Twenty-One Picas, LLC was originally created in 2012 as a freelance design company. I named it Twenty-One Picas because 21 is my favorite number and the day I was born (in November – I’m a scorpio!). Picas is a measurement in design, mostly used in print design. There are 12 pixels in a pica and if you reverse 12 it’s 21! It comes full circle!
In 2015, I took a break from freelance. However, I have worked on small projects from time to time. I still “do business as” Twenty-One Picas (or 21picas) but I no longer run it as a “freelance company.”
My ultimate goal is to find a place as a creative, full time. I am not looking to relocate, I just bought a house in St. Louis!, but I will travel for work.
My experience involves working with non-profits, societies, sports entities, small businesses and agencies.
For web, I primarily work with WordPress but I am always up for a challenge and love to learn new things. Although I am not a developer by any means, I do have extensive knowledge on HTML and CSS basics.
I have worked with a variety of companies, large and small. The majority of which were through Fresh ID when I worked there as a creative director, art director and graphic designer. When Fresh ID temporarily closed, some of the retaining clients were transferred to me and I did work as 21picas. You can view my portfolio of work here. However, if you’d like detailed information on some of the pieces, you can view them on the Fresh ID website. Kristi Colvin has since re-established Fresh ID and continues to do excellent work.
I am currently a one woman show; however throughout my site you may see me mention “we.” When I do that, it either means it was an older project where I worked with a team of other people or it means when I use to run 21picas as a company and used the term “we.” I know it’s a little confusing but sometimes it feels weird to describe something strictly as “me” or “I.”
