Design is all about solving problems, and I am a problem solver by nature. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design from Montana State University in 2012. I have since completed a wide range of print & design projects for a variety of clients.
When I am designing I always keep the whole picture in mind, beginning with abstract ideas and direction, and ending with the concrete details of the physical product.
Theory Magazine was an independent arts and culture magazine that I created and directed for three years. I was responsible for a majority of the content creation, design and print and web production associated with the project. I also handled advertising relationships, event planning and web development. The magazine spanned four physical print editions as well as extra web content. Each of the four issue releases culminated with a group art show and party. I designed the experiences to mix and match different creative circles within our small community. You can see more of this project on our archived website and facebook page, as well as digital copies of the publication on Issuu.View Site
After relocating their business to Montana, PRH required a new advertising campaign and new in clinic signage and materials. I worked as their in-house designer for all print projects for two years handling everything from posters and advertising, to in-clinic signage and patient forms.
I’ve designed event fliers for clients as well as for events that I organized myself over the years.
Branding and identity design is an indispensable part of any business. When I develop a new identity for a company, my goal is to create something iconic that represents the values of the company, and is also flexible and easily applied over various applications. Identity is more than just a logo, it should be an entire look and feel that touches every aspect of your business.
I designed a logo mark for a local manufacturer of bokashi composting materials. The client wanted her brand to have a look and feel that celebrated the feminine nature of the company.
The Bozeman Actor’s Theatre required a logo that was flexible enough to apply across different applications. I created a mark that could stand alone as an icon, and various placements of the text to accommodate different spacing constrictions.
I designed this logo for my own independent digital music label in 2014. The mark was used on album art, the website and merchandise and advertising associated with our company.
