The daughter of two advertising greats, Conal learned from a young age to value the creative process and how a strong brand can inspire greatness. In college she studied Sociology, and spent the few years following her graduation living in Thailand where she taught Kindergarten. She then ran an after school arts program in disadvantaged Chicago Public Schools. These experiences give her unique insight into the human condition and also solidified her desire to use art to impact people.

Conal attended The Chicago Portfolio School and started her career as an Art Director / Graphic Designer. At some of the world’s most renowned ad agencies, she has worked on such brands as Blackberry, Miller/Coors, Tampax, Vicks, Glaxo Smith Kline, Terminix and True Green.

Having worked part time in the food and beverage industry from the age of 15, Conal has a passion for hospitality and it shows in her branding and graphics work for planBgroup projects like Start Restaurant, Whiskey Cake, Mexican Sugar, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company, Velvet Taco and Cici’s Pizza.
