Director of Communications
Diane founded The Concept Design Group in 2003 with Denise Parkhill as a Design/Layout Director. Her title and responsibility soon included all Communications, incorporating client newsletters, email campaigns, and online presence. The company was renamed TCDG Studios to better represent an expanded brand.
“The industry has changed over the past years and we had to change with it. For example, now a website is not a luxury but a necessity and mobile application is expected. Print is still important but more clients are moving to everything digital.”
Formerly, the Director of Alumni Affairs and Development Coordinator at several prestigious private schools in Central Florida, Diane was responsible for all marketing and development collateral, public announcements and press releases, schools' newsletters and magazines, and assisted in the implementation of their initial web presence.
Diane designed and disseminated all student recruiting materials, and served as event coordinator for all major alumni and donor campaigns and related special events.
It was through these assignments that she discovered the joy of working with clients and various stakeholders in reaching their goals through the various forms of visual media.
Diane loves to dance, read, and do puzzles of any kind, especially the jigsaw variety.
