I'm Maranda.

I've had a pencil and paper in my hand since I can remember. Art has always been my passion. I taught myself Photoshop at the age of 8 (thankfully I’ve gotten better at it since then). In everything I do, I seek opportunities to design. I believe that spreading awareness is best done visually. Every design has a purpose. Good design achieves that purpose in a pleasing and well thought out manner. 

I started Vagabondary as an Etsy shop to sell my original watercolor greeting cards. At the beginning of 2016, I decided to take it a step further and turn Vagabondary into my personal lifestyle brand. You can read more about my journey here, or check out the blog for your dose of thrift fashion and inspiration.

I'm the creative director at Knoxville Entrepreneur Center, where I work with startups and entrepreneurs from across the state to develop marketing strategies and branding packages. I am a lifelong native of Knoxville, Tennessee. I graduated from Carson-Newman University with a degree in art and an emphasis in graphic design, as well as two minors in communication studies and film. I've been making short films since I was 13 years old and continue to be involved in the independent film community in East Tennessee.

Some of my freelance work includes poster designs for theaters and independent films, logo and identity design for local businesses, promotional short films for companies such as Goodwill Industries of Knoxville, wedding and event invitations, band photography and album art, as well as posters and short films for various competitions and festivals.
