I am a graphic artist and illustrator with a music design niche. As a musician myself, I am specifically able to translate aural art into visual design. I have over 16 years experience working for musicians, artists, bands, record companies & publications. I attended art school at DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois where I received a B. A. in Media Arts with a double emphasis in photography digital video. Likewise I minored in communications with an emphasis in media studies. While in Chicago, I created web graphic design for the university library digital collection, mentored with Rolling Stones photographer Paul Natkin & freelanced for the Chicago Red Eye newspaper. After moving to New York City, I worked primary in marketing, sales, promotion, social media, & design including as an artist-in-residence for the Antagonist Art movement & as a co-assistant manager at New York School of Rock. I like to think of myself as vintage/ lo-fi in style.

    “This is the second project I asked Mystie to complete and if I need another, I will hire her again! She is fast, efficient, talented, and has excellent communication and design skills. Once again, she seemed to read my mind and create the look, feeling, and emotions we hoped to portray. I'm a fan of Mystie and would highly recommend her! Thanks, Mystie! Paul”

  • image of pesdad Design project $350.00 USD

    “Mystie is amazing! She has proved to be efficient, professional, talented, timely, and an excellent communicator and designer. She provided a thorough structure to help us define our project and created designs that matched our feedback and wishes. She kept us on track even though WE missed numerous deadlines and once we gave her the required information, turned it around almost immediately. Amazingly, she completed our band logo project on time, even though we actually changed the name of the band midstream! We couldn't be happier with her and are grateful for her talents! Thank you for your great work, Mystie. Enjoy the bonus....you surely deserved it!”
