STORY - GRAPHIC DESIGN COMPANY - design loft, inc.
After graduating Northern Illinois University in 2000, with a
major in Visual Communications, Lindsay Reams worked for an advertising
firm in Glen Ellyn, IL where she gained a lot of experience both
artistically and interacting with her graphic design clients.
She enjoyed her time there and the people she worked with, but
her dream was always to start her own business, once she was ready
to start a family.
After getting married in August 2003, this dream was starting
to be realized. It was now or never — so Lindsay fulfilled
her dream in September of 2004, and design loft, inc.
opened its’ doors.
Before having her first son in August of 2005, Lindsay was able
to build up her clientele base and establish a work from home
schedule that showed her determination and commitment to her new
business. She was not only a freelancer - this was her company
and it was going to succeed and there would be a balance of home
life and work that her clients would come to appreciate. Lindsay's
organizational skills and fast turnaround times that she had learned
to establish early on are in integral part of her business.
That same year - September of 2004, Lindsay’s dad, Jim
Rosenow had retired from a career in Radiation Protection at a
Nuclear Power Plant. Always a guy that could take on anything
and usually did, recognized the need for a programmer and volunteered
to learn how to code websites. So the father/daughter duo took
on another relationship - that of a working one. Jim went through
the training to become a website programmer and has since developed
his skills further into a Search Engine Optimization specialist.
Lindsay and Jim love working together and their flexible schedule
allows them time to communicate with each other - that other firms
do not always have. It’s been a great run - and we look
forward to adding new clients to our long list of clients we have
worked with since 2004. Lindsay now has 3 boys and is still loving
the balance she has created for herself and her family. That is
what inspires us - Family, Friendships and Passion. What inspires
