I’ve been in love with graphics, fonts and color for as long as I can remember. That obsession has lead me to a creative life fueled by amazing clients seeking beautiful brands and high-impact design.

With over a decade in business, I've had the opportunity to design for businesses of all shapes and sizes. I love working collaboratively with creative entrepreneurs who are looking to make a statement with their branding and marketing. 


HOW ITs going

When I was ten, my mom, an elementary school teacher, asked me to create a certificate design on my Apple IIGS in my Print Shop program. In retrospect, I should have known that the girl who searched for the perfect clip art illustrations and quickly learned the proper way to use a rainbow gradient would destined for design.

HOW IT STARTED

THAT BASICALLY MADe MY DAY.

To start, it’s what my clients want — and what I strive for on every project. It’s also a philosophy and here’s how I see it:

Great design happens at the hard-to-reach intersection of expertise, intuition, focus and perspective. 

Great design is like an iceberg. First, it definitely gets your attention! Second, the important elements lie below the surface — deep inquiry, critical thinking, trial and error, and inspiration, to name a few.

Great design is the result of a unique relationship between the client and designer: one of trust and sharing, of exploration and inquiry, and of a mutual commitment to reaching the goal at hand. 

Great design may speak for itself, but until we get there, I’m happy to explain my ideas, and listen intently to yours. This ongoing dialog is crucial; in my experience, it’s often statements like “this may not be that important” that point to where the best solutions lie.

Great design needs to speak clearly to the intended audience. If they don’t get it, it’s not successful … no matter how modern the fonts or how daring the color combinations.
