First let me confess: I love creating impactful, beautiful, visual communication and stunning brand identities. I consciously absorb an extreme amount of visual information even with the simplest of tasks like strolling down a store aisle. Design is everywhere and impacts our lives every day. It can instantly reflect the quality of a brand, and influence our emotional connection with that brand. I take to heart that every detail matters while I also thrive on the totality of a bigger picture vision.
I’m Terri Bradford and I’ve been a freelance designer for over 17 years. I’ve specialized in small business/nonprofit website design, personal blog customizations, web design, branding identity, logo, print, and graphic design. I hold a degree in Internet Information Systems and thrive on solving problems with innovative solutions. Technology, design, and music rock my world.
I’m a lifelong learner and enjoy keeping on top of the latest technology, social media, and design trends. When I frequent the library you’ll find me hitting up the business, technology, photography, design, music, and crafting sections to find something new, and soak up the goodness of my left and right brain connections. I get inspired by seeing things in a new light, changing up the everyday, and find joy in a happy accidents. I actually look forward to deadlines. The completed project means the design I’ve worked tirelessly on is being released to the world which in turn will make its intended impact, drive a sale, or bring inspiration. This conceptualization to completion process brings me joy. It’s tangible and touches people’s lives.
I’m a Colorado native, but in 2015 when my son left the nest to attend Georgetown University, I moved to Arizona. My son is majoring in Government and Sociology, and is a graphic designer as well. We often bond over design conversations and find ourselves laughing about the usage of bad fonts. I’m aware that this is a caveat of being a designer, and take to heart that we are making the world a more beautiful place starting with good design and font choices. It matters.
I have an incredible passion for continuing education, planning, memory keeping, papercrafting, and also having a bit of an obsession with U2 and Switchfoot. In fact, I would attend a concert every weekend if possible. If I can’t go to a concert you’ll find me: enjoying the outdoors, attending a Rockies game, getting creative with paper and stories, playing my violin or listening to something inspirational, watching YouTube, learning something new, practicing my art, or grabbing my camera to capture this world through my own creative lens. Ultimately I’m always striving to enjoy this one life and take nothing for granted
So you’ve found my secret for success in business: Do what you love. Design with heart. I love technology, designing brand identities, and ultimately designing authentically tailored solutions for creatives.
