Web Developer and Graphic Designer
Co-founder of POTION WEB & GRAPHIC DESIGN, Chanel helps business owners with their branding, graphic design and WordPress websites. At the sweet spot where creative meets technical, is where her talents and experience combine to develop web platforms and marketing collateral design, helping business owners grow their business. She designed and developed the new Fordable Fundraising website, and provides ongoing tech support for the website.
Chanel has a BA (Honors) in Brand Leadership, with ten years’ experience as a Graphic Designer and Art Director at big ad agencies including Ogilvy, Y&R, Saatchi & Saatchi, Darcy’s and TBWA, working on big brands including Apple, American Express, BMW, Audi, Land Rover, British Airways, Danone, Colgate and Harry Potter.
She has traveled to four continents, danced the Argentinian Tango, bungee jumped 364 feet, and speaks four languages (a little rusty in two of them.) Chanel is passionate about sustainability, has an enduring interest in science and the universe, and an inexplicable addiction to masterfully written historical novels.
Chanel supports two incredible organizations with pro bono graphic design services and website hosting:
- Emergency Volunteer Services (EVS) – support, training and fundraising for disaster management.
- Chic Mamas Do Care – provides early childhood development classrooms in disadvantaged communities.
