Visible Logic is owned by Emily Brackett who leads the team.
Education: Emily has a BA from Carleton College and a BFA in Graphic Design from The Massachusetts College of Art. This combination of liberal arts foundation plus graphic design education creates a skill set unique in the industry. Good graphic design is ultimately about communication. Having the “word” skills to complement the “visual” talent allows Emily to create materials that truly work as demanded—whether to inform, entertain or persuade.
Previous Experience: Before opening Visible Logic, Emily worked at several successful studios in the Chicago & Boston area. At these full-service studios she completed a broad range of design work, including B-to-B marketing collateral, annual reports and identity projects. Early in her career Emily worked in print production and as a print buyer in the book publishing industry. This foundation in print management allows her to troubleshoot the production side of projects.
DeAnne joined Visible Logic in February 2006. She has lived in Maine almost her whole life and is a graduate of the Maine College of Art where she earned her BFA in Graphic Design. Trained first as a designer, DeAnne then learned to to develop for the web and has been creating custom WordPress themes for clients since 2010. Being a designer and a developer is beneficial because both skills are needed when creating designs and deciding how they will be built. DeAnne works with clients from the start of the design, builds a custom branded theme, then teaches clients how to use WordPress to maintain and manage their WordPress-based web presence. DeAnne works on both print and web-based design, and assists in all types of projects in the studio.
Sarah started at Visible Logic in September 2010. She has a BS from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and has lived in Maine since 1999. Sarah does a little bit of everything in the office, and especially enjoys writing, doing research, and being a part of the website development process.
Devon is the newest member of the Visible Logic staff. She grew up in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Keene State College in 2012. In addition to branding, web and print projects, Devon is also interested in video work and photography. Like Emily, she has a knack for working on the text-based message alongside the visuals to improve both.
