User experience design
I'm a visual storyteller, branding designer, detail-centric person, and a bohemian at heart. I strive to create thoughtful, user-driven designs that will showcase a client's identity and share their story. As a user interface designer, I build seamless, intuitive web and mobile experiences. My first love is illustration and I enjoy creating original characters and designs for both print and digital media.
Dana is a quarterly print magazine that celebrates creative lives and the gifts they bring to the community. The mission of Dana magazine is to showcase the talents and stories of passionate creators, entrepreneurs, and artists, and inspire readers to "nurture creative, generous lives".
The creation of the magazine began with designing a style board, collecting content, and building a flat plan. Dana magazine contains some art directed photography, showcasing artists in their studios and residence. The use of engaging imagery, a light sans serif paired with classic type, and clean white space creates a magazine that is both genuine and inviting.
