A strategic brand and identity designer who integrates the disciplines of business and strategy to inform graphic, art, environmental and interactive solutions. As a strategic designer I'm interested in discovering who clients want to be and who they can become; not simply what they are. Visually expressing these desires is key for brands to become transformative experiences—they become iconic and emotionally charged.
