Maura McDonald

As an experienced art director/visual designer, I am a continual learner of graphic design, web, UI and UX skills. Throughtout my career I have worked on both regional and global campaigns including concept themes, display ads, print ads, infographics, web/social graphics, animations and presentations.

I believe creativity and collaboration are key to making it all work. My inspiration is heavily influenced by music, my environment and life experiences.

“I engaged Maura to develop a logo and design statement for my non-profit initiative. There was an extremely tight deadline on the project yet Maura delivered excellent concepts, revised them in a timely manner and delivered a logo I was thrilled with. In addition she designed multiple business cards and a t-shirt design that have been key to the branding efforts of non-profit. I recommend Maura very highly.”

“I’ve worked with Maura on the leadership board of AIGA Raleigh and am amazed at her passion for her craft. She gives her time generously to the local design and advertising community, runs her own business and stays on top of the ever-changing landscape of interactive design and programming. She has a rare combination of creative talent and organizational skills that is critical to owning your own business. I’ve enjoyed working with her and hope we continue to find opportunities to do so in the future.”
