Since 2005, Guerra has worked as a freelance and in-house graphic designer for non-profit organizations, large-scale corporations, and private artists across New England producing sleek, eye-catching publicity materials, including: postcards, posters, programs, web campaigns, annual donation forms, promotional videos, websites, business cards, brochures, wedding invitation suites, advertisements, in-print books and magazines, online e-newsletters and marketing materials, CD artwork, and event calendars.
Guerra first brought her design skills to New Repertory Theatre, followed by five productive years as Art New England magazine's Art Director, designing nearly every page, ad, and cover of this bi-monthly in-print periodical. After her most recent work with the prestigious Princeton University Press, Guerra now continues her role as the in-house designer for Luminarium Dance Company and is currently accepting freelance projects as she pursues her Master of Fine Arts in Dance through Rutgers University.
“I worked with Merli at Art New England magazine for two years... Merli always did her best to make the layout, design, and upload process as clear to the rest of the team as possible, keeping us updated constantly as we proofread and provided edits, and notifying me immediately whenever there was a concern that I needed to address. She always remained positive and focused, even during the tightest and most stressful deadlines. Merli is a star communicator and organizer; she would shine on any team.”
