Hello! My name is Val Costanzo, I'm an illustrator/graphic designer based in West Chester, PA. As a professional, I've been illustrating and designing for over 20 years. It's closer to 40 years if you count childhood drawings, bedroom door "keep out" signs, high school and college angst art etc. My career experience ranges from a staff illustrator position complete with a cubical and a 9-5 schedule, to "all-hands-on-deck" in bustling high-volume digital studios, to meeting clients at the Starbucks down the street, to discussing signage design at a neighborhood barbeque, to ongoing freelance contracts set up with a single phone conversation. I could go on... I will go on! I have a wide range of experience, styles, employers, clients, and goals. Because of this, I can say with confidence that I'm comfortable with just about any task in any setting. Whether it's in an office or a coffee shop, corporate or artsy, high concept or production, collaboration or solo, I'm good with it. I've worked on projects ranging from sterile annual reports, to indie movie house posters, to high-tech conceptual magazine covers, to baby shower invitations, and so on. Even with this varied list, there are still things I want to learn (and need to learn). Additionally, with such varied experiences one can't help but develop some soft skills along the way. These skills including tight deadline management, concept-to-completion project ownership, comfort working independently and collaboratively, and accepting and responding well to feedback. I'm always willing to help out, remain composed under pressure, and work really hard at NOT being the guy that holds up anyone else. In other words, I play well with others. I feel that if I go on, this will cease to be a summary and move into autobiography territory. Please feel free to check out my portfolio, link with me, or drop me an email for further conversation. I'll look forward to hearing from you! _Val Costanzo

Designer Tamara Schoener, Design, Media & Architecture
I have recently been working in the Architecture field, developing a plethora of skills. I have an extensive design-based Master's of Architecture degree from The University of Michigan. My educational background has provided me with extensive experience with all aspects of design, including but not limited to, Design, Media, Arts, video, 3D imaging, modeling and animation, Adobe Suite, SketchUp, Urban Planning, programming, Architectural drafting and drawing, and many more. I am an avid learner who picks up on great ideas and approaches that others might leave unnoticed, allowing me to see a project through the client’s eyes, and envision an effective way to achieve results. My creatively-driven optimism gives me an excitement that drives unique visions of potential, and multiple solutions for success. I work great in both independently pursuing tasks and collaborating with a team. I work best when there is a lot on my plate and am always ready to get my creativity flowing and add more to my to-do list, keeping everything in motion at all times. I am a great planner, problem-solving, mapping out a road to success, or the end-goal of a project in a clear manner for multiple scenarios. Although to some this may seem overwhelming to some, a clear, concise direction and reasonable plan can cause everything to fall into place with ease.
