Hartley comes to the Fraternity with years of knowledge in design, publishing, and printing. Upon graduating with her degree in Graphic Design from the International Business College (Indianapolis, IN) in 1995, she worked for Howard W. Sams Publishing, creating comprehensive book covers for several years (including a number of projects focusing on the career of Brett Favre). She later moved to the Greenspun Media Group in Las Vegas, Nevada where she worked on the layout and design of the Las Vegas Weekly. Soon after, she took on a role with a printing company and coordinated a number of design projects. Later, her career brought her back to Indianapolis where she applied her skills at Old National Insurance, COS Xerox, and as a freelance designer. We are fortunate to be bringing her wealth of knowledge and experience to the team.
"I'm excited to be joining Phi Kappa Psi and helping advance the goal of a great organization," said Hartley. "This will surely present a new and unique opportunity to create innovative designs."
Her responsibilities in the role will include day-to-day graphic design needs, developing various digital campaigns, involvement in the creation of publications (i.e. The Shield and The Manual of Phi Kappa Psi), oversight of brand strategy, development of Strategic Growth materials, and video development. Her diverse skillset will allow her to make an impact in many areas of the organization.
"Debra not only brings valuable experience to our team, but also possesses a level of enthusiasm you rarely see. Her contributions will be valuable helping us achieve our long-term goals," said Senior Director of Communications, Kyle Hickman.
Debra's first day in the office will be Wednesday, January 20, 2016. You can email her at DCH@phikappapsi.com.
