On Identity Design
My favorite design projects are based around identity. I think there is a special kind of magic in distilling an idea into its simplest form, whether it takes the form of a name, mark, or color palette. In an increasingly cluttered world, simplicity means ideas can spread and withstand the test of time.
On Web Design
I have built and managed websites using WordPress, Squarespace, Carrd, and Duda. I currently prefer Carrd for personal projects like this portfolio ($20 a year for 10 sites!) and Duda for client work (beautifully simple white-label platform for agencies).
Note: I included the Pacesetting Times website not because it's beautiful (it's not haha) but because it is functional. I built it seven years ago while interning as a reporter at a tiny newspaper. I taught their staff how to use Wordpress, and they still use it today!
On Company Culture
I enjoy working toward a common goal with passionate people. I take work seriously, but I like to laugh about almost everything else. I believe most conflicts can be resolved with empathy and communication.
