I am Judith Mara, but most people call me Jude. After 25 years of working as a big ad agency creative director, I started a smaller agency 12 years ago with a talented marketing partner. We still work together, however I started Mara Graphics five years ago to serve local clients. With intimate knowledge of a area, your marketing will be more tailored to your audience.
I studied design at The College For Creative Studies and business the University of Detroit. Next thing I knew, I was working for an advertising agency.
I've always loved graphic design and the written word. However, in the early ‘90s, I also fell in love with computers and everything web-related. I've been designing for the web (and printed materials) ever since. My passion for design has only increased with time. So, I guarantee that every minute I spend on your project will be saturated with my knowledge, experience, design sense and—just as importantly—up-to-date technology.
I have a strong commitment for helping small, local businesses through exceptional digital work and strong graphic design. I never do impersonal, cookie-cutter work just to make a buck. I would rather get paid a little less if it means you’ll succeed.
