Betsy Downs


I am an experienced designer, first in apparel, and now in visual communication. I chose graphic design as a second career as an opportunity to build upon the transferable elements and methods of design from my previous work experience. Both disciplines seek new ways to influence a targeted audience by creating an atmosphere, or an awareness, filling a void or solving a problem. Whether working on concept, illustration or product oriented design, I enjoy applying graphic design skills along with real world experience to reach new design solutions.

I look forward to obtaining employment in visual communication where I can incorporate my graphic design skills and experience in apparel design.
