Upstate NY — The 29 Design Studio team is pleased to welcome Colleen Crill to the agency in a new Director of Client Relationships and Operations role.

Colleen’s 11-year experience in the financial industry will allow the Upstate New York branding and marketing agency to continue to grow while maintaining the same high standard for clients. Colleen comes to 29 Design Studio from a leadership role in business development and commercial services where she managed a portfolio of $220 million.

“Colleen has already started making an impact on the agency by orchestrating client projects and keeping our team working like a well-oiled machine,” Maureen remarked. “Her experience and insight from the financial services industry will be valuable for the health of the agency as we continue to expand.”

Colleen grew up on a dairy farm in Upstate New York and moved to Virginia in 2013. She’s looking forward to the flexibility offered by the agency’s remote-first philosophy and being able to work closely with 29DS clients and team members. 

“I really love seeing the customer relationship from inception to completion and thereafter. I feel like a lot of institutions break it out and silo it into separate people and roles. I’m looking forward to taking the lead on that process for 29 Design Studio and seeing each project develop and grow.”

Colleen joins Founder Maureen Ballatori, Art Directors Courtney Carroway and James Lewis Van-Vorst, and Digital Strategist Jennifer Gyuricska who work collaboratively to create strategic branding, marketing and design for the agency’s clients.
