professional with 20 years experience in print and digital design, with a focus on branding and marketing.
Since starting my fulltime freelance design business seven years ago, I've worked remotely with a number of clients, consistently balancing strategy, design, and project management. My design style is a mixture of classic and modern, with a light, feminine touch. I am moved by beautiful typography, pattern, and color and deeply appreciate when these elements are successfully combined.
In addition to hands-on designing, I've mentored future designers during portfolio review sessions, panel discussions, student interviews, and classroom training.
I take a creative and passionate approach to each and every project and welcome any opportunity to challenge and expand my abilities. In 2019, I joined the design team at Board and Brush Creative Studio. There, I'm able to combine my joy of teaching with hands-on design in a whole new way.
