As D3 Advertising’s founder and President, Dawn successfully manages her business as a creatively-driven, full-service advertising and graphic design firm. She developed the firm to be a first-class alternative to large, impersonal advertising agencies, in-house printer “design” services and freelancers. Over the past twenty years, Dawn has utilized cutting-edge technology and innate creativity to create powerful and visionary marketing projects.
Through a formal college education in Connecticut in Fine Art and Graphic Design, her natural talent was refined and she launched her career. Dawn’s early work with ESP Advertising & Design in Stamford, Connecticut, repeatedly garnered the highest awards in the industry for the collateral, radio and TV campaigns she designed for the Crystal Rock Water Company. This was only the beginning for this versatile, energetic designer, who successfully founded D3 Advertising a few years later.
Dawn’s portfolio includes design projects for Bausch & Lomb, Ocean Spray, Miller Lite, the World Wrestling Federation, Clairol, U.S. Tobacco, Rexall, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, Pine Crest School and Office Depot, to name but a few. Her skill, creativity and passion launched NexStore’s brand and image, enabling them to grow their franchise. Dawn’s expertise also helped to secure Loggerhead Club & Marina’s rightful place in their industry by branding the recently recognized “Number 1 Marina” in the country. She is currently working on a ten-year labor-of-love product with a private client; the product has secured worldwide patents and working on FDA approval for mass market distribution. Dawn is now thrilled at the opportunity to work with the Unicorn Children’s Foundation and serve on the board with such passionate, intelligent and amazing individuals.
Having become well-known within the industry as staying on top of the latest technology, Dawn is frequently invited to attend Art Director's Master Class seminars given by Adobe, which she attends every year. These exclusive, hands-on seminars are offered to only a small group of the country's most talented art directors and focus primarily on the latest technology for print and web designers.
Because Dawn loves applying her creative skills to any project she collaborates on with her clients, her endless efforts in the creative process are highly recognized and appreciated by her long-time clients.
