Why Me

I’m a designer who loves to create memorable, meaningful graphic and web designs that engage viewers and enhance usability. I help my clients stand out with strategic creative services. I do this through graphic design, web design, and front-end web development. I can renew your company’s brand, expand your digital platform, and engage your customers.

I love jobs with equal work in design and development, so if you’re looking for a designer who can code it too, please feel free to get in touch with me.

The Soft Skills

Besides the hard technical skills, I have acquired several soft skills and nuance over my 8 years of designing.

I am independent and need little guidance. (Perhaps this is my solopreneur background!) A blank page and a blinking cursor don’t intimidate me. I thrive working from scratch to create new designs such as the Smile TeamOpen Heart Parrot Rescue, and SPC Safety & Security logos, or even 100% hand-coded websites built without any WYSIWYGs.

I also have experience with project management. I understand the balancing act between scope, priority, and resources between multiple, simultaneous projects. I even manage risk by trying to predict and creating solutions to issues before they arise, such as building in grace-room in a production schedule for a client that tends to be late or last-minute.

I excel at writing client presentations to explain the decision-making behind a design. Judges from AIGA DC’s Creative Reviews have frequently praised (and asked to imitate!) my logo infographics, and my Case Study approach resonates with my peers and clients better than a portfolio or slideshow.

Yet the soft skill that is my pride and joy, that I really enjoy doing A LOT, is process improvement. I like documenting processes, often through shareable tutorials or orientation guides. I like testing designs against usability heuristics. I like organizing things. Whether sorting paper stock libraries, maintaining archival filing systems; or strategically removing or adding redundancies—I believe everything deserves a designated space. You can see how I’ve incorporated this skill into my Case Studies’ presentation of the problem and results.
