Dana Gray | Owner & Creative Director

Dana Gray

Owner & Creative Director

Dana has been a designer since the days of MySpace. Her creative career started during her time at East Carolina University’s School of Art & Design, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Throw a few internships and other design jobs into the mix, and you’ve got an eager mind with a great amount of knowledge and a lot of ambition.

Dana likes to unwind with live music, a good book, video games, or by just spending quality time with her husband and pitty pup, Ashe. (Ashe is aptly named after a League of Legends character.)

Karlie Altherr

Graphic Designer

Karlie is a Buffalo native and RIT grad, now living in Waxhaw, NC. She is a graphic designer with a 10 year background focused in corporate branding. Her favorite way to jumpstart creativity is to practice her illustration skills, especially when whimsical hand lettering comes into play!

A serial crafter at heart, you can find her most evenings out in her studio sipping a decaf mocha while sewing something adorable for her little girl. (Her son is less than thrilled in this area and would rather she just make good snacks.)
