My services include web design, branding and collateral design, information design, illustration, front-end web development, WordPress theme development, training, and more, all customized for you and your unique project.
I’ve been happily making things for wonderful clients since 2006. I’ve worked with large companies (like Peets Coffee, Dagoba Organic, and Nutiva Organic), agencies (like Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Agency, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, and the City and County of San Francisco), universities (like UC Davis, University of Colorado, and CSU East Bay), businesses, non-profits, and individuals.
I use a clear and inclusive process that involves you in your project. I ask questions, get your input and preferences, design/review/revise, build, and provide training so that what we create provides as much value as possible.
I also sincerely care about my clients. I want the experience of working together to delight you, and I want what we create to inspire you.
If you’re interested in working together, please contact me. I’d love to learn about your project!
how it works
understand & propose
You and I will chat about your needs, wants, budget and schedule. If we seem like a good fit, I will provide a no-obligation proposal that clearly communicates my understanding of your project and estimated costs. This will give us a plan to follow if you decide to move forward.
research, inspire & focus
We will discuss your strategy, inspiration and preferences to inform your project’s design, architecture and functionality. Sometimes this step can include a mood board and sketches so we can vet ideas and preferences before any more in-depth design work begins.
mockup, review & revise
I will draft one or more initial options for a project's general design. You will review and provide input, and I will revise. We repeat this process for other critical or representative designs.
code, test & refine
train & go live
For website projects, I provide you with a training book and session so you can manage your website’s content over time. Once the final content is added, we go live! For print and branding projects, I provide you with the final files you require.
Once your project is launched, you may identify ways to stay relevant and engaging over time. An ongoing relationship with a client is a beautiful thing, and I feel lucky when I get to be a part of a client’s continued work.
