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 a report, add beauty to a project that may have been thought of as ugly or unimportant and help businesses present information to customers.
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. Then I freelanced for 3 years working with amazing companies creating marketing material and infographics. I now am working at IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) doing infographics and reports. I am so excited to be part of this world health organization.
