Design Retrospective

I'm a visual designer who creates bold identities and executes them across multiple mediums. I believe in the power of strong design and have an endless passion for well crafted experiences (I'm also quite passionate about poorly crafted experiences, lol).

I thrive in collaborative environments and have worked in the design industry for over a decade. Please check out my work and feel free to contact me with any inquiries.

Identity

The most important part of an identity is the immediate emotional reaction it creates. Intention and values are reflected by identity, and purpose is revealed when design effects people on a visceral level.

Technology

Good design requires an equally good technological foundation. An extensive understanding of the possibilities and limitations of CSS, HTML, Javascript, etc. benefits process and leads to a better user experience.

Experience

The success of a visual experience is dependent on how the user feels at every point of interaction. Thoughtful and consistent application of identity through technology is what makes great design.
