Creator, Connector, Collaborator
Design | San Francisco Bay Area, US
I have 14 years of experience in design and art direction for everything from non-profits to start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. I branded dozens of businesses currently operating today and have been responsible for the design and maintenance of several consumer-facing websites which continue to garner millions of page views every month. My responsibilities included all phases of the UI/UX process as well as overall creative direction and production. I've owned the company's visual identity in many of my roles, managing every aspect of the brand in print and online—at times working as the sole creative and at others leading a small team of people—while fulfilling the needs of internal and external clients. This includes working with merchandising and marketing teams to envision and design seasonal editorial themes, marketing campaigns, promotional banners, weekly emails (going out to a growing list of over 1 million subscribers) and other touchpoints across desktop and mobile in order to drive revenue conversion. I also have several years of experience in printed publications, art directing photo shoots and taking entire issues from conception to completion.
Specialties include: branding, creative direction, e-commerce, advertising, marketing, design strategy, UI/UX, and IxD. Especially interested in: HCI, mobile, gaming, fashion, photography, entertainment, writing, and social media.
