I run a one-woman design studio specializing in beautiful, smart, and effective publications. Blending the beauty of typography, imagery, and color in ink on reams of glorious paper is my number-one focus. I internalize the author's story or message, then convey it directly to their defined audience in a way that is not just appealing but irresistible. I design covers that attract, sell, and endure. My interior layouts sit back elegantly and bring the story to life with the least effort for the reader. My background lies heavily in publication design with a foundation in branding, marketing, and advertising for commercial clients. This blend gives me a sharp perspective on cover performance on the store shelf and in the online marketplace.
As Art Director for Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine and Northern Home & Cottage I designed 18 magazines a year, plus special and custom publications while managing a small team of designers and photographers and working closely with production staff. I was part of the staff that won four national awards for Traverse Magazine in the mid-2000s.
Graphic designer for print and interactive projects, information graphics, advertising and exhibit design in a marketing agency.
