Randee Paraskevopoulos is a freelance graphic designer and developmental editor at P15 Creative (P15 because Paraskevopoulos has 15 letters). She studied journalism at Berry College in Rome, GA, and became a copy editor. She discovered she loved the page layout part of being a copy editor. Now, 20+ years later, Randee still has a passion for graphic design, even though she can’t draw a decent looking circle.
Over the years, she’s created everything from logos and business cards, up to posters and wall-sized banners, from straightforward web banners to complex, multi-page playbills and catalogs. Her specialty is static graphic design – designs that grab your attention and tell you everything you need to know without moving parts or interactive features.
Her life-time goal has always been to write a novel, so in 2010, she enrolled in the Writing Popular Fiction MFA program at Seton Hill University. By the time she earned her MFA, she had a full, 75-000-word romantic suspense novel. Like many first-time efforts, that book will remain in a box under the bed. She continues to write novels, having expanded her goal to one day get them published. She has had a few short stories appear in anthologies.
Over the course of her study, Randee learned she is very good at helping others with their stories. She's since become a developmental/line editor and earned editing certificates from the University of Chicago and the ACES Poynter Institute. She's also done continuing education with three courses in developmental editing from the Editorial Freelance Association, as well as courses in book mapping, ghostwriting, and sensitivity reading.
Randee lives her own happily-ever-after in an idyllic suburb of DFW with her husband of 27 years. They have two technically adult daughters, both in colleges far away from home. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, taking classes on a variety of subjects, or watching just about any sport or Marvel movie. She often multi-tasks, doing those things while snuggling with her two chihuahua mixes, Pepper and Jane (named after Thor and Iron Man's girlfriends).
In addition to her bachelor’s degree from Berry, Randee has an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and an editing certificate from the University of Chicago.
"Randee brilliantly created over twenty-five graphics and charts for my book "ACE Your Life: Unleash Your Best Self and Live the Life You Want" and also created banners for my new website. Throughout the process of working with her she was artistically creative, immediately responsive to my questions and concerns, and incredibly supportive throughout the process. Randee was also a self-starter and came up with unique suggestions to add dimension and artistry to the work she was doing for me. I can't say enough how invaluable her help and expertise lend to how proud I am to birth my new book and website to the world. I highly recommend Randee for any job, large or small. She's an absolute pleasure to work with and I look forward to calling upon her for future projects ahead."
