Grace Hersey here! I’m a creative located in Chicago with an eye for design and drive for results. I majored in Communication Arts with a certificate in Digital Studies from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. My appreciation for different visual media forms lead me to full-service agency, Bullseye Media after graduation. I began as an Account Manager and shortly after assumed the role of Creative Director.

I developed creative campaigns, wrote strategic marketing plans, and oversaw all content creation. By directly managing the production, graphic design, web, and animation teams, I honed my leadership and technical skills. I also served as the Key Social Media Manager and Copywriter for larger accounts. Working for a small startup agency, I had to wear many hats which allowed me to experience the many facets of marketing, advertising, and content creation.

In 2019, I launched my freelance brand, “g.hoot” and began collaborating with local designers to develop curated content. My collaborations serve as a way to expand a brand’s messaging beyond their own imagery. From my agency experience, I’ve learned how valuable an outside view of a brand can be. By providing a fresh set of eyes, I am able to provide unique concepts to tell brand stories. My partnerships have involved creative direction, styling, photography, copywriting, and email marketing.

I’m currently working on some exciting projects and accepting inquiries.
