ArtbyAKW | Andi Whipkey

I majored in International Business and minored in Graphic Design at North Central College in Naperville, IL. After interning for Becker Professional Programs, I spent a few years working in various positions such as a marketing assistant, page designer at a newspaper and art coordinator for a large print production company. These experiences solidified my decision to work as a graphic designer.

I currently work for a higher education institution in the Chicagoland area as a graphic designer. Most of my work is in print design, everything from logos to full magazines. I have also worked on social media graphics, web ads, web sites, Eblasts, and even have some experience with coding HTML & CSS. 

Art is something I have done for over 10 years. Starting with silly school projects and budding into full commissions. I've worked mostly on portraits but have also done landscapes and illustrations. Most of my work is done with pens and pencils but I also like to dabble in watercolor and soft pastels. 

I love being a graphic designer and artist. It allows me to feed my creative side, as well as problem solve to find new and exciting solutions for clients. When I am not working on my computer or drawing, I can often be found reading, cooking, attempting a new workout, or taking amateur photos of my two cats and my sister's dog.  

I am always looking for a new challenge or project. If you would like to learn more about my work experience or are interested in contacting me, please clink the link below.
