with purpose.

WHAT MAKES GINSENG SO SPECIAL?

You do.
We promise not to pretend to know what you want, or to arbitrarily tell you what you need. From our first conversation, we focus on your story and your goals. And they remain at the core of any long-term, collaborative and meaningful partnership.
When working with Ginseng, you communicate directly with your designer, not a customer-service rep or sales executive. Often, that single designer handles all aspects of your project — though we do have a network of developers, illustrators, videographers, photographers and/or printers to call upon when needing a larger team.
Running and growing a business is hard enough. Let’s make design easy — maybe even fun. We’re not afraid to high-five new clients on completed projects, or to raise a glass to ongoing successes of longtime partners.

 


 

  • Tanya Shaw Jeffrey Colorado SpringsTANYA SHAW JEFFREY
    Art Direction + Design

    Tanya got her start in graphic design while in high school, creating cut and paste fliers for local punk rock bands. She brings that same industrious creativity to her work today, and enjoys folding paper and building pop up cards until way past bedtime. But while the rest of the world sleeps, she’s translating those skills into hand crafted print products for her clients here.

    Before making Ginseng a full-time operation, Tanya served as editorial art director at the Colorado Springs Independent. For her work both inside and outside the Indy, in 2014 she received the inaugural Next Generation Award from the American Advertising Federation of Colorado Springs. The award recognizes young professionals who demonstrate ambition and leadership skills, and are of service to the community. In 2016, AAFCOS presented Tanya with the Designer of the Year award as well.

    Tanya currently art directs Springs, the largest subscription based city mag in Southern Colorado. Tanya’s current volunteer work includes assisting the graphic design program at Pikes Peak Community College; and she has served on the MeadowGrass Music Festival steering committee for almost 6 years. Tanya is an Occupational Specialist for College America’s design department, evaluating programs for state accreditation.

    Multi-disciplinary Graphic Designer

    With strengths in both print and digital media, Grace is outstanding at understanding the needs of both the project and client. Her detailed approach to design allows her to manage complete projects all the way from start to the press. Perfectionism is known to wreak havoc in a design studio, but somehow Grace has managed to controlled hers, so you can rest assured your projects are in good hands when you see her name on an email.
