About this Speaker
From corporate employee to full-time entrepreneur, Dana’s career has evolved from being an in-house print designer to creative agency founder, branding and website strategist, speaker and teacher.
After undergrad, Dana designed marketing pieces for SunTrust and Wells Fargo, and package design for home storage items sold in major retail stores including Walmart and Target. This experience shaped her understanding of brand design consistency and sparked the desire to offer her knowledge to passionate business owners. With love for clean design and the belief that everyone has a story to tell, Dana founded Cheers Creative, a Memphis-based agency that builds award-winning brand visuals and websites for creative professionals, industry leaders, and art platforms.
Using the workbook that she developed called the Brand Journal, Dana teaches branding and design workshops in schools including Memphis College of Art and Memphis Grizzlies Preparatory Charter School.
Since the opening of Cheers in 2012, Dana has developed an international client roster. Her writings, design work and talks about branding, web design, tech, and entrepreneurship have been featured and referenced in Forbes, Essence, Canada Learning Code, Net Magazine, and more.
Dana gained endorsement from the creators of X, which is one of the most powerful and fastest-selling WordPress website themes on the market today. She has built X Theme website templates that help over 170,000 X Theme customers create beautiful websites. Dana’s web design work is also featured on various WordPress website showcases around the web.
Dana received a BFA with a concentration in Graphic Design from the University of Memphis. When she’s not working or contributing to the Memphis arts scene, Dana mentors underserved middle-school age girls about entrepreneurship through the non-profit organization Envision Lead Grow, and spends time with her husband and children.
