I'm Marquel Patton (formerly Plavan), a photographer and graphic designer based in Charlottesville, Virginia. I've always felt that a vital part of the creative process is getting to know your client/consultant, therefore building a positive working relationship. I'm excited to get to know you once we start working together! Here's a little bit about me to get the ball rolling.
I'm originally from Sacramento, California, and I moved to Dallas for school in 2015. It was there that I met my husband, received a degree in English, and turned my passion for photography into a part-time job and eventual profession. I've been an artist as long as I can remember, so graphic design was a natural career progression for me. I can't wait to create something exciting with you!
my favorite color
I'm obsessed with reading thriller novels
I started dating my husband during our semester abroad in Rome
the movie Lady Bird is based off of my high school (my only claim to fame).
Everyone has a different style of working, and I want to create a working relationship that is right for you.
The first steps of the creative process will be getting to know one another and assessing exactly what you're looking for — from there, we can decide how that will look! The scope of the project, the length, how much or how little you want, how much you want to be involved, or if you'd rather delegate. Whatever works best for you works best for me!
