Roxanne Benefiel

Roxanne is a graphic designer with a decade of experience. Her career began with work for a diverse selection of small agencies before delving into Colorado’s booming cannabis industry. She spent the majority of her professional career as Senior Designer and Art Director for one of the most successful pioneers in alternative medicine before shifting into freelance work, where she has worked primarily with clients in the non-profit realm. 


Her passion for design does not begin or end with her professional work; she is also an avid volunteer for non-profit organizations. She served as Vice President for The One Club Denver, as well as serving on the club’s Board of Directors for five years. She has also volunteered for AIGA CO and Creative Mornings NYC.


Currently, Roxanne works as a digital and E-commerce designer for the Girl Scouts headquarters in NYC. Outside of work, she is also a professional dancer and dabbles in choreography and other forms of fine and performance art. 


Through the skills acquired in SVA’s Masters in Branding program, Roxanne’s dream is to be able to confidently and comprehensively develop her own brands and assist others who celebrate and lend visibility to the LGBTQ+ community, Cannabis legalization, Women’s and Minority rights, and Environmental Activism.


The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
