About Me

Hello! Welcome to my portfolio website.
I am Marianne Simmons; designer, photographer and lover of all aspects of design from web to print.

I am eager to expand my professional career along with making new connections and friends. I have years of experience working with an array of clients from non-profit organizations to universities to small businesses. Web design has been a major part of my life since creating my first webpage at the age of ten. Photography is my other passion, growing out of a simple digital camera given to me as a gift from my parents. I enjoy capturing honest emotions one frame at a time. In addition to my creative spirit, I have an interest in the business and marketing side of the creative industry.
