Hi! This is Debbie. I live and work in Talkeetna, Alaska. With close to 25 years of graphic design experience — self-employed, in advertising agencies, and as an in-house art director for Alaska Geographic, a non-profit organization supporting Alaska’s public lands — I am now on a new journey with a focus on branding, illustrative design, book design, custom product designs, and marketing ideas. Silt & Sticks is inherently dynamic and playful, depositing ideas to your business or project, and providing you with visuals that stick. READ MORE
Logos, posters, brochures, annual reports, pins...
everything printed needs a design.
I am here to listen to my clients' needs,
visualize ideas, and convey a message.
Specializing in the design of Alaska-themed books: interpretive, children’s books, coffee table photo books.
I create clean and strong graphics for pins, patches, decals, signs, and book illustrations.
Visuals that stick! — Creating a good logo is to tell a story. As a designer, I craft a narrative. I consider the flow of my idea, and how my client’s audience will interpret it. I listen to my clients and understand their needs, so that I can create a logo that will convey an emotion, a feeling. That makes communication a successful exchange with the final audience.
With the formation of Silt & Sticks, the time has come to explore some side channels. One of them is to design Alaska-themed souvenirs: Custom pins and patches, artwork for fashionable t-shirts, and of course Alaska books. I am here to help clients visualize their ideas, and deposit some of mine as well.
