More About This Webinar or Presenter

Dawn Mitchell has been in the design industry since about 1994 when she started working for a few sign companies while she was in college. Since then, she’s worked at a magazine publishing company as a Production Designer and Traffic Manager. She then landed a position at a small advertising agency as a Graphic Designer and eventually Art Director.

When she moved to North Carolina from Florida in 2005, she had trouble finding a new full-time position and started freelancing on the side to help fill in the gaps while she looked for a new job. She quickly filled up her schedule with freelance clients and pretty soon, she didn’t have time to look for a full-time position. 12 years later, she’s still a very busy freelancer with a waiting list and several clients that have been with her for 10+ years.
