Hi! I'm Janelle Wourms, freelance graphic designer, artist and fine art photographer. I considers myself blessed to be living my childhood dream as both mom and artist. I enjoy all things creative including digital design, photography, painting and drawing. I love clean lines, whimsical illustration, and discovering new typefaces (Helvetica Neue is a favorite). I've found my inspiration near the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth and now Hermantown, MN – and I'm usually wishing for warmer weather. Although I consider myself “indoorsy” and prefer a cup of tea and a sketchbook, I also loves camping, kayaking and exploring the great outdoors with her family.
I have 18 years of design experience. I began my career working in publications (trade journals, magazines, newsletters) moving from production designer up to art director. In 2009 I was blessed with the opportunity to fully pursue my freelance graphic design business, Janelle Wourms Design. I've worked on everything from stationery, event invitations, ad campaigns, business cards, brochures, posters, t-shirts, publications, wedding invitations, logos, and my most unique, a zamboni vinyl wrap.
In 2016 I became a Minted artist with two winning designs in my first holiday card challenge. I continue to enter these exciting, international design challenges with the hopes of expanding my online stationary line through minted.com. I can't wait to see where this new opportunity will take me creatively.
I'm currently expanding my Zazzle shop. Be sure to stop by and check it out!
