Em-press Design


Shari Van Vranken  |  President + Creative Director

I like to think I’m a quirky blend of left-brained grammar-freak and right-brained free spirit. I’m obsessive about detail and a talented listener, so I can take your ideas and bring them flawlessly to life. As a kid, I loved hand-lettering fonts and creating unique greeting cards for friends and family. That early interest has grown into a passion for typography, design, photography and illustration that has driven my business for nearly 20 years. I've worked with companies in a variety of industries — from large corporations to small businesses launching into the marketplace. Whether it’s an invitation or a full-blown rebranding, I can handle it.
