Visual Design & Art Direction
I started my career as a graphic designer and have worked as Art Director and Creative Director. I have since built upon those skills and crossed over full-time into User Experience design, and I often call upon and apply my visual design skills to craft app interface systems, page layouts, presentations, and prototypes.
Identity and branding
Identity design is one of my favorite things. This gallery is a summary of work I have designed for non-profit programs, software and games, events, and small businesses.
My identity designs have won multiple awards and have been published in several books on identity and business card design.
I enjoy working with non-profit groups and this 32-page report is an example of one partnership. Funded by First5 CA, CARES of Santa Clara County promotes educational degrees for preschool professionals to improve the overall quality of care.
I did graphic design and photography for a report on impact and insights from their first five years of operation. I Worked closely with the Institute Director and Editorial Manager every step of the way to craft the tone and messages, from planning to concepts to press.
