Meet the Team

Dannielle Stark

After a nine-year run as art director at a local advertising agency, Dannielle felt she could do more to inspire her clients and make a greater impact as an independent designer. Thus, in 2007, was Sleeping Giant Creative born—with the belief that a smaller, more focused team can have more meaningful and significant impact for small- to mid-sized organizations, within more cost-effective budgets. She personally handles all concept and art direction, all the while standing avidly by her mission to make the world a prettier place. And with over two decades worth of experience in the biz, she’s managed to beautify a good chunk of the world she’s come into contact with. On a business card/website/print media level, of course.

Courtenay Stocker

The ultimate “Jill of All Trades” (it’s funny because Jill is her middle name), Courtenay has her hand in a little bit of everything…except making things look pretty. She leaves that to Dannielle. She’s obsessive-compulsive about organization; the oil in the cogs of all our projects, keeping everything running smoothly, efficiently, and on time. Courtenay has a proven ability to provide innovation, enthusiasm, and the forward-thinking leadership needed to take our business to the next level. As the main point of contact for most of our clients, she’s also likely to be the cheerful (usually) voice on the other end of the phone when you give us a call.

Kyle Smith

Kyle started out as our copywriter, coming up with all the pretty words to go with the pretty designs. But since her background is kind of all over the place—she has extensive experience in language arts and fine arts and artsy things, in general—she’s morphed into sort of a jumbled mess of designer/production assistant/writer/content manager. It’s quite a pile of hats balanced on her head at the moment. But she enjoys every single one of them (most of the time).

Alex Fabert

Alex is our poor intern who gets to do all the grunt work the rest of us want no part of. And he’s really good at it. A senior at Hanover College, Alex is currently working toward a degree in Graphic Design with a minor in Business and Communications. He particularly enjoys working on posters and web graphics, and learning more about web design. He’s also a member of the Hanover football team and has a passion for photography, reading, and his COMPLETELY ADORABLE pupper, Nash. So well-rounded, is our Alex.

LET'S CREATE SOMETHING BIG

Sleeping Giant Creative believes that every person, every entity, and every endeavor holds a great deal of hidden potential. Sometimes all it takes is a creative kiss of life to awaken what’s been sleeping inside all along.
