Ann Headshot

Ann Moreno has always been creative, artistic and productive. Her first career was as a costumer in the theater. When Ann was ready to try something new, a colleague said that her eye for design and detail would make her an asset in the graphic arts field, and a new career was begun.

Beginning as a typographer in a high-quality type-house in Boston, MA, Ann has more than 30 years experience in Graphic Arts. Her skills include design, marketing, art direction, copy writing & editing, photography, media buying, tutoring and project management.

She has worked all across the United States, from Serif & Sans, Inc., in Boston to the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in California.

Ann opened AVM Graphics full-time in Petaluma in January 1997. Current clients include:

  • The Petaluma Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Harmer-Schau Auction Galleries, Inc.
  • Petaluma Adult School
  • James A. Walsh, Real Estate
  • Wedge Roofing

Ann is a Charter member and Past President of the Rotary Club of Petaluma Sunrise, has been a member of the Petaluma Area Chamber of Commerce since 1997, and has been the Educational Coordinator of the Redwood Empire Business Partners chapter of BNI. She is a graduate of the Petaluma Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Petaluma Program, and has a Masters in Spiritual Psychology. In her spare time, she sings the blues with her husband, Sal, in the band Randy and the Special Agents .

Serious Listening Skills

I believe that you know how to run your business. In fact, you know much more about it than I do—so I will ask questions to get a real feel for your mission, your company’s culture and for you. And amazingly enough, I will listen to your answers! After all, this is YOUR project I’m working on, not just another portfolio piece for me.



I Care About Your Success

That’s why I’ll ask you about current marketing materials, including print, website, social media pages, and email blasts. I want to know what you have already done and what you are planning to do, in order to determine if what you have in mind will work for you. What will get your message across in a way that’s appropriate for the sort of business you do?


Professional Noodging

In other words, excellent (and yet sensitive) project management. I keep you on track for the content that I need to create your project in time to meet your deadline. I coordinate any subcontractors needed for the job, such as illustrators, photographers (did I mention I do art direction as well?) and copywriters. I also coordinate your project with the printer so that you get the best price for what you are printing, and get it on time.


OCD (focused attention to detail)

Since 1997, there have been only 2 jobs reprinted due to an error on my part. That’s out of thousands of projects. So you can be assured that I pay attention to your details—AND I set up the artwork exactly the way the printer or vendor needs it so that there is as little room for error as possible. I have also saved many clients embarrassment from missing their own typos or inconsistencies in a job.


A Sense of Humor

I hope that’s evident in my website—if not, let me know. I enjoy my work, I enjoy working with my clients, and I love to laugh!
