Granville Fitness has new signage at their studio on Westgate Drive on the east edge of the village. The new building sign is a three dimensional translation of their logo.

Readers' Garden in Granville on the corner of Prospect and Broadway upgraded their window signage with graphics that entice pedestrians to cross the street and a design that is visually cohesive with their existing signage. Shop owner JoAnne Geiger comments, "Jodi can take a concept and run with it, jumping through the necessary hoops to bring the idea to fruition...Jodi did a quality job on my new window signage, going as far as working with the Planning Commission. I didn't have to do a thing except tell her what I wanted."

Aultman Hospital extensive signage project for the hospital's outpatient campuses in the Canton, Ohio area are still in use after over 13 years.

Doing graphic design is about the best job I can imagine. I so thoroughly enjoy collecting my clients' ideas, understanding their goals, doing research, then creating interesting designs that work for them - it's like solving a big visual puzzle. I sometimes have a hard time stopping at the end of the day. I do full service identity design, logo design, image branding, collateral print materials, signage, environmental graphics.
