In the summer of 2017, after many years of working in-house as a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and then Art Director, Connie Beecher ventured out on her own as a full time freelance artist.
Having worked for the Advertising firm, DePersico Creative, for years, Connie developed a broad knowledge of the advertising world. She created art for National and International clients, designed for various collectable companies, developed illustrations for weddings, and even ventured into the world of textile design.
Later, Connie expanded into church communications, starting with Calvary Chapel of Delaware County. She began leading their Arts Team as a volunteer, and eventually created the majority of their graphics. In time, she was hired as full time staff. The experience she gained in that role provided her with a strong understanding of a church’s communication needs. From there, Connie assisted other churches before accepting the consistent, freelance position of Communications Director for a Presbyterian church, in Wayne, Pa.
Connie’s art for the church world has included: Interior Signage • Wall Art • Stage Art • Brochures • Cards • Branding • Screen Art • Website Design • Keynote Presentations • Fund Raising Packets • Animation Images for Video • Textile Art • Newsletters • E-News • Ads • Infographics • Outdoor Signage • Indoor Displays • Social Media • Missions Display Boards • Magazine Illustrations • Book Cover Design • Architectural Renderings • Package Design and more.
For the last 10 years, Connie has been a volunteer board member of the medical mission organization, Touching Lives Ministry, where she creates graphics when needed and finds ways to help women in Kenya, through agriculture. Connie also traveled to Trinidad to minister to those in need and later served in New York City after 9/11, to assist people in crisis.
Connie also freelances graphic design and illustration for GRAMMY Award winning musicians. Drummer, Peter Erskine, has been a long time client of Connie’s: www.petererskine.com
