designer and illustrator Andalee Motrenec

Custom design for individuals, small businesses, and corporate entities. Specializing in printed programs, brochures, and pamphlets.

Early 2017 I decided to take my experience working as a graphic designer and illustrator and become completely freelance. I have for a long time held this dream in the palm of my hand. If you're not the reading type you can view my body of work here otherwise come along with me for a short story.

My father was a small business owner and entrepreneur in the classic car industry. He was also an inventor and we collaborated creatively on marketing his business and working on his branding. Possessing a restless creative mind, he began his business in 2010 and over the years I saw it grow into a sustainable income.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere. -- Albert Einstein
When he passed away I realized how much I am like him creatively and in how passionate I am about the creative field. He would have wanted me to have my own business.

I denied this dream for several years while attending college and while he was building his business. Every morning he would get up at 6 a.m. and work towards his dream. I attended college to obtain a bachelor and master's degree in English, researching Victorian literature. Although I did not pursue academia, it inspired me and informs what I do now in the world of design. As we grow we mediate and move through our numerous identities (Intersectionality, Crenshaw). These identities inform our other ones and perhaps this is how we feel the impetous to move forward.

Over the past 8 years I worked freelance, also while working full time in the graphic design field for various institutions, and from that experience I discovered my true passion is working for clients. Although the field provides great experience for designers who are starting out, it can narrow the range of creativity and projects a designer is allowed to explore. I love the variety of projects my clients approach me with and I hope to collaborate in the future with you.
