Presentation is everything!
With a background in typesetting, I was fast becoming the designated "flyer girl" for many local musicians and dance artists in 1980's New York City. Another motivation in this field was the desire to improve upon worn newspaper clippings and photos of various retired and semi-retired show business icons in the community.
The restoration of these treasured historical documents and photos were made into brochures or pamphlets to be introduced to a new generation of enthusiasts. Using my creative skills to honor the accomplishments of these great performers, became my mission.
Graphics continued to tap my shoulder as the industry began flourishing with the advent of many new hi-tech options. Having worked for many corporations in various industries, on any given job, long acquired typing skills lined me up with opportunities as first trainee on newer advanced technologies, further providing a continuum of growth that has evolved into the computer age as we know it today. With it came more advanced pathways for further development in the aesthetics of design. As a result, Darlene Gist Graphic Design (DGGD) was established
Always excited furthering my knowledge and applying years of experience with advanced technology, I remain dedicated and enthusiastic in service to others.
