Senior Art Director at Nickelodeon
In 2008, after stints at American Greetings and international advertising agency Moxie Sozo, Stefanie moved to New York City and got a job as an animator and designer for the Nickelodeon On-Air team. At Nick, she created the TV interstitials and promotional packaging for the network. In 2012 she became an Art Director of the department and helped lead projects for the team. In 2016 she joined Nickelodeon's newly growing social media team in efforts to ramp up their digital and social platforms.
She was quickly promoted to Senior Art Director of Nickelodeon Social, which encompasses all of the social media accounts for our network such as Nickelodeon, SpongeBob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teen Nick, The Splat and Nickelodeon's Viacom Digital Studios; an in-house production team that generates a growing network of digital series. Projects range from graphic design, film, photography, animation, stop-motion, and sometimes making slime.
“My experience at KCAI inspired me to use art and design for both personal expression and communication and problem-solving.”
