Special Projects Design Director at Large

With formal training as a graphic designer, 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 City of ChicagoGravity Tank, Ideo, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art ChicagoStudio Gang Architects, Soberscove Press, Sub Rosa, and Threewalls.
