Margaret McCarthy Designer

I have been working as a visual designer and marketing specialist in Chicago and the surrounding area for nearly 8 years. I support businesses large and small by developing strong brands and creating impactful marketing pieces for both print and web media. I particularly enjoy working with start-up businesses and nonprofits, creating the visual platform  for a creative and interactive experience that will thrive with your target audience. My background and continuing work in studio art enhances my design aesthetic for a look that is classically appealing with a contemporary twist. I appreciate each project that comes to me as an opportunity to create something beautiful that communicates well in an ever-changing market.

  • Margaret is a true pro! From our logo, templates, business cards, to overall branding Margaret’s eye for detail, innovation, and strategy was greatly appreciated. Her process and diligence was greatly valued as we continue to work with her and recommend her highly to everyone looking to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

    As a Chicago startup firm, we knew the moment prospects saw our webpage, received my business card, or experienced of of our templates, that process would be a homerun, through Margaret’s beautiful work.
