About Me

MandaCo (3).png
Hello, It's Manda

I am a freelance digital designer located in the great state of Minnesota. 

My Story

My creative journey started at the age of 15, picking up my first DSLR and taking a photography class. I became enchanted with composing a perfect scene, shooting the right angles, and transforming the image in photoshop to align with my visions.

 

This fascination with digital art followed me to St. Thomas, where I studied marketing. I chose to study marketing to provide me a greater knowledge of the business world. I followed a strategic communications track as well, to deepen my understanding of target audiences. 

Since finishing my formal education, I have acquired a UX/UI design certification and am working on an Adobe Illustrator certification. I have worked as a marketing intern with Inspire Brands, creating five career websites and designing promotional materials for the talent acquisition department. I then landed my first full-time position with Automation, Inc. managing all aspects of the marketing department. 

My Future

When the pandemic hit, I found myself longing for more connection and creation. I decided to fulfill a long time dream of owning my own business, creating MandaCo, LLC. For now, I am operating as a part-time freelancer on top of my full-time position. 

I now seek to find more creative work and build lasting relationships with small businesses. I provide website building, photography, content creation, and social media marketing to clients. 

I would love to connect with anyone who is interested in my abilities or just to chat about digital marketing efforts. Please fill out my contact form here and I will get back to you ASAP. 

best, manda
