TANYA SHAW JEFFREY
Art Direction + Design
Tanya Jeffrey is a 37-year-old mother of two and wife of one. She fancies herself an artist, designer and community activist, and enjoys translating art, design and activism into meaningful work.
At Ginseng, Tanya’s clients include local fixtures like KRCC 91.5 FM and the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. She has created complete brand identities for music festivals, book publishers and nonprofits, and also art-directs Springs magazine.
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.
Tanya’s current volunteer work includes participating in the AAF and AIGA; assisting the graphic design program at Pikes Peak Community College; and serving on the MeadowGrass Music Festival steering committee. She is also evaluating College America’s design programs for state accreditation.
Multi-disciplinary Graphic Designer
Ginseng Creative is excited to introduce our new graphic designer, Grace McConnell. With strengths in both print and digital media, Grace is outstanding at understanding the needs of both the project and client. Her detailed oriented approach to design allows her to manage complete projects all the way to the press.
Driven by a passion for good design and cold brew coffee, Grace works at a blazing fast pace making sure your projects are always on time. Her more recent experience in ad agency settings kept her production skills and sense of humor sharp. When Grace is forced to take a day off, she enjoys hanging out with her spouse, daughter and cat. Grace is that person we all know who loves her cat way too much. She also loves heat embossing, so she’s in.
