Candace Bailey, Graphic Production Manager
Candace is our eclectic Graphic Production Manager, hailing from southern West Virginia (you can take the girl out of the hills, but you can’t take the hills out of the girl). She’s always been interested in art. Her first permanent installations where completed at the age of two when, armed with a piece of chalk, she doodled on the undersides of most of her parent’s furniture. To this day, if you ask her mother nicely she’ll gladly show you (interesting how it originally
brought punishment, now it’s cute- the original “artist suffering for their craft”).
Candace began to learn about graphic design early on during her high school days. She actually did freelance work before going to college. In the summer of 2005 Candace began a design internship for a military communications contractor in Duluth, GA and was offered a full-time position by the end of summer. She juggled work and school until her permanent move into the Atlanta area in 2006, and vowed to stay. Her decision was driven mostly by the fact that her hometown’s idea of entertainment was a small movie theater and a bowling alley, before they roll the sidewalks up at 9:00PM. She enjoys having many more entertainment options, and opportunities to be exposed to different cultures and experiences. You can often find her attending events such as the Georgia Renaissance Festival and Dragon Con. With her varied experiences in art, design, and printing, she brings an interesting mix of talents to the table.
Candace puts great effort into meeting our customer’s needs, always producing high quality work, managing priorities, inventory, and the equipment. She is very personable, and enjoys working with clients to meet and exceed their visions for their graphics needs.
Motto: Good things only come to people who work for them.
