Hi! My name is Isabel Beeson. I was born in Atlanta, GA and raised in Charleston, SC. I graduated with honors from the University of Florida, with a BFA in Graphic Design. My interests include traveling, kayaking and hiking, true crime podcasts, pop culture, and complex female characters. When I’m not working I like to spend time with family and friends or read mysteries, historical and science fiction, or anything by Michael Connelly. Most of my personal belongings are covered in stickers representing my favorite tv shows, movies, and music. I can usually be found watching crime shows, medical dramas, or any show where the characters learn absolutely no lessons and continually make bad decisions (I’m looking at you Pretty Little Liars). Let me know if you want to meet up and discuss why Tyrion Lannister is the best Game of Thrones character or how Shonda Rhimes has personally changed my life. I’ll be the one probably wearing all black or a baseball cap!
I have grown up frequently visiting other countries and creating unique memories with contrasting aesthetics. As a person, I think I have developed an understanding of how diverse our world is and that there is never any one way something should look. As I have grown older I have also grown an immense appreciation for the hard work and dedication my parents put into their professional lives in order to allow my siblings and I to have these experiences. This influenced the importance I place on work ethic.
My previous job experiences have taught how solid design concepts can translate across industries. I have worked as a designer in book publishing, professional sports, high-end construction, and retail to name a few. I have worked in a collaborative environment but also as a remote employee. I became very self-directed, while still maintaining my ability to work as a part of a team. I am confident in my ability to meet hard deadlines and work well under pressure.
As a designer, my wide range in personal taste only further expands my pool of inspiration. I am a very conceptual designer with a strong attention to detail. I like to work with symbolism and would define my design style as adaptive with a trademark playful twist! I am more of a Meredith Grey when it comes to specialization. (Get it…She’s the Chief of General Surgery? Know your references people!) I believe that the overlap of who I am as a designer and who I am as a person will only further my goal of working as a professional graphic designer.
