Business Spotlight: Reba Renee Design Studio
During our teenage and young adult years, many of us struggle with feeling different from our peers and long to find our place in the world. For Reba (of Reba Renee Design Studio), being a student in duPont Manual’s Visual Art Magnet only compounded these feelings. While there, Reba found it difficult to find her voice as an artist and struggled with realism. Her passion wasn’t in realistically depicting subjects. She preferred the use of color and bold design. It wasn’t until working a part-time job at Café Press in college that Reba found what she was looking for.
While there, she was introduced to the world of graphic design. As far as careers go, it was love at first site. Once Reba completed all of her college prerequisites, she shifted her focus to graphic design. She began with courses on programs like Illustrator and Photoshop, cementing her love for graphic design.
After graduating, Reba landed a job working for an advertising agency as a graphic designer, doing some freelance work on the side. She eventually moved onto another firm before coming to conclusion that she needed to start her own business. Agency life was too rigid, restricting, and ultimately hindered her productivity, preventing Reba from growing her career the way she wanted. After a few years, Reba saved up enough money to go out on her own. Her bright, bold, and playful designs have garnered her clients like Feeder Supply, who have used her designs for their private Incredipet label.
