Hey, I’m Devin and I love all things creative.

Grand Rapids born and raised, I’m a proud Michigander. The offspring of a fine artist and a graphic designer, my education in the arts started at home. While other kids were doing normal kid stuff, I was teaching myself photoshop on my mom’s Macintosh II and hanging from canvas clamps on my dad’s next painting.

My formal education began in high school when I earned a certificate in Graphic Communication from Kent Career/Tech Center followed by duel-enrollment at Kendall College of Art & Design. I continued at Kendall for both undergrad and grad school, earned a BFA in Illustration with a minor in Digital Media, was valedictorian of my graduating class, and returned for my MFA in Drawing.

MY CAREER... SO FAR

I have been working professionally as a visual artist—in all its many forms—for nearly 20 years. My range of experience includes graphic design, print design and production, fine art, illustration, hand lettering, chalk board and sign art, portraits, pet portraits, website design, ad campaigns, social media marketing and design, cake decorating, murals, t-shirt graphics, and the list goes on…

I have also been an adjunct professor for the past 9 years at both Kendall College of Art & Design and Grand Valley State University. If there’s one thing I love almost as much as being creative, it’s teaching. What can I say? Sharing is caring! Anytime I learn something new, I can’t wait to tell others about it. While at Kendall, I have not only taught a vast array of drawing and graphic design classes, but I have also created two original courses — “Digital Processes for Artists” and “New Media in Contemporary Drawing.”

DESIGN WITH HEART

Hatch began in 2016 and continues to grow and evolve. While primarily serving local small businesses and clients, I have worked with people all over the U.S. as well. Everything I do under Hatch, I do with passion. I believe in the people I work with and get excited to bring their ideas to life.

This is my calling… let me share it with you.

"Hatch has gone above and beyond to provide us with a branding strategy, as well as the supporting design work, to mirror the passion we put into our product.  They made the process easy for us by driving the bus in the direction we needed for our business and by delivering a completely amazing finished product that matched the vision we thought was only attainable in our wildest dreams."

“We were looking for a t-shirt design for our farm & animal sanctuary. Hatch was suggested to us and we could not be happier! They completely captured the vibe we were looking for, got our design done very quickly, and are priced competitively! We cannot wait to work with them again! Thanks Hatch!”

“When i first decided to completely re-brand I had no idea where to start! Upon meeting Devin for the first time, I was immediately comforted with her professionalism, reliability and obvious talent. She really worked with me in depth to develop a clear vision and ultimately designed the perfect logo and brand for my business!”
