  • Steven Janiak

    Director of Creative Services

    “In my 15 years spent working at Carthage, I’ve realized the great value of a liberal arts education. Seeing and hearing first-hand about the many positive, life-changing experiences that students go through here is inspiring. It makes me feel like I’m a part of something greater, not just trying to sell a product or service I don’t believe in. It’s great motivation.

    “I can help you determine your needs for a given project and design it — brochures, catalogs, posters, postcards, mailers, etc. I also enjoy photography, and have taken thousands of photos for Carthage events, marketing materials, and of our beautiful campus.”
