Vicky Gouge has a passion for kids.
She also has a passion for drawing and sketching, which led her to the graphic design profession.
She earns a living doing the latter, as the Principal at Full Moon Design Group, Inc., which gives her an income to be able to do the former. She’s been helping kids in trouble for a long time, and has been board member at Promise House, a home for teens in crisis, since early August of 2011-- over five years.
Her responsibilities have included participating on various fundraising committees, creating awareness for the organization, and volunteering. She’s now in her second three-year term on the board.
Promise House serves thousands of youth every year, and Vicky feels her friends would want to help the homeless--and sometimes pregnant teens--and runaways.
She says, “I’m always inviting friends to events the Promise House hosts, and even had my brother in law’s basketball team hand out home-made cookies to the teens there.”
Her Core group of friends and acquaintances know of her passion, and often help out with volunteering, raising awareness for Promise House and connecting her to funding possibilities to help keep Promise House running.
Vicky began her creative journey at an early age with a constant passion for both kids and creative arts. This passion was the foundation for her excellence in the arts and the numerous awards she won for her creative artwork. Vicky’s passion for the arts continued throughout her college years at Texas State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Art & Journalism. Since graduating, Vicky has gone on to work in every aspect of graphic design, lending to her expansive knowledge of the industry.
As principal and co-founder of Full Moon Design Group, Vicky brings to the company a fervor and drive for accomplishment and advancement. Her focus is to build long term relationships by offering cutting edge design solutions and top-notch client service. Vicky thrives at constantly pushing the bar to be successful in whatever challenge she undertakes. She believes that building long-lasting client relationships is crucial to everyone’s success, and it is this belief that is the foundation to Full Moon’s exponential growth.
Since its inception in 2004, Full Moon Design Group has achieved many awards, including the “Best of Austin Reader’s Poll,” “Austin Business Journal Top 25 Graphic Design Firms,” and the “Best of Westlake Hills 2008 Graphic Arts Poll.”
