Graphic designer makes Colorful Case for talent

Casey Armstrong's love of the arts began when she was a little girl.

"I had a talent at a young age for drawing and painting," Armstrong said.

Her artistic ability eventually led her to the University of Central Florida, where she received a bachelors in fine arts, specializing in graphic design.

After years of working as an in-house designer for organizations such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the United Soccer League, the Land O'Lakes native recently started her own graphic design and event branding company, the Colorful Case.

"It's been a really, really exciting and unique experience so far," Armstrong said. "I'm loving it."

The Colorful Case offers business and event branding, and graphic design for new or existing businesses and organizations of all sizes. Armstrong's services are tailored to her client's needs, so whether a company wants a new logo and website, or just needs to market a specific event, she provides her creative services.

Armstrong said that she always had a calling to be her own boss, and constantly did freelance work. Though she is based out of Lutz, Armstrong works with companies near and far. One of her latest projects is designing new shirts and a logo for the Houston Texans Cheerleaders.

"I can work with anybody, anywhere," Armstrong said. "I also love to support and offer my services to local businesses and organizations in my area because I did grow up here."
