I work with small and large clients to help visualize their brands on and offline. I project manage too, and work hard to make sure everyone is on time, on budget, and really impressed with the finished product.
I have a passion for handicrafts and the “old-school” way of making things, and translate this into design clarity and timelessness, that for me, takes priority over using the latest trends where they may not suit. I try to look at what works for you, and your project, and come up with the most individual solution I can.
I excel at coming up with solutions that aren’t necessarily common, but suit the challenge in the best way possible. Please send me an email to learn more about my process, pricing, and how I can help out!
