Specialist: Dana is the lead graphic designer and art director for our G2C clients. Her specialty is working with healthcare providers, government agencies and nonprofits on print ads, web design, digital ads, logos, books, manuals, annual reports, legislative communication and special event materials. Awards for the work she has produced line the walls and the shelves of the agency.
Dana specializes in: Listening. Dana Rogers (or DR as she is known in the agency) should have been a United States ambassador. She is probably better than anyone in the agency at listening to a client’s needs and asking all the right questions. This ability allows her to translate the customer’s program concepts and goals into campaign materials that motivate action and behavioral change.
Specializing in outreach and education: 25 years
Other specialties: DR is the longest tenured employee at the agency outside of the founders. She is a fine artist and creator of extraordinary custom jewelry. She reads about 55 books a week (maybe fewer, but every time we see her, she’s reading a new book), loves her Nook, is a fabulous dog mom and has a family of extremely talented artists. She also holds the official title of “Nicest Person in the Advertising Business.”
