    about

    A Capp.

Whether they're new to the game or have distinguished histories generations old, brands have stories to share. I enjoy uniting these stories and their audience through beautiful, engaging, and accessible design.

Currently, I am the Brand Marketing Graphic Designer at Pendleton Woolen Mills. I work closely with my direct supervisor, the company President, Sales Reps, Management and teams throughout various departments to design pitch presentations and improve the effectiveness of our sales materials, trim, packaging, and trade show displays. I've collaborated on hangtags, labels, and marketing materials with companies from Lucasfilm, to Nike, Portland Timbers, National Park Service, and Poler Outdoor Stuff.

Prior to joining Pendleton, I gained experience through working in the screen printing, marketing, branding, and advertising industries, and as a freelance designer. I've also been fortunate enough to volunteer my time creating design solutions for non-profit organizations such as the Hollywood Theatre, the Creative Advocacy Network, and various area political campaigns.

I've worked with some of the best creative and strategic minds around on projects that have achieved impressions in the billions.

This is what I love to do.
