Loebig Ink Team Member: Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez met Loebig Ink founder Brian Loebig through a freelancer website named Elance (now Upwork) eight years ago. Brian wanted Angela’s graphic design expertise for his newly growing business. Soon, Angela became one of the first members Brian took onto his team for Loebig Ink. With her outstanding creativity and visual perspective, Angela is adding a tremendous amount of value and experience to Loebig Ink’s portfolio. She has grown into the Lead Wix Developer responsible for Web Design Project Management, Logo Design, Graphic Design, Social Media Management, as is currently getting into her first SEO projects.
Angela grew up in Tacoma, Washington and is currently living in Puyallup, Washington. Before Angela met Brian, she was a housekeeper in hotels for 13 years. After having her first child at a young age, Angela decided to start school again. With a full-time job, two children, and finishing school, she has shown marvelous strength through hard work and unselfishness. She graduated as a graphic designer from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2010. As a creative graphic designer, Angela is professionally trained and competent in a wide range of design software and equipment, including Adobe Creative Suite.
Though she lives many miles away on the other side of the US from Loebig Ink’s headquarters, Angela has the feeling of belonging to a strong team. Now as an experienced Web Developer, she is at the point in her career where she enjoys teaching new team members for Loebig Ink. Learning from Brian has made Angela realize that she wants to give back with the knowledge she has gained. Angela admires that Brian has the devotion to help make other people knowledgeable in specific areas and to push them toward growth so they can ultimately advance and expand their horizons. “Brian helps everyone recognize that they are much more capable of growing than they think they are,” she says.
Out of all that she does professionally, putting her creativity into designing custom logos has been Angela’s passion. For her, it’s all about creating impactful visual communications that builds brand identity and engages customers. But favorite project was having the chance to create her daughter’s school’s official logo. One of the most rewarding things about it is that she gets to see it every single day.
Angela Martinez loves living with her family of four in Washington State. Her husband and her two daughters, who are nine and fifteen, enjoy hiking around the beautiful mountains. Angela loves drawing cartoons, going to her favorite local coffee shop, and she used to Kickbox for many years. She is competitive, easy-going, visual, and a giving person. She describes herself as a West Coast girl who has never been far away. In the future, she would like to take more international trips. She has her eye on Italy. A long-term goal is to move into her own little house at the bottom of Utah after her daughters graduate from high school.
