Natalie Burwell - Account Executive
Natalie designed her first commercially-printed pieces while earning her Fine Arts degree at the Columbus College of Art and Design. While attending school, she designed and purchased print for a local paint manufacturing operation. Learning the fundamentals at a retail level, her creative strengths found practical application. “I love seeing an original design printed on paper. I still get excited seeing unique concepts, new designs, original color schemes and complex folds in print. It all grows from, and connects with, my fine arts roots.” From there, she designed and produced large format graphics for a trade show company. That is where she discovered her passion for problem solving and assisting clients with winning solutions. “It’s all about the service. I’m right there with you from the start of the concept through the delivery of the printed piece.” Natalie continues to design printed materials for local non-profits and lends a hand to community fundraising. She also has a passion for landscaping and decorating her 1920’s home, gourmet cooking, photography, hiking, blues music and rediscovering the world through her son’s eyes. She continues to pursue her art, and hopes to someday display her paintings in a gallery.
