Candace enjoys—and we mean enjoys in the sense of “derives joy from”—pretty much everything that a design creative at a food marketing agency should: gathering data, reading, considering the theory of type and experimenting with typography, learning the food marketing industry, studying culture for design inspiration, and playing with color.
Given the way that she approaches life—with a curious, open mind—it’s no surprise that she graduated top of class. And it’s no surprise that she loves the creative world and its endless opportunities for discovery. Her primary role at MarketPlace is Graphic Designer, though we have no doubt that her curiosity and drive will lead her into other projects and roles in short order.
As if she couldn’t fit into MarketPlace better, Candace previously worked with a local not-for-profit design agency and loves using her talents and skills philanthropically. Candace is a good person. We’re grateful to have her on the team.
Candace enjoys long walks on the park trails; long rides on the bike trails; medium camping excursions; medium movies; short swims; and all lengths of books, which she enjoys reading with her older daughter.
A true family woman, she watches football because her husband does, but she legitimately loves Cardinals baseball. On an entirely unrelated note, she loves ska and punk. No one at MarketPlace would have guessed that.
Candace used to swing dance. The culture of 30s and 40s Americana and most things vintage compel her. For instance, vintage family (okay, fine, “genealogy”) fascinates her, to the point that she traced her lineage to the 1600s.
She recycles and composts everything (excepting her design work). Her goal, having learned the relatively important art of not killing plants, is to grow a victory garden so that she can cook and her family can eat healthier.
