MEET THE DESIGNER
My name is Carissa Casiello, and I have loved art for as long as I can remember. I love to draw, design and create new things. I find inspiration in many aspects of my life, and enjoy the challenge to create designs that are inspired by my surroundings.
In addition to graphic arts and illustration, I love charcoal, graphite drawing and multi-medium painting. There is nothing quite like taking time to truly work with your hands on something, watching and creating it to its final form. Some of the work I have done in these mediums are also in my portfolio - feel free to check them out!
I would be remiss to leave out that since art comes in so many forms, one of my other passions is playing my viola. I have been playing the viola since I was little, and always wanted it to be a long term part of my life. I have been very lucky to find a local symphony to play in, and for a great group of people to surround myself with. Just in case you were wondering, my viola's name is Luciano.
I started working in design in 2003, where I worked along side a fashion designer doing presentation layouts for her garment designs. I always enjoyed working on them, and didn't realize my true passion until more recently.
In 2007, I took a job in accounting, and not very long after, in 2010, I was offered the opportunity to join the marketing team, which I felt was a much more interesting and exciting facet of the business. Shortly after taking the opportunity in my new marketing position, I decided to start working on graphic design. There was a need to create relevant, and original design so I presented my ideas and graphics, and quickly became the sole designer at the company.
I spent a significant portion of my job creating images and layouts for their website, marketing collateral, power-point & keynote presentations and brand designs.
In early 2015, I left my marketing position to fully dedicate myself to my own goals and my company. I definitely loved what I did, but wanted to take a leap of faith and take a chance on me; I haven't looked back since!
I truly love illustration & design, it is a passion. I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to now do what I love, for my customers and also for myself. Creating original artwork is one of my absolute favorite things.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know the VISIVAE story. I hope to further connect with you to create something that will be both original and relevant to you!
