I started McSwain Design in 2007 after my son was born. I am a Charlotte native and now live in Mount Holly, North Carolina. My interest in design began early with a huge fascination for paper and pens. I furthered this interest by taking art classes in high school, and despite the assumption I would be a smarty pants doctor, honed my skills in art school at UNC Charlotte. I now have over 16 years experience in design and art direction, working at marketing communications/advertising agencies, and now for myself. When I'm not working on design and art direction projects, you can find me outside – playing with my family, training for my next 5K race, or making things grow in my garden.
