Coming to you straight from my studio in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey!

Hello, my name is Deana. I am the founder of Media48 which is my design studio. My career began over 17 years ago. I started work in the creative department of a manufacturing company and then moved onto doing design work for pharmaceutical and publishing companies. I’ve since landed a role as a designer for a financial services company. I have worn every single hat in this industry I can think of. I remember the days when I was preparing film for print production, or making catalog mockups to show clients. I even took a step outside the design world and managed projects flowing through the creative process.

The freelance world has always had my heart because of the excitement new projects bring and the excitement that comes along with problem-solving a new brand that you typically wouldn’t get in a corporate setting. I had a friend who was getting married in Vermont. She approached me about designing her ski-resort themed invitations and Save the Dates. Her bridal shower invitation was a ski ticket. (see project here) Another client was referred to me by another friend, this client had written a book and needed the layout designed and produced. (see project here)

Over the past 17 years, I have covered so much terrain that myself and my network of experts are ready to create agency quality work without the agency price tag! So, please, feel free to send me a message so we can start brainstorming your next project!
