LOGOS + BRANDING
As a designer specializing in playful, illustration-based branding, I welcome the opportunity to help new businesses develop their identity. Logo design allows me to bring all of my skills to the table: illustration, creative problem-solving, graphic design, and, most importantly: listening. Each branding project is a collaboration, and I’m always inspired by my clients. I’ve been lucky to work with some extraordinary people (women, in particular!) who are following their dreams and working to make the world a better place.
