Monica Yother: Graphic Design, Studio 127
When I design for clients, I listen and ask a lot of questions. I look for visual ways to tell their story, and help new businesses find their authentic identity. I build a lot of websites these days, and am constantly learning new things. Being an artist as well as a graphic designer, I just cannot use templates, so every thing I do is custom work, created specifically for my client.
My art is all about capturing movement and grace, strength and vulnerability. I gravitate towards dance and equine figures. My dance art is often recognized because every year for the last 10 years I have created original pieces for Huntsville Ballet to use through the season. It’s interesting that while that art is fluid and loose, I paint highly detailed “horse and hound” portraits…and birds, too! I guess it’s that dichotomy of my whole career… I love being able to walk a few steps from my computers to my easel and switch from designer to painter.
