Conquering the World of Graphics & Web Design
Hey there! So as you’ve probably guessed my name is Chelsea. First, let me say welcome to my site! Second, let me give you a little insight into who I am and what I do.
I am a full-time Graphics & Web Designer who currently works for a growing national marketing agency called InSync Media. My job entails a great deal of flexibility and change as to what I can do including but not limited to Graphics and Web Design, which just happens to be what I went to college for.
People often ask me what my life story is so… Here we go.
For the most part, I’m an open book. I’m actually a bit of a chameleon in terms of personality, which can prove very useful when designing for a wide variety of industries. I also have a wide range of interests like art, history, gaming, traveling, etc. and am always open to trying or learning something new.
I am the middle child of three; I have two brothers, Brandon who is older and a professional golfer, and Tristan the youngest currently works in sales. I currently have one pet, Dakota (species: cat, age”: 18+, skills: master vermin catcher and napping queen).
Before graduating high school in 2010, my dad told me, “Chelsea, you need to go to college for something you can make money in. And I won’t help paying for just art school.” So as I prepped to go to college, I settled on the option of Graphic Design because it allowed me to capture a degree in art while still giving me marketable skills. Thus, I started off at Fort Lewis College in Durango, with little to no knowledge of what I was doing besides creating art, on a computer that I didn’t know how to use. While at college I developed basic design and marketing skills, and ended up graduating in 2014 with a Major in Graphic Design and a Minor in Marketing.
After college, I moved back home and begun the search looking for my first “adult” job. I didn’t find anything until a year later when I joined up with a small marketing company, Abrams Strategic Group. I was working for Abrams for about two months as an intern, when suddenly we made the switch to creating the building blocks for Proximity Space Coworking, the first ever small town model of a coworking space with its own member management system, which opened approximately 9 months later. My then solely Graphic Design internship turned into a full-time designer + community manager position. Over the course of the next two years, I quickly developed skills in networking and management which helped me to develope a strong relationship with one of our members who would latter become my next employer, Laura the CEO of InSync Media.
I started working for InSync, as its first-ever full-time employee, in 2017. While my position switched back to Graphic Designer, I literally did just about anything and everything from Illustration to Web Design to Videography and more in the first few years of working for InSync. Over time, as more staff came in, my role solidified to that of Sr. Design Manager. While my range of “design work” is still ever-fluctuating my primary focus has shifted to website design.
Being a designer of any kind really has its challenges, but the types of projects and companies I have the privilege to work with keeps life exciting.

Chelsea's Graphics & Web Design Ethos
Everything has a story. My job as a graphics and web designer is to discover that story and give it a visual representation.
