In January 2004, Marybeth founded Shaw Jelveh Design in order to broaden the content of her work and apply her expertise to organizations seeking transformation by design. She is an enthusiastic proponent of design excellence as a key component to good business and good society. Shaw Jelveh Design has helped over 50 private and non-profit clients improve their image and increase their revenues through Marybeth’s “branding by design” strategies.

Prior to founding Shaw Jelveh Design, Marybeth enhanced all aspects of Wolf-Gordon’s branding and communications, from graphics and advertising to presentation tools and showroom design. Under her creative direction, the Wolf-Gordon brand rose dramatically as she launched a licensed design program that showcased the most innovative designs seen in commercial wallcovering in decades.

Marybeth has also worked for Ehrenkrantz, Eckstut & Kuhn Architects, Richard Meier & Partners, Architects, Formica Corporation and the Architectural League of New York. She holds a Master’s Degree in Architecture from the Ecole d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville, a Master’s Degree in City Planning from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Government from Smith College.

Marybeth is a LEED Accredited Professional in Interior Design + Construction, a member of the Architectural League of New York, the Society of Environmental Graphic Designers, The U.S. Green Building Council and AIGA, the professional association for design. She is a chairholder and recent design chair of the Color Marketing Group. She holds three U.S. design patents for product design.

In addition to working with her clients, Marybeth enjoys helping young designers gain professional experience as interns in her studio. She is a francophile and francophone, loves architectural tourism, skiing and hanging out with her family.
