Noel Dolan is an award-winning graphic designer and calligrapher who calls Colorado Springs home. She started her graphic design journey in elementary school with a bootleg copy of the original Photoshop and creating her own fonts. Once she became a grown up, Noel attended Colorado State University and The Art Institute of Colorado. She began her career as an intern at the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and later became the Art Director. In 2017, Noel joined the marketing team at Pikes Peak Community College as the Art & Graphic Design Coordinator. In addition to her full-time job, Noel also runs Noel Dolan Creative, teaches calligraphy at Ladyfingers Letterpress, and served as the director of AIGA Colorado Springs for 2 years. Most recently, Noel was named the American Advertising Federation (AAF) Colorado Springs Designer of the Year.
When Noel isn't designing, she's lettering, cooking, reading, snuggling her cat Macbeth, and traveling the world. She considers her global adventures to be the biggest inspiration for her work.
