In the summer of 2017, after many years of working in-house as a graphic designer/illustrator, Connie Beecher ventured out on her own as a freelance artist. Currently, Connie freelances full time hours for a church as their Communications Director.
Having worked as an in-house illustrator, graphic designer and in time became an art director for the Advertising firm, DePersico Creative, Connie developed a broad knowledge of the advertising world over the course of years. She created art for National and International clients, various collectable companies, developed designs and illustrations for a wedding company, and even ventured into the world of textiles and wallpaper design.
Later, Connie expanded into church communications with Calvary Chapel of Delaware County. She began leading their Arts Team as a volunteer, eventually created the majority of their graphics. In time, was hired as full time staff. She worked with them for 17 years all together. The experience she gained in that role provided her with a strong understanding of a church’s communication needs. Connie was then able to assist other churches, as a freelancer after that.
For the last 10 years, Connie has also been a volunteer board member of the medical mission organization, Touching Lives Ministry. She accepted the role of Women’s Ministry Leader while also assisting with graphic design when needed.
Connie freelances for GRAMMY Award winning musicians and enjoys designing their CD packages, App Icons, Posters, Ads, T-Shirts, and more. Drummer, Peter Erskine, is a long time client.
