Communications Designer

Im Angela Warnera writer, graphic designer, content curator, social media strategist and digital marketer. I craft messages for distinct audiences in ways that inspire, engage, inform and involve. Im equally experienced and adept at print and digital media, and I enjoy transforming good ideas into tangible assets that create measurable impact. I believe that good communication is an interactive experience, and audiences deserve information thats creative, accessible, understandable, useful, memorable, and beautiful. My passion is improving that experience for my clients and their audiences through outstanding writing and design.

When SAIS wanted to pursue new opportunities to add value to membership, I designed an optimized YouTube channel to encourage networking and skill-sharing among members while promoting SAIS events. Branding the channel as SAIStalks: Independent Ideas, the channel was seeded with member interviews where veteran school administrators shared success stories, favorite career moments and best practices. These interview videoscollected at a conference, filmed entirely on iPads and produced in-housewere soon expanded to include presentations, slide decks, virtual book club discussions and annual reports. The channel was launched exclusively through social media/digital newsletters to a core audience of approximately 2,800 potential viewers. Within 9 months, SAIStalks received more than 3,400 video views, showing widespread audience engagement and viewer retention. Member survey responses indicated that users saw the channel as a valuable professional development resource, delivering relevant, usable information in ten minutes or less, 24 hours a day. Video examples: Accreditation Report: Interview/Feedback: : Event Marketing:

In 2007, I wrote a federal grant proposal for a Georgia-based charity working with orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda. The proposal resulted in a multi-year partnership with USAID that fed 10,510 children and provided life-saving medication and malaria intervention. Nearly five years after completing the grant proposal, I was called in again to help share the results. This annual report showcases the successes of the program and was the final product of a complete logo redesign and rebrand, data analysis, information architecture, style guideline development, copywriting and publication design.
