Hello_Image_LongAndLean2.jpg

Graphic designer.  Thinker.  Problem solver.
 Bottom line? I make complicated ideas easy to understand and beautiful to look at.

Logos, brochures, books, tradeshow displays, books, signage, mail packages, advertisements, banners, take-ones... all these are possible solutions to a client's greater communication goals. I believe it's my job to understand these goals and design something — or suite of somethings — that best achieve them. It's this type of strategic design that I excel at and enjoy.

A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, I started my work experience at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia as an intern in their Kids  magazine art department. A long-time lover of books and magazines (and a well-thought out grid), I stayed to work as a designer and art director not only on Kids, but also the redesign team of Body+Soul and Blueprint magazines. Ready for a new challenge outside the magazine industry, I  joined the small but ferociously talented design studio, Little Fury. I worked on environmental projects for Paramount and Nickelodeon, as well as maps for their unique Start Here product line. However, a city girl I'm not, so I packed up my tiny Queens studio and moved to Maine, I've worked as Senior Designer at McCabe, Duval + Associates, a small advertising and design agency in Portland. I was proud to work on projects from start to finish for local and national clients including Bangor Savings Bank, Puritan, Trustmark Bank, RBC Bank, Wex, Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine, Central Maine Orthopaedics, Coastal Humane Society, and The Nature Conservancy. Now a freelance designer, ____________
