graphic design

Dynamic, engaging print media to help people and businesses look their very best

Dory earned her AA in Graphic Communications from Kirkwood in 2005.
(She went back to school in her 30s and dragged a 10-year-old 1.6 GPA up, kicking and screaming, to a 3.492. For you folks who don’t math, that’s only .008 from getting Honors cords. She also just did the math on a calculator, because she doesn’t math either, so don’t feel all alone.)
She also has years of print shop experience, so she knows how it works from the inside.
Her ability to take care of specific photo image needs saves clients the hassle of finding another vendor.
When the project is done, worried about a print shop asking questions you don’t know answers to? Don’t worry, Dory will take care of it all!
The projects below are just a drop in the ocean. Dory has a yuuuuuuge “real” portfolio stuffed to the gills with her designs, going back to 2004. If you’d like to see it, just ask.
Cruise on through her graphic design portfolio. Try not to slip on the blood, sweat, and tears intermingled with each project.
