Lorayne McGovernHello and Welcome! My name is Lorayne McGovern, and I’d love to work with you.

Fascinated with color, art and design since I was a young child, it was only natural that my field of work be in the arts. My first job, while still in high school, was with an ad agency in Guam. There I  learned the basics of layout and design, writing copy and fashion illustration. It hooked me, and I knew this was my calling.

In the late 70’s and early 80’s I worked as a graphic designer for small to large print shops in South Florida, then landed a job as creative director of three magazines published in Yuma, AZ.  A year after moving to Yuma I opened my first graphic design business.

I relocated to Colorado Springs in 1992 and opened a new design studio which also offered custom screen printing. I found my niche in the scuba diving industry, designing marketing material and t-shirts for dive shops, resorts and whole sellers of dive travel around the country and the South Pacific.

I sold my screen printing business in 2003 to pursue a new passion, professional faux painting! This was so much fun! Painting on walls, floors, furniture and just about anything else that didn’t move, all the while still doing graphic design on the side.

I now work full time again as a graphic designer, my first love, designing marketing material and graphics for businesses, both locally and nationally, but still dabble in the world of faux painting and making art! And, I have expanded to add promotional products to help market your business and keep you name in front of all your clients!

I hope you enjoy visiting my website and browsing through my portfolio. Let me know if I can help you and your business build a great portfolio of marketing materials!

Although I am highly proficient in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and WordPress, I confess I don’t know everything about each one. Programs change, updates happen, new features are added, and as a result I am constantly learning new things and techniques in each program!
