Principal + Creative Director

Genevieve has worked in design and marketing since the web was a baby, earning a BFA in Graphic Design while building 640x480 websites on the side. She started Red Lemon Creative in 2009 out of a desire to take on diverse, meaningful work and collaborate directly with passionate leaders. Clients rely on her ability to help them articulate their ideas and the way she functions seamlessly as an extension of their team – as well as her accessibility, collaborative style, and penchant for remaining calm in a storm.

When not supporting her clients, Genevieve enjoys biking, hiking, improv and stand-up comedy, strength training, and adventuring in and beyond Portland, Oregon with her husband and two children in their Eurovan.
