June Zinn Hobby
Graphic Designer | Art Director | Artist
As a small child, I drew pictures on rocks, walls, and furniture. By 6 I was building shoebox Barbie houses and by 12 was designing my own clothes, and I’ve continued making and designing things ever since. I was born in London and moved a lot while growing up in a military family, with two long stays in Puerto Rico. Four years ago, my husband and I relocated with our three cats to Phoenix, Arizona, where, after living near the beaches of South Florida and in the mountains of Western North Carolina, we are taking in the beauty of the desert.
After completing an Associate’s degree in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, I’ve gained great experience working in advertising agencies, design firms, and in-house agencies, and I have worn a lot of hats, from graphic designer and art director to marketing strategist, copy editor, image archivist, media planner, and MAC IT geek.
From my experiences, I’ve learned that the best creative results come from sound research, understanding the audience and the business objectives. As a detail-oriented designer, I enjoy producing as much as ideation. I work well independently and with teams, vendors, and clients to seek artful and meaningful solutions.
I love developing everything design, from websites to corporate identity and collateral, from package designs to trade show components & in-store displays, and from image editing to digital campaigns. Because I have been a technologist since the early days of the ‘interweb’, I stay engaged and informed on trends and ever-changing methods, and continue to adapt. Bring it!
