My name is Brenda Sepanek, a graphic designer
with over 18 years of print experience. As a child,
if I wasn't playing on the baseball field, you'd find
me hand-lettering my favorite typefaces. My love
for typography began in 5th grade, when Mr. Berger would hand out Chartpak books and encourage us
to select a typeface to draw. In high school, I became the "go-to" gal for everyone's sign-making needs.

My talent in both visual arts and sports sent
me to Keene State College on a college softball scholarship to earn a Bachelor of Science in
Graphic Design with a Minor in Art. After college,
my adventurous side led me to San Diego where I
earned a Web Design & Multimedia certificate.
Since then, I have been working as a contract print designer in the corporate world. I have dabbled
in the web over the years, but my focus has
always been on print solutions.

My motto is Work Hard. Play Hard. When I am not working, I am a professional sports fan. Fenway
Park was my "home away from home" for many
years and I was fortunate to enjoy many New England championships during my time in Boston.

During Brenda's time at Harvard Pilgrim, she created numerous sponsorship program ads and worked on some brand advertising, as well. Brenda was strategic, creative and thoughtful with every project, no matter how "small" some might have seemed or how quick the turnaround time was. She quickly understood our brand and translated that into her work. She was also a terrific fit with us culturally and we would snap her up in a second if we had full-time position for her. Brenda's talent and attitude are truly special gifts.

I worked with Brenda Sepanek at UMass Boston on various design projects. During this time she had shown great creativity in designing a wide variety of publications, logos, posters, banners, brochures, charts, and more. Her eye for design is first-rate as are her skills in Adobe Creative Suite and other leading design software. Brenda was recognized around the office as a team player with
a “can-do” attitude. Her good work ethic and ability to quickly complete any job thrown at her has won the accolades of her clients. I recommend Brenda to any employer seeking a talented, versatile, graphic designer.

John Sommers

I had the opportunity to work with Brenda when she was hired by a local minor-league baseball team to do all
of their creative branding / design work. It was a pleasure to partner with her
on multiple projects throughout the team's season. Brenda is a skilled graphic designer who understands the production process and was able to play a strategic role in the team's marketing from the ground floor, adding-value throughout the process. Where other's would have gotten discouraged, Brenda saw opportunity for growth. She was often expected to turn large projects around with little direction in small amounts of time, and did so without
any hesitation. Brenda has worn many hats in her career thus far, and she would be an asset to any organization because of this. I don't hesitate to recommend Brenda to any of my clients who need assistance with design work, and I'm sure that we'll collaborate on projects for years to come!

Brenda is an extremely talented, creative, and motivated designer. She handled
any task that was assigned to her with professionalism and it was a pleasure
to work with her. Our office is extremely
busy and she was frequently required to turn around work very quickly, which
she excelled at. She brought a fresh perspective to our design pieces while maintaining our identity. I'm happy to enthusiastically recommend Brenda and
I welcome anyone to contact me directly
if they have any further questions.

Allison Flett

We hired Brenda to help us with a

major rebranding initiative for a significant nonprofit client. We were
not only pleased with the creative output, but also impressed with her dedication to completing the project long after her contract had expired. As with many pro bono clients, we simply didn't have the budget to keep Brenda on as a paid contractor. Her response was to go ahead and finish the job anyway. Brenda fit in with our staff almost immediately, taking the time to get to know everyone personally. And she was always willing to help out wherever she was needed.
