who am I?

I’m a brand strategist and marketing designer with over 20 years of experience and a passion for marketing.

I started Lidia Varesco Design in 2000 to focus on clients who are making a change—both locally and globally.

I started my design career making homemade music zines as a pre-teen, took a detour into fine art and bookbinding, and finally decided on graphic design after meeting an inspirational professor in art school.

I’m a mom of two, an active blogger, and a passionate supporter of local businesses—especially fellow moms in business.

I’m also an international speaker and present workshops, courses and conference sessions on branding and creative marketing for nonprofits, associations, and other organizations.
