Design is a powerful way to visually communicate your brand story. You probably already know this, but as a business owner, you aren’t able to do everything you need for your brand. I work alongside of you in bringing your visual story to life so you can focus on what you do best in your business.

ABOUT THE STUDIO
Mara Dawn is an independent design studio led by Art Director and Graphic Designer, Mara* Dawn Dockery.
I specialize in graphic design, with a focus on branding. I believe that brands can bring about positive change. And, I’m passionate about designing for them. My work focuses design minimalism, color, and a hint of the playful unexpected.
I worked as an Art Director at ad agencies for a number of years. Working for large national/global brands left me feeling burned out. I longed for more of a personal connection with the brands—and people—I work with. An urge for both greater creative fulfillment and a more considered pace of work/life compelled me to go my own way and start my own design studio.
What is the meaning behind the business name, Mara Dawn? Strength, light, and the art of the unexpected. Mara Dawn is part of my given name. People often comment about how unusual the name Mara is. It means many things, but one of them is uncommon strength. Dawn is the first break of light.
*(Not sure how to say it? Mara is pronounced: M-air-ah. It conveniently rhymes with Sara)
