RESUME

Carolyn Gargano

CREATIVE DIRECTOR | ART

Hello, and thanks for clicking by.
You'll find I'm particularly drawn to projects that make us feel better.
Welcoming a smile, a personal connection, and at times providing
the clarity we count on to make essential choices. And throughout it all,
in the back of my mind is constant improvement.

Improvement not just about making ideas stronger, but doing something

for the genuine good of people and our conceptual process.
