Sunny Given, Marketing Designer

Sunny Given brings 30+ years of experience in graphic design, specifically print media, to Sundance Media & Design. By the time Sunny was in junior high, she knew her future was a career in art. She was always drawing something, from copying the styles in Marvel Comic Books and MAD magazine for homecoming poster contests (her class won every year) to redrawing animal illustrations from books and magazines. Her ambition was to design album covers along the lines of Roger Dean's work for the band Yes. But during her time at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, her focus shifted to 
graphic design and typography, more specifically advertising design. She returned to her home state of West Virginia to design ads at Charleston Newspapers. Seven years later, the company promoted Sunny to Creative Services Director, and she kept that position until she moved to Marlinton, West Virginia, in 2000 to accept a position in advertising sales and design at The Pocahontas Times. She also has experience in catalog design, logo creation, and marketing design. Sunny lives near Clover 
Lick, West Virginia, with her husband, David, six horses, four cats, and two dogs. When she's not riding or showing her horses, she enjoys playing racquetball, piano, and reading. She has yet to design a single album or CD cover.​
