About

 

Hello!

I am a Graphic/Communication Designer based in Vancouver, Canada. I'm a recent graduate of the Emily Carr University of Art + Design,  and I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of British Columbia.

 

How'd I get here?

After obtaining a psychology degree, followed by a brief stint in clinical research, I returned to my creative roots. Fortunately, psychology and design go together like peanut butter and jelly. Being constantly attuned to human behaviours and thinking patterns allows me to empathize with target users/clients and create designs that fulfill their needs. I therefore take a human-centered approach to design, with a strong consideration for the context of use. For me, great design is always a matter of both form and function.

 

Be still my heart

I'm passionate about all forms of design, especially when it comes to typographybranding, and publication. However, variety is the spice of life, so I've also dabbled with packaging, data visualization, exhibitions, websites, critical design, and social change campaigns. After all, I believe that "if you can design one thing, you can design everything."

 

Etc., etc.

When I'm not designing, I can usually be found curled up with a book, powering through a binge-watch session, or shouting at a European soccer match on TV. 

If you like what you see, don't hesitate to get in touch.
