With 30+ years in the graphics industry, Wendy has a broad range of experience in print communications and provides thoughtful solutions to creative challenges. Although she specializes in package design and brand identities, attention to detail and quality are the main features of her work and apply to all areas of creative.
An interest in design and illustration started early by working for an illustrator in high school and then continued by receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. The next 13 years at Hedstrom Blessing, a Minneapolis ad agency, provided the opportunity to grow from Graphic Designer to Associate Creative Director. Clients included a diverse range with Target, 3M, Bachman’s, Empi, Fabcon, Carlson Companies, IBM, Pillsbury, General Mills, and St.Paul Companies. Wendy then expanded her skills to become Co-owner and Creative Director of 4design, a graphic design studio specializing in brand identity, package design and print communications for 18 years.
Wendy is based out of Northeast Minneapolis and shares work space with her dog, Otto. She is definitely the harder working one.
