When I see the world, I start thinking. I think about patterns and ways to improve an experience or tell a story. I’m a graphic designer but it goes beyond color and type and iconography. My dream is to help – to create something that helps people understand an idea better through a poster or infographic, makes it easier to read an eBook, add beauty to a project that may have been thought of as ugly or unimportant and help businesses present information to customers.
My philosophy on projects is that it’s a collaboration. A collaboration between what your customers or viewers want, what you have to sell or say and what I dream up. I work alone but I don’t do this alone. I need your help and your input and together we create something that ultimately makes an experience better.
I have a degree in Graphic Design and after graduating, I became lead designer at True Fabrications, a wine accessory company in Seattle. I created wine bags, catalogs, packaging and worked with great people on lots of fun projects. I now am a freelance designer and I love learning about new companies and their goals and dreams and how I can help.
I also have an Etsy shop called Dawn and Water where you will find handcrafted watercolor prints celebrating alphabet letter art.
I love life and try to enjoy it every minute. This is why I chose design, I love doing it.
We all have part of the answer and when we come together we create solutions.
