Hi! My name is steph stump.

I'm a graphic designer and a printmaker based in Chicago, Illinois.

I have an eye for detail, a love of typography, and know the print process like the back of my hand. I work on all kinds of design projects: logos, branding and identity, print ads, labels, apparel, and more. I'm also comfortable in the world of RGB and take on the occasional web project. 

In addition to freelancing, I work as a senior designer at a marketing services company. I conceptualize, design and execute promotional programs and marketing materials, both print and digital, primarily for the alcoholic beverage industry. Clients include Tito's Handmade Vodka, Bacardi (including Grey Goose, Bombay Sapphire, Dewar's, and Cazadores), Deep Eddy Vodka, as well as smaller local brands. 

I print things myself too, and worked professionally as a letterpress printer for 4 years. Mostly coasters, greeting cards, invitations, business cards, art prints and posters. If you're unfamiliar with letterpress (or just like to geek out about it), check out this video featuring yours truly to view the process.

When I'm not designing or printing, you might find me in a far-flung part of the globe, traipsing through backcountry trails, practicing hand lettering, baking pies, homebrewing, or trying very hard to learn the banjo. My blood type is B+, and it's also my motto.

If you would like to get in touch about a project or just to say hello, please contact me. You can check out my CV here or on LinkedIn.  Follow me on Instagram here for art & design, or here for pretty pictures. Like my Facebook page, and follow me on Dribbble.

Enjoy my website until it stops being fun. Thanks for visiting!
