Say Hello to Leslie!

Published: August 20, 2019

Sometimes a thing just works.

This summer we invited three interns to join us, and while we loved them all and wanted to keep them, we didn’t have permanent spots for everyone to fill. Leslie Latimer, however, filled our full-time graphic designer spot, and she’s been working hard ever since settling in to her role.

Leslie grew up in Waterman, IL, right in our own backyard. She went to Indian Creek High School before attending Columbia College in Chicago, where she got a degree in studio art. She then went on to NIU, where she earned a degree in visual communications (graphic design, for those of us not up on the lingo).

When she’s not working her magic here, you can find her delivering stellar customer service and artistic work for Blumen Gardens. Outside of work, she likes to bake, take in the local flavor on her bike, and tend to her home jungle.

Before taking on her position at OC, Leslie served as an intern for the graphic design department at NIU.

“The real world experience I’ve gotten in my first two months here has taught me so much, and I’m excited for what the future holds,” says Leslie.

Creative Director and President Brian Oster adds, “Her summer designs were extraordinary, and she made the choice an easy one. Leslie has already accomplished branding projects and national magazine ads for our clients in the few months she has been on board. I can’t wait to unleash more of her creative potential.”

We’re so glad to have her as part of the OC Creative team, and we hope you’re as excited to work with her as we are!
