Carrier Coffee & Tea Company

My husband and I founded this company to introduce our community to cafe culture. While he took the lead on logistics, I took the lead on all things creative including store design and product development. I also created and implemented our strategic marketing plan, along with designing our website and logo.

Onawa RAGBRAI 2018

During the summer of 2018, Our community hosted the Registers Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI). As the starting town, this involves approximately 6 months of planning for an influx of 25,000 additional people overnight. I lead a group of 10 people for 2 different committees in the areas of marketing and publicity. Our marketing committee chose the theme “Superhero” for our town. I personally designed the Onawa RAGBRAI logo and built the website. This is where I learned the most about user experience web design. With 5-7 different committees requiring information to be placed on the website, I had to design something that would be simple to navigate and provide the users with everything they needed to navigate our community.
