Hi, and welcome to my portfolio site! My name is Trish Fairbanks and I am a senior graphic designer with The PGA of America while doing some freelance on the side.

 

Spending my 16 year career working mostly as an in-house graphic designer has given me experience in building identities and creating all manners of printed pieces. Through relationships with printers and paper reps I learned about and fell in love with paper and I have an ever growing appreciation for everything print. I have also delved into the digital arena with e-mail templates, interactive PDFs, web banners and the occasional web page design.

 

I have used the knowledge I accumulated to branch out into freelance work. Interacting with clients outside my "day job" keeps my work fresh and helps spark my creativity. My goal for every piece I design is to turn complex ideas into creative, elegant and simple visual solutions.

 

I hope you like my site! It has been a labor of love and my first venture out of the print comfort zone I live in on a daily basis. I have really enjoyed the journey.

 

Check back from time to time and see the new things I'm working on. And please feel free to keep in touch through the social media links above...

 

I can't wait to hear from you!
