Sheren Bamberger is a Designer at VerdandBold and has been a member of the team for just over a year. Sheren received her Bachelor of Design—with a focus in Graphic Design—from the University of Illinois at Chicago, so she is the resident expert on both custom icon designs and the Chicago food scene.
When she’s not helping create kick-ass presentation at VerdanaBold, you can find Sheren on the Metra train listening to podcasts and music on her way back to the suburbs.

What do you most pride yourself on in your work for VerdanaBold?
I always feel really proud seeing the before and after of a slide or deck I’ve worked on, because I get to see how much we’ve helped our clients better communicate their ideas with an audience.
What is your favorite thing about working at VerdanaBold?
Something I love about working at VerdanaBold is the variety of design work I get to do: sometimes it’s a print piece, other times it’s a huge keynote presentation. The variety in both project type and client size keeps things interesting and lets me access different aspects of creativity.
What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now? (or) What is your favorite project you’ve worked on at VerdanaBold?
I find making custom icons for clients to be really rewarding because it’s an exercise in expressing both the brand and the idea of the icon itself. The process of making the holiday card and gifts was also a really great experience, because I was able to work on them from ideation to assembly—and it was an opportunity to show appreciation to our great clients!
What is your favorite restaurant in Chicago?
Lou Malnati’s (because we can’t talk about food in Chicago without talking about pizza)
At what store would you like to max your credit card out?
Barnes & Noble or Blick Art Supplies
What is your secret talent that no one knows about?
I really like doing large oil paintings.
