About Caren

Hi, I’m Caren Bordowitz, a graphic design professional. I grew up on the shore in New Jersey, moved to New York and studied graphic design at the School of Visual Arts, NYC. I worked in New York and New Jersey doing magazines, catalogs, ads, packaging, annual reports, and all other kinds of design work for many years. Eight years ago, I moved to Illinois and worked in the University Relations department of Western Illinois University,  designing a variety of fund-raising and recruiting brochures, booklets, postcards, ads, and billboards. My freelance design work includes program booklets and banners for event planning.

I have three wonderful sons, two cats and a dog. My hobbies are stain glass making, quilting, wood working, travel, and growing a vegetable garden.
