Cheryl is a gift. She always exceeds expectation and has creative talent and technical expertise. She does not just do her job but helps me to do mine at the highest possible level.
Who is Cheryl Hark?

Cheryl graduated from New York University with a Master of Science in Digital Imaging and Design and a Certificate of Graphic Design. She also holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Cum Laude from the University of Michigan, and has provided her creative services to prestigious organizations including The United Nations, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Ford Models and TimeOut NY magazine in New York City. After five years at Stribling & Associates where she single handedly built an art department from the ground up, and upon completion of a total corporate rebranding project, Cheryl accepted a position with one of the nation's top universities.


Cheryl is a driven designer with excellent organization skills, while being an equally successful independent worker and team player. Nearing a decade of professional experience, she brings creativity, ingenuity and avidity to any client and project.


Non Profit

Cheryl heavily supports non-profit and charity work and has been a NY Cares and Taproot Foundation volunteer for over five years. As a NY Cares team leader, Cheryl heads projects addressing a variety of New York City areas of need such as the homeless community, seniors and children, animals, environment and emergency support.


Through the Taproot Foundation, Cheryl exercises her creative mind outside her professional life while simultaneously giving back to the community. In addition, she participates regularly in fundraising, charity events and volunteerism.





A consummate professional in every way. Creative, resourceful, and one who works tirelessly to produce the desired results.
