Design experience honed far and wide: from the hills of Berkeley to the canyons of NYC and on to the prairies of Madison, WI with a couple of formative years in Budapest. I will translate your mission into fresh, impactful, successful visuals that work.
Armed with a B.A. in Art History from Swarthmore College and a life-time of combining text and doodles (sign/calendar/card maker deluxe), I dove in to the official world of graphic design by taking some design classes at San Francisco City College and working as the art assistant at Mondo 2000 magazine. After I moved to NYC in my mid-20s, I became an art director at a couple of media companies (New Video, then Stim.com). I also started designing books — starting with boing boing's Happy Mutant Handbook — and then later as the co-owner of a 2-woman design shop in Manhattan (pink design, inc.) where we focused on book design. Presently, I'm settled in Madison, Wisconsin, working with a range of clients near and far — as both an art director, designer, and/or illustrator. For many years, I was the freelance art director for Downtown Bookworks (see downtownbookworks.com for the full line of books I designed). Recent clients include: More Smiles Wisconsin, Experience Camps, Madison Public Library Foundation, Madison Conservatory, Rebel Girls Books, a360media, Wisconsin Dental Pain Protocol, Gakken Books, Stonesong Press, and the American Playwriting Foundation. Older work is visible on my previous website grfix.com.
