I draw, I love my family and my giant chessie, I adventure, I hang out, I work out; all those and more. Raised in IL, MA and settled in NH, currently I live by the shores of Pawtuckaway lake. Design Team lead for Anthem Inc., I am Mandie Desroches and — with just about 20 years experience as an Art Director/Senior Designer and branding aficionado — creating something meaningful, entertaining, useful and beautiful is my specialty.

My career has been spent pushing myself to try new things and to be expressive in a variety of media. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some pretty cool brands like, Raytheon, Pegasystems, Anthem BCBS, Sheds USA, New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility (NHBSR), Scansoft (Xerox subsidiary), McAfee; to name a few.

Based in “The Granite State” (a/k/a New Hampshire) — with two wonderful kids, a loving husband and our chessie — I’m tucked away among the tree covered streets (or snow covered) and sun sparkled waters of Pawtuckaway lake.

Some of my specialties include:
– Creative direction
– Visual design
– User experience and interaction design
– Motion graphic design
– Video editing
– Logo/icon design
– Infographic creation
– Illustration
– Process innovation
– Team development
