Who We Are
CHIMERA COLLECTIVE began as a co-adventure of two graphic designers who wanted to help businesses and non-profits in their community. They noticed that having a full-time designer on staff or hiring a large design agency was often out of reach for most small businesses and they wanted to do something to change that. They started Chimera Co. with the hope that their clients would get the personal service and great design they deserved at a price that they could afford. With over a decade of experience working with small businesses, non-profits, print publications, and corporate giants, they know what it takes to make their clients stand out. Equipped with a collaborative mindset, out-of-the-box thinking, and a lot of determination, they’re prepared for any challenge that comes their way.
A steward of personality assessments, Caryn loves to understand what makes people tick. This ability to identify with people drives her desire to design because each design should perfectly portray the client it's created for. She loves to doodle and incorporate illustrations into her design whenever possible. When she’s not working, you can usually find her in the kitchen trying new recipes, reading too far into obscure topics, or secretly teaching her two year-old son to love musical theatre behind her husband’s back.
