As an independent digital creative director and hands-on designer for digital products, I partner with companies, teams, clients and colleagues to create successful solutions to complex design problems. I focus on clean, efficient and user-friendly design. I revitalize products and brands by employing visual hierarchy, space, color and typography to establish a compelling and uniform visual language.
I have designed independently and on staff, as a team leader and a team player. My approach is straightforward, practical and efficient. Driven by critical thinking, collaboration, purpose and problem solving. I prefer prototyping over photoshopping, workshops over working alone, understanding the user over making assumptions, and puppies over kittens. I enjoy optimizing products, processes, and teams for responsive web, mobile, marketing initiatives, identity and print.
Currently, I work as an independent designer with leading publishers, media brands, and small businesses that need an experienced high-level, hands-on designer. By quickly understanding project needs and specifications, I create modern approaches to their digital products, graphic design, and branding needs.
