REBECCA FIRLIK

I am an award-winning creative with over twenty years’ experience in design, campaign, and creative tactic execution. I’m an excellent strategic collaborator for marketing and advertising projects, and a visual problem-solver with solid branding chops and concept-through-launch experience. I deliver on-target visual communications in print, web, and interactive.

I’m also an awesome team player – It takes a village, right?  As a contract designer, I understand what it means to really listen to clients, integrate into a team, and offer an outside perspective to design challenges.

My abilities include, but not limited to: retail, corporate, brand, and identity development; and marketing and promotional design, including packaging, event, trade show, and environmental graphics.

Clients have included internet groups, Fortune 500, online and brick-and-mortar retail, non-profit organizations, real estate and development corporations, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, and private organizations.
