Dania Beach, FL- Connie Barone has graciously contributed her time in designing the modernand effervescent art that is used for this year’s 6th Annual Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration (DBASC). Her 2018 Dania Beach commemorative poster will be unveiled during the May 3rd Event Kick-Off Party that takes place at 6PM in the Frost Park Recreation Hall located at 300 NE 2nd St. in Dania Beach. “This will be my fourth year designing collateral for the Arts and Seafood Celebration and I am beyond eager to reveal my artistic depiction of all that this event embodies. I love to work with cities who are seeing a refresh, or who just want to continue evolving and looking towards the future,” states Barone.

Born in Boynton Beach, Florida, Connie has lived in south Florida for most her life. She has always had a passion for art and graphic design starting at a young age. She went on to follow her passion and study the art of graphic design at Daytona State College in Daytona Beach, Florida and also completed a creative internship at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Barone’s digital art comprises of logo design, marketing and branding, print and environmental media design. In its most refined essence, digital art encapsulates an artistic work or practice that uses any form of digital technology as part of its creation or presentation process, as Barone utilized to create her youthful masterpiece for this year’s event.  

“Digital art greatly expanded my toolbox from the traditional raw materials into a progressive new realm of electronic technologies. Instead of brush and acrylic, I can now paint with light, sound, and pixels,” states Barone.

Later she started freelancing for many cities in the South Florida area including clients in Oakland Park, Margate, Pompano Beach and Dania Beach, including work for the Dania Beach Arts and Seafood Celebration. Barone has won numerous awards for print design over the past five years.She currently lives in Vero Beach, Florida serving as a freelance graphic designer.
