Having worked for the Advertising firm, DePersico Creative, for many years, Connie developed a broad knowledge of the advertising world. She designed for Fortune 500 companies, created art for various collectable companies, developed wedding graphics and products, and even ventured into the world of textile design. Later, Connie expanded into church communications. She began leading a church’s Arts Team as a volunteer, freelanced for the church and was eventually hired full time to handle their church communications, as they grew. The experience she gained in that role provided her with a strong understanding of a church’s communication needs.
Later, through the collaboration with Multi GRAMMY Award-winning artist, Peter Erskine, and his record label, Fuzzy Music, Connie’s graphic design skills flourished, leading to her creative design work being featured on numerous GRAMMY nominated albums under Peter’s music label, followed by work with many other GRAMMY winning artists. Connie’s recent, creative design work was featured on a GRAMMY winning album by Multi GRAMMY Award-winning artist, Eliane Elias. Connie just completed the second CD package design for Eliane in August 2022.
