Andrea’s philosophy as owner and creative director of Ocreative Design Studio is that good creative captures attention but great creative captures both attention and results.
An award-winning graphic designer, Andrea founded Ocreative in 2003. She saw a need for bold creative that could be integrated not only into traditional media, but also into the growing web market to produce interest, excitement and results. Initially, Andrea ran Ocreative as a one-woman show, in which she wore every hat, juggled every ball and managed to keep it all going successfully… so successfully that she attracted more and more satisfied clients. The agency’s diverse client base has grown to include everything from small businesses to non profits, to multimillion dollar corporations. As a result of her success, she was happily forced to give up her solo act and build a strong team of designers and developers.
Andrea’s love of great typography (collecting examples of lowercase g is her personal favorite) was honed at the University of Wisconsin-Stout where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Graphic Design. Her responsibilities as Creative Director include logos, identity and branding, graphic design, marketing and advertising, and web site design and strategy. Andrea is also an active member of the Public Relations Society of America. (PRSA).
When she isn’t test driving funky typefaces on her Mac, you will find her donating time to her other passion: volunteering in the community. She is currently an active member of both the Delafield and the Oconomowoc Area Chambers of Commerce.
