Dawn Mitchell has been in the design industry since 1994 when she worked for a couple of sign companies while she was in college studying Computer Science and Visual Communications. From there, she worked at a magazine publishing company as a Production Designer and Traffic Manager. She then landed a position at a small advertising agency as Graphic Designer and eventually Art Director where she stayed for nearly a decade.
When she moved to North Carolina from Florida in 2005, she began freelancing while searching for a new full-time position and quickly filled up her schedule with freelance clients. She then decided to stop her job search and become a full-time freelancer. Over a decade later, she’s still a very busy freelancer with several clients that have been with her for 10+ years.
Her passion is helping small- to medium-sized businesses grow and mentoring design students. She’s also active with different activities with The Graphic Artists Guild. In her personal life, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, hiking, traveling, and playing with her “furkids.”
