Adriene Mendelsohn, Owner + Graphic Designer

I am a creative self-starter with a great eye for design and color. I love clean lines and am addicted to logos, fonts, and typography in general. I enjoy learning new software, and no design challenge has ever gotten the best of me. I strive to empower women to encompass their own journey just because they have a simple idea, a spark, or a message to send… but are afraid to take that first step.

Going on twenty years, I’ve been married to my very kind and supportive husband, Steve, who has enabled me to build and run my graphic design business over the past fifteen years in the comfort of our home. In 2015, we took a leap of faith and moved from my home state of Maryland to North Carolina. We have a beautiful, compassionate, twenty-six year old daughter, Jessica, who is wise beyond her years and has taught me so much about life and self care. The true top dog in our household is our adorable Westie, Paisley (aka, The Paiz). I am also surrounded by a wonderful core group of family and friends who have inspired and encouraged me along the way.

My passions are anything Broadway, a brilliant sunset, interior decor, photography, aqua aerobics, retreating to the beach, mountains, or scenic vineyard… and of course, chocolate.



Founded in 2003 and happily celebrating fifteen years at Market Impressions, I proudly work for an array of non-profit organizations and for-profit businesses from coast to coast. I work independently with all the cutting-edge software designing a suite consisting of logos, brochures, display ads, invitations, programs, business cards, banners, and more, bringing my expertise and limitless possibilities to complete the branding package. What is a “suite”, you ask? A suite is a collection, a cohesive bundle of materials whether for business branding, wedding invitation designs, or for corporate and special events.

When it comes to managing Market Impressions for the business or the bridal couple, top-notch customer service comes second to none. I listen to what my clients want and bring their vision to life beyond their expectations.

When it comes to graphic design, it’s all in the presentation and everything should flow consistently with a purpose. Remember, building a solid foundation in anything you pursue takes time … plus loads of creativity!



Specializing in the small and start-up business, Market Impressions understands the sensitive care and planning it takes to either launch such a venture, or re-design present materials for a fresh new look. I pride myself on personalizing each and every design project to make your business material unique. No doubt this can be overwhelming for any business owner wondering where to spend the marketing dollars, but rest assured, it can all be accomplished with the proper services for the Small & Start-Up Biz.



Also specializing in Custom Wedding Invitation Suites and Day-Of artistry, I am thrilled to work with such wonderful brides, grooms, and wedding planners. I love getting to know my bridal couples to bring their wedding day vision to life creating custom designs like none other. The suite design consists of, but not limited to, the save the date cards or magnets, invitations, response cards, details cards, and printed envelopes. “Day-Of” reception artwork consists of the welcome sign, ceremony programs, place or escort cards, seating chart, guest table numbers, menus, specialty table signs, favor tags, and more!
