Brand Designer, Social Media Manager + Content Curator
Designing my whole life, I have a passion for creating spaces and brands that inspire people. But more importantly, I have a passion for making people passionate about their passions. We live in a visual world and design is at the core of everything we do. I've spent the last few years growing my expertise in graphic design and social media management, while also learning the importance of exercising a creative brain.
From a young age I've been fascinated by colors, patterns, layouts and their affect on the human mind. My parents have always had a subscription to the popular Coastal Living Magazine - that's where the design monster inside of me began to grow. We received those magazines monthly and I would awe at the way designers could make something so special by incorporating meaning and style. This love for design began to grow so much so that I began drawing random designs in notebooks that I still have to this day. My sketches ranged from interior design drawings, to floor plans, to logos and even website banners. In fact, looking back on it I realize how odd that is for a pre-teen to do, but what can I say...I'm a planner at heart and those design magazines inspired me to do what I do best. And as I got older, I became fascinated with the way design influences people and how it can greatly help (or hurt) a business.
I made the strong decision to go to college for not only marketing and business, but also architectural preservation and community planning. Most people wonder why I paired these majors together when I first tell them, but I've learned that nothing has to go hand in hand in order for an education to work. Throughout my time studying at the College of Charleston, I learned all about the significance of what a brand (and fantastic brand management) brings to a business, but more importantly, what the history, stories, and design do too.
And here I am today...working with clients and inspiring them to bring their stories to their brand while incorporating their surrounding community and target audience. And although I know there's still a lot of work ahead of me, I love the life I get to bring to businesses, and the expression on clients faces when their dreams are finally coming full circle.
