I am passionate about designing interesting interactive experiences for people across a variety of mediums.
I specialize in strategic visual branding, website design, print layout, illustration, information architecture, project management, and WordPress hosting and security. I have worked on over 150 websites for educators, academic groups, conferences, medical organizations, Aboriginal communities, small businesses, and creatives in the arts and entertainment industries.
With my work with information architecture, graphic design, and usability studies, I help my clients showcase the strengths of their organization and present themselves in a contemporary and approachable light. My design is steered towards a “top tasks” based usability approach with a handcrafted visual identity, created with my clients. I am highly organized and a strong communicator, whether working alone or within team environments. For me, design is about providing thoughtful, elegant, attractive solutions that suit the people who will use them.
