founder & graphic designer

Welcome to Oesfreelancing Graphic Design! The name is pronounced ‘ACEfreelancing.’ To some, it’s a bit of a mystery how to pronounce it. So now you know how to pronounce it.

I hold an associate’s degree in graphic design and a bachelor’s degree in marketing. My work experience in the graphic design industry extends to over 25 years. And I have six years of experience in marketing as a marketing coordinator. 

I have spent all those 25 years in print shops. I learned the ins and outs of offset printing and different types of binding, among many other things. The knowledge and experience I obtained have followed me throughout my career as I became an entrepreneur in graphic design in August of 2021.

My greatest accomplishment was designing the Wet Nose Therapy book. This book was dedicated to 13 dog rescue organizations. The proceeds from the book were split among the organizations. In the end, the editor and I raised approximately $13,000 to divide among them. It was such an honor to be a part of this beautiful project.

I currently reside in central Illinois near the University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana campus. My cat and I are living the dream each day! When I’m not wearing many hats, you can find me cooking, sipping on some good wine, or enjoying some TV time. I also enjoy playing my drums and electric guitars.

I look forward to helping you with all of your graphic design needs. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions by contacting me via email or my contact form.


Digital Graphics

I currently create digital graphics for my client in Florida and the two nonprofits I volunteer for. You can see many of these graphics on their social media sites and websites.

Website Design

I’ve created three websites besides my own. Each site was built on different platforms: WordPress, GoDaddy, Wix, and Mailchimp. Each platform has a ‘drag and drop’ feature built into it. This makes for ease of building a beautiful site that represents your business to your satisfaction.

Brand Recognition

I create brand recognition your customers will want to remember. This recognition can be specific color palettes, a specific geometric design, or using negative space to resemble your brand.

This guy is my son, a Marine Corps vet. Every time I design something I always ask his opinion when he’s around. He is quick to give it to me. And he’s honest. Every now and then he’ll tell me how cool or awesome my work looks. So he’s also my cheerleader. He’s also honest to tell me what needs improving. I really value his insights and rely on his honest opinion of my work.

Every business needs more than one creative, intelligent mind to become a success. Kristen May was my partner in my marketing capstone at Franklin University in 2014. I always valued her input then and still do to this day. She’s smart, honest, and gets right to the point. I value her input greatly! Click on her picture to learn more about Kristen.




This is Pennyanne. She needs my attention the most when I’m sitting down working on design projects. She’ll get right in front of the laptop and walk on the keys. And sometimes she’ll lay right on the keyboard! So I have to stop for a few to give her some TLC. Don’t worry! I stop the clock when I have to do this! She’s a team player for sure.
