I am fascinated by all things design and curious about what motivates people. Marrying these sensibilities, I build consistent visual brands across digital, motion, social, experiential and print. Working collaboratively I bring innovative thinking strategies, marketing-know-how and creative management skills to the table.

“It was an absolute privilege to work under Jodie at Invaluable. Not only is she an impeccable designer and Creative Director, but an outstanding mentor as well. She is patient and was always willing to work with me on things that I didn’t understand. She helped me grow significantly as a designer and young professional. Jodie is intelligent, resourceful, and has a natural instinct for design. Her confidence as a leader and designer is something that I will always look up to.”
“Ms. Winsor unified our marketing process creating a large impact for the organization and was an integral part of our increase in revenue for the following three seasons. Jodie redesigned our antiquated website, created an ad campaign that brought direct and recognizable attention to our product, and even found new advertising platforms for the organization – often at no additional cost to the budget! Jodie developed a strategy that would capture the attention of a new audience for a brand new product, a contemporary a capella group. Ms. Winsor helped us realize revenue that exceeded or projection by 47%! Additionally, performances were sold beyond capacity and 60% of our audience was made up of people who had never heard the Desert Chorale perform.”

She is a highly organized manager and team leader. She knows how to draw a team together to work as one. I am so thankful that she was my mentor. I would work for her again in a heart beat.”
