An Art Director's dream!
Sophisticated design elements and abbreviated copy grab hold of the reader just long enough create a positive feeling about the client.
Armed with colored
pens and cocktail napkins,
I like to grab hold and give life
to what's inside my head.

Brewer Associates
Production Artist

Graphic Designer

Art Director
Brewer Associates is an advertising agency that works primarily with B2B clients in the manufacturing sector.

U of M was where I earned my degree but Brewer was where I developed my craft, learning from a fantastic group of seasoned, talented professionals. This is where I discovered my personal viewpoint about design and how it should work in the world of real clients and unrealistic deadlines.
Susan Bachman Design

Lone Wolf Designer
Susan Bachman Design provided graphic design and consulting services to clients in diverse industries, from manufacturing to publications
and professional services.

Running your own business is like taking a Master's course in time management, work ethic and a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude. If I didn't have that before, I sure had it now.

Market Arts, Inc.
Top dog Designer
Market Arts Inc. was a marketing and web development firm that specialized in stand-out-from-the crowd communications. I was the top dog designer and directed the visual landscapes that we created on behalf of clients.

Let's see... mature design style - check! Outstanding work ethic - check! What else did I need? A writer and creative partner to connect with and form a special team. I found that in my boss.
Market Arts Creative
Art Director

Idea Engineer
Market Arts Creative was an imagination organization that shared the energy of ideas, our own and those of other people too. We produced original web-TV programs and podcasts and worked with a select group of clients who believe in the power of personality to build a branded platform.

It was during this period I learned that working
from a truly remote location is just like working in
the next cubicle.
March 2008 - October 2012

And we "loadied" up our truck and moved to Tennessee!
and now
for a brief history.
Zonya’s powerhouse personality is front and center, exactly where it should be.

I designed a branded
platform where everything about and around the personality is consistent, clear and compelling.

I have the pleasure of working from my home office up on the Cumberland Plateau.

Personality set our client apart from
the just-the-facts competitors. This ad was so popular it came back again as mailers and trade show materials.
Personality-driven ad that rated super-good on readership retention, so much so, that our client became known as "The Gap Guys."
creative brief objective
We resisted the impulse to say everything, and instead put a real face to our customer paired with a quantifiable result of working with Plex Systems.
