Stephanie Garrigus
Director of Media Production

Stephanie 3.jpg

Stephanie has a sketchbook filled with pictures, phrases, and thoughts... basically an ever-growing collection of ideas. Sometimes the pages are relevant to her work; sometimes they're not. But Stephanie is quick to point out that every one of them makes her a better problem solver.

"I feel that Moey is an environment where creative people not only hone their technical skills and expect to be challenged, but stretch their muscles in more unpredictable ways," she says.

Stephanie doesn't take the idea of client partnership lightly. She emphasizes it just as strongly as she reveres artistic expression. She relates, "I heard a great definition of the difference between design and art: 'Design answers someone else's questions, art answer your own.' We always make sure we're answering the clients' questions, as well as our own. That's my measure of any project's success."

Before her move to Moey Inc., Stephanie served as Director of Broadcast Media with Surdell & Partners Advertising Agency in California. While there, she developed and produced seasonal television and radio commercial campaigns for Gottschalks department stores. She was able to raise the creative bar by delivering creative solutions to cost prohibitive ideas and budgets. Her work has been recognized with both Telly and Addy awards.

Stephanie received a BFA in Motion Picture and Television studies from Academy of Art University, San Francisco.
