GRAPHIC DESIGN IS GOOD FOR YOU
Please join us for a night with Ann of the 47th, Jen of JHill Designs and Kate of 3 Square Design, three local ladies with diverse backgrounds and different expertise in the many realms of graphic design. Whether you are a business owner wanting to learn more about graphic design or you happen to be a graphic designer yourself, these ladies will discuss why graphic design is good for you. Featured topics include branding, packaging design, the purpose of design for website and blogs, identity and brand narrative, as well as online and interactive marketing.





Ann Theresa Karash is a happy designer. She has served interactive and multimedia art director roles in marketing and advertising agencies over the past ten years, working with clients such as Covidien, Liberty Mutual, Novartis, and Microsoft. However, realizing that her professional fulfillment skews inversely proportional with the size of client she works with (and the scope/specialization of project), Ann started the 47th (a happy, creative consultancy) with like-minded compatriots, focusing on creative/conceptual strategies (and implementations) for kindred companies. Ann has a plethora of extracurricular activities, for which she accepts any excuse to involve in her day job, including endless experimentation with plastic cameras, obsession with feedback mechanisms, bread baking, compulsive reading, and storytelling aspirations.

Jennifer Hill is the owner and designer behind JHill Design. She attended the Massachusetts College of Art + Design,where she graduated with a BFA in design in 2001. Jennifer then went on to work for the acclaimed beauty company, Fresh. She developed her sense of color and pattern while perfecting the aesthetics of “clean” design. She was able to expand on her doodling and develop patterns for the company’s packaging and collateral. From there Jennifer broke out on her own to start JHill Design and develop her drawings series "Places I Have Never Been, drawings of imaginary vacations." JHill Design's design services focuses on branding and web design for small retail, restaurant and creative businesses, as well as packaging design. Some clients include Moroccan guest house Peacock Pavilions, french fragrance company Institut Tres Bien, local fashion designer Anne Reagan, and local retail stores Acquire, Good and Fire Opal.

Kate Caprari is the founder and principal designer of Three Square Design -- a small graphic and web design studio based in Boston. Kate specializes in working with companies in the creative fields: artists & designers, small businesses, and non-profit organizations. Her client list includes Design*Sponge, the Sartorialist, and many other designers and socially-responsible companies. In the winter of 2009, Kate co-taught a master's level course on Business & Design at the New England School for Art & Design. Kate believes in the power of design and its ability to create positive social impact and meaningful relationships. (http://www.threesquaredesign.com/)
