I work seamlessly with technology, marketing, corporate, and creative teams from across the globe.
Print, digital, video - identity, social, email: I know when, and how, to use each medium properly for optimum results.
Cinemagraphs combine video and graphics for truly "wow" effects across social media and websites.
Brands to billboards, I create and produce technical files that work with your printer based on their particular specs.
With a passion for communications, a penchant for perfection, and a work ethic that's borderline OCD, I've served on many creative, technology and marketing teams to create art and commerce for a wide range of clients. Strategizing, leading, mentoring, analyzing, designing, writing, animating, building...all in a day's work.
As a multimedia designer specializing in branding and rebranding initiatives since 2002, I've worked with a number of high profile accounts such as The City of Chicago, Northrop Grumman, Better Homes & Gardens, CareerBuilder, SMS Assist, Prudential Private Capital, Cappex Admissions Advising, Noble Outfitters, and The Corfu Challenge, as well as a handful of respected regional and national ad and interactive agencies, and numerous start-ups. Prior to that time, I held a Senior Communications Consulting position with Aon -- where I specialized in New Media: web technologies, and short-form digital video.
From logo, collateral, out-of-home and corporate identity design to web, social and email design/development and best practices, to video editing and compilation...I keep my hands in all things media.
Interestingly and unlike most designers, I began my career as a copywriter; penning for a bevy of accounts in the quick service food and multi-chain theater verticals. It’s this marcom and advertising background (conceptual and analytical) that I believe sets me apart from other designers who may have the creative chops but lack the big picture know-how to make media that does the heavy lifting.
As both a marketing designer and communications strategist, I’m responsible for a variety of deliverables and budgets targeting multiple audience levels, sales objectives and bottom-line goals.
SPECIAL MENTION: I served as Director/Editor on the documentary “One Mission” which showed in juried competition in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, 2010; winning the Viewer’s Choice award at the Chagrin Falls Film Festival.

"Diane is one of the best designers I've ever worked with - and I've worked with many. She consistently produces high quality output and iterates quickly. Never satisfied with the basic or mundane, Diane always brings a unique, creative bent to each project. And her knowledge of the technical aspects of design makes her instantly credible with product and technology teams."
Tim Brennan, General Manager, Cappex Admissions Advising
"Diane Boichut has been a fantastic addition and was always a pleasure to work with. She was used on the toughest of projects and successfully completed each project on time and with a smile. It was always refreshing to know that she would do whatever it took to get the project done, even if it meant waking up at 3:00am to get an early start to the day. Diane also added to the culture of the company and was a huge favorite. While I have moved along as well, I will always miss Diane. She is always welcome to work with any of my teams."
Brian Rogers, Digital Commerce Leader, New Balance
"I want to personally acknowledge that there would've been no way that we'd have completed this (rebranding & website) project without Diane's expert guidance through the entire process. She's been a true partner to me on every step of the journey. Thank you, Diane, from the bottom of my heart for your vision, wisdom and creative talents - which are off the charts. It's a joy working with you every day!"
John Martin, EVP Marketing, SMS Assist, a Pritzker Group Company
"We’ve been extremely pleased with the results from Diane. Her work is top notch. Diane is a good communicator which translates into a very efficient working relationship and higher satisfaction rate from our customer. In addition to providing excellent graphics and solid technical support, she is also good working with people and listening to their concerns. She understands what customer service is all about and we appreciate the contributions she brought to our program."
David W. Hammond, Spiders Program Manager, Northrop Grumman
"Diane is one of the best -- no, I correct myself -- the best web designer with whom I have worked in the past 20 years. She leverages a stunning combination of genuine artistry, commercial applicability, street-smart business sense, and optimism about the potential of business in this challenging age -- but all of that is topped off by a singular realism about any project she accepts. To sum it up, she knows what she is doing. And I respect that. (I was referred to her by one of her customers, and have never looked back.)"
Greg Vartanian, Table Top Partners
"Diane is not simply a graphic designer, she is an artistic genius. A consummate professional, Diane beautifully brought to fruition the visions of my mind in a manner that was incredibly creative, thoughtful, and time efficient. She is more than worth every single penny."
Justin Carter, Producer/Show Runner, Breaking & Entering TV
"I knew Diane would design a beautiful website because I had seen her work and was very impressed. What I did not know was that in addition to a first-class web designer, I was also entering into an inspiring creative partnership. What a delight-and relief- it is to work with Diane. The delight part is that she has the technological savvy and experience to produce an accessible and easy-to-navigate site, not only for site visitors, but behind the scenes, for me. Her marketing ideas and execution are brilliant and effective. Her sense of aesthetics and color are remarkable. Her ability to efficiently implement resources to create a quality product is most impressive.
The relief part is that she listens, explains tech requirements in language a non-techie can understand, responds immediately to any changes and ideas, and most of all, is a woman of great integrity. She also is fun and funny and it always makes my day to talk with her."
