My name is Brandi Caldwell and my experience in Graphic Design extends prior to graduating Alma High School where I was a photographer, designer and editor of the school newspaper, and earned several ASPA awards. After graduation I pursued an Associate Degree in Graphic Design at UA –Fort Smith. While attending UA –Fort Smith my designs were chosen for t-shirts, ads & company logos. In my final two semesters I had the privilege to intern with USA Truck, Inc. in Van Buren designing ads, brochures, campaigns, signs and other company marketing materials.
Shortly after graduation I began designing for friends, family and the places that I worked and volunteered. Later on my husband and I established Studio 7 Services, a design and marketing assistance company. Since beginning Studio 7 Services I have had the opportunity to meet and design for hundreds of people – both individuals and companies. In 2011, I chose to go back to UA –Fort Smith in pursuit of a BBA in Marketing. Marketing had always seemed to fit with design, however it was never really taught that way, I quickly put my “spin” on everything I did. This process earned me a lot of funny looks, but I feel it gave me an edge. Once I graduated (the second time) from UA –Fort Smith, I was offered a graphic design position at Tori’s Sign Shop in Alma, where I currently design signs, vehicle wraps and banners.
