Gina Maria Rosato has devoted most of her life to studying the visual arts and collaborating with talented and inspiring academics and artists. She graduated from Georgian Court College in New Jersey with a BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration in 2001 and became a freelance graphic designer and launched The Creative Crackerjack. After getting her feet wet as a catalog production artist, she traded in her pantyhose for blue jeans and left the east coast in search of a different pace of life.

Her commercial art career resumed after moving to Silverton, Colorado, where she had previously spent several summers working while attending college. She got a job with the local magazine publisher, where she perfected the display advertisement working on several publications showcasing Southwestern Colorado. Realizing how the business owners that she worked with needed more detailed design needs in their advertising budgets, she teamed with another local design business creating marketing collateral, wedding invitations and hand painted personalized wooden sleds for a local maker. In 2004, Gina was finally prepared to give it a go on her own, bringing her knowledge and quality design to her own clients.

Gina takes pride in her inventive design skills that work with a variety of budgets. Working with her takes the crunch out of your deadlines with intoxicating results. She has clients all around the world, from Colorado to Germany, and has the versatility to work remotely or locally to produce the ideal product for you. Some of her regional clientele include The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Silverton Mountain, Silverton Skijoring, Mesa Verde Country and the Colorado Department of Transportation. 

In 2011, Gina established Route 550 Gifts, a business where she designs, and markets one-of-a-kind souvenirs inspired by her small mountain hamlet. Currently her souvenirs are available at the 9318 Collective, the Whistle Stop, Station 550, Elevated Coffee Company, and the Silverton Train Store.
