What I’m Working On:

- Remodeling my house
I live to create.
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 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.”
I would love to chat with you about the work I’ve done or what I can do for you and your company. Just shoot me a message here.
I love to travel. So far, my favorite destination is Ireland. Driving on the other side of the road was a fun experience!
My hobbies include woodwork, refinishing furniture, building things, card making and watching Netflix with my dog, Murdoc – he has his own instagram :).
I am a sucker for puns. The
worst best one is probably the Cheez-It commercial with the pickle. I don’t know why but every single time I see it, I die laughing.

I’m currently working on getting certified in Google Analytics. Hopefully in a few days I’ll have this to add to my resume!
