connecting people with
brands

 I have worked with several organizations over the years developing and re-vitalizing brand experiences. I am versatile with both leading design teams and also working as a Senior Designer, Professional Photographer, and Illustrator.  

My past career roles include Senior Art Director, Brand Manager, and Marketing Manager. I have experience working in-house with a variety of teams and stakeholders. I also have gained experience in Experience and Environmental Design through various projects. A large focus of my studies has shifted to ethnography and consumer behavior. 

I’ve managed multiple capital projects simultaneously and most recently worked with several fitness publication contracts with a variety of industry professionals. I developed a Strong Community© brand philosophy in my last role as Senior Art Director which became the cornerstone of an entirely new and inclusive brand strategy. The results were excellent. 

UX / UI DESIGN

I am skilled at User Interface and User Experience Design. I am constantly studying best practices for both UX and UI, and an active part of Denver UX and Design Community.

I have experience both working independently and with teams on projects as a UX Generalist and UI Designer.

Projects

As a Multidisciplinary,  I bring a unique ability understand how various visual components can be crafted  to accommodate a variety of viewing environments and help the client reach their goals. I’ve earned awards for architectural imaging in Colorado and enjoy communicating the beauty of line, shape and form. 

This real estate client requested a package consisting of a complete property shoot, a walk-through motion video, and a website for the property. We identified the key feature areas of this beautiful home and crafted an elegant visual story for prospects.

BRAND
IDENTITY

My most recent identity project was for Retro Publishing Company. The final mark tells the story of tension and vulnerability. The books represented by this publisher contain edgy and gritty story elements.

We explored the most effective way to craft a mark that was both powerful and readable in a wide variety of both print and digital environments. I’m very excited for their latest book release and their new identity mark is helping them get noticed and on the airwaves.
