Special Projects Design Director

With formal training in visual communication, I have worked on various projects over a 15 year period, focusing specifically on print design. In the past, my projects ranged from designing postcards and flyers to creating audience engagement marketing pieces for cultural institutions. Over the past five years, I have made a deliberate choice to prioritize my art practice while complementing it with a limited amount of design projects for nonprofits and cultural institutions that share my personal values and beliefs. I am currently available for design direction, and brand/marketing consulting on a project by project basis. Past and ongoing design clients include the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) NYC, The City of ChicagoIdeo, Steppenwolf Theatre Company, the Art Institute of ChicagoArmory Center for the Arts, Purdue University, the Museum of Contemporary Art ChicagoSoberscove Press, Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, and Studio Gang Architects.
