Hi Im BrianaI am a graphic designer who enjoys creating marketing materials for small businesses.
I was born June 25, 1989 in Robbinsdale Minnesota. I attended high school in Princeton Minnesota where I attended various computer classes and ended up falling in love with graphic design.
I recently attended the Art Insitute of Pittsuburgh Online where I graduated with an associates degree in graphic design. I love every aspect of graphic design but I mainly specialize in marketing materials for small businesses, creating invitations, and editing photographs for gifts or special occasions.
The following pieces within my portfolio are laid out specifically to showcase the work that I have created in order from most relevant to relevant. It showcases skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. The designs range from photo editing, business cards, typography, event announcements, packaging design, and magazine spreads.

My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a treeToward heaven still,And there's a barrel that I didn't llBeside it, and there may be two or threeApples I didn't pick upon some bough.But I am done with apple-picking now.Essence of winter sleep is on the night,e scent of apples: I am drowsing o.I cannot rub the strangeness from my sightI got from looking through a pane of glassI skimmed this morning from the drinking troughAnd held against the world of hoary grass.It melted, and I let it fall and break.But I was wellUpon my way to sleep before it fell,And I could tellWhat form my dreaming was about to take.Magnied apples appear and disappear,Stem end and blossom end,And every eck of russet showing clear.My instep arch not only keeps the ache,It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round.I feel the ladder sway as the boughs bend.And I keep hearing from the cellar bine rumbling soundOf load on load of apples coming in.For I have had too much
Of apple-picking: I am overtiredOf the great harvest I myself desired.ere were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch,Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall.For allat struck the earth,
No matter if not bruised or spiked with stubble,
Went surely to the cider-apple heapAs of no worth.One can see what will troubleis sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is.Were he not gone,e woodchuck could say whether it's like hisLong sleep, as I describe its coming on,Or just some human sleep.

It was the year 1692 in Cradley, Worcestershire, the historical English type founder, William Caslon was born. Before William Caslon made his impact on the world with his famous type face he was an apprentice to an engrav-er of gun locks and barrels. When Caslon reached the age of 24 he opened up his own engraving shop, creating tools for bookbinders and silver chasers. William Caslon caught his big break when his work was noticed by a man named John Watts. Caslon worked for Watts by cutting type punches at various presses throughout London. In 1720 William Caslon created the English Arabic typeface that was used for the New Testament in Arabic. In the year 1722 William Caslon met William Bowyer, a printer. Caslon had cut roman, italic, and Hebrew typefaces for Bowyer.
The roman typeface that he cut for Bowyer was not used until the year 1726. This typeface later on be-came known as the Caslon. William Caslons typefaces became very successful throughout England. Shortly after the rise of Caslons typefaces he received loans and trade that were sufficient enough to give him the opportunity to set up his own type foundry. In 1734 William Caslons first specimen sheet was issued. The specimen sheet had 14 different sizes of his roman and italic types. William Caslons typefaces began to spread throughout Europe and eventually to the American colonies. Caslons typefaces were so popular that one of his fonts was used to print the most important documents known today, the Declaration of Independence. William Caslon died on the 23rd of January 1766 in Bethnal Green, London. Despite his death Caslon still lives on through the Typography community, the fa-mous Caslon typeface is amongst the most popular typeface known today.
