Good marketing is only as good as its ability to get someone to stop scrolling and pay attention.
In our business, effective visuals are that “stop sign” to get folks to read and consider your content, especially in the whirlwind social-media environment.
We are pleased to add Carissa Wesson to our creative team to help design those stop-sign moments.
A native of Adrian, Michigan who now lives in Ann Arbor, Carissa has quite the commute to Troy and back. Not unlike many others at SSDM, she enjoys listening to True Crime podcasts. (Why is it that our people are so enamored with no-good-niks?) 😉
Graduating from Eastern Michigan University in 2014 with a degree in graphic design and another in marketing, Carissa interned for a family-owned travel agency in Southfield, managing its social-media inventory and designing posts to support the agency’s trade-show involvement. She especially enjoyed the multi-lingual staff and the multi-cultural environment.
Designing for another Michigan-based company – Sun Communities – Carissa thrived on the challenges of full campaign design, continuing to hone her skills. She added reputation management to her social media arsenal as digital marketing specialist at MotorCity Casino Hotel.
A very active committee member of the Detroit chapter of Together in Digital, Carissa also is a volunteer with the Power of Girlhood in Detroit, helping young women tap into their power to create community, discover their value and voice, find career paths and change the world!
Please join us in welcoming Carissa to the SSDM team.
