Education & Experience: The Long Version

College, Internships, and First Job

I attended college at Iowa State University in Ames, IA, and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design in 2011. During the summer of 2010 I landed my dream internship at Meredith Corporation in Des Moines, IA. I spent 6 months as a Graphic Design intern at Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest Publications learning the ins and outs of magazine and editorial design. Never before had I witnessed so many moving parts and spectacular photography.

I spent my first post-grad year working as the Graphic/Web Designer and Communication Coordinator at the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) in Rochester, MN, where I got my first taste of web design.

Corporate and Agency Life

I landed my next job as an in-house graphic designer at HDR, Inc after a move to Omaha, NE. My technical proficiency improved ten fold and I was soon creating a large of volume of work very quickly. My mastery of presentations, internal branding, and print design at HDR left me wanting more web design opportunities.

In the spring of 2014, I pursued a graphic design position at B2 Interactive, a digital marketing agency, in Omaha, NE. During my time working within both large and small teams at B2 Interactive, I had a front row seat to every aspect of agency life. I learned how to audit prospective client’s brand presence, offer ways to improve their digital assets, and implement those suggestions. This is where I really grasped how to create a cohesive strategy and learned how to articulate that strategy to others.

Freelance Adventures

I always wanted to try freelancing. I wanted to make a change which led to the creation of Kassel Creative, my own graphic and web design business. It has not been without challenges, but I feel fortunate every single day to support small local businesses and larger corporate teams.


To provide exceptional graphic design services to organizations both large and small who place a high value on visual communication.


To create unique graphic and web designs that communicate information in a creative and accessible format.


By agreeing to work together, Kassel Creative and its partners agree to approach each conversation and project with respect, humor, and decency. We will honor the knowledge and expertise that each party brings to the table.
