Debra’s reputation for creating eye-catching visuals in all media began as an art director in Sun Microsystems’ (now Oracle) corporate communications department. Her skills have expanded to include the design of countless deliverables; everything from logo, collateral, web, to all-encompassing event design. Debra was instrumental in early groundbreaking website design, as the web began to change from content only to including creative design. Having a strong desire to build on her web graphics experience, Debra joined Interse Corporation, a start-up web design company, which became a leading developer of web analysis software. After contributing to the success of this Sunnyvale startup, which was purchased by Microsoft and relocated to Washington, Debra chose to stay in her hometown of Santa Clara, Silicon Valley, CA, and joined the FineLine team.
Debra has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Graphic Design from San Jose State University and brings many years of design experience to FineLine Graphics & Design. Over the years Debra has won many design awards, including “Above and Beyond Award” from Cisco Systems, the Western Art Directors’ “Design Excellence” award, Sun Microsystems’ “Valued Contributor” and “Outstanding Accomplishment & Contribution” awards.
When she isn’t designing, Debra lets her hair down and rides the open road along with her husband on her Harley. She also enjoys working out daily, juicing veggies, and time outdoors – especially on the water.
