what is ribbons of red?

Technically, it's a song my grandmother wrote and used to sing around the house when I was little. When she passed away 12 years ago, I created this one-woman design studio, and I've been pushing pixels for photographers ever since!

Kick that my-brand-is-never-finished-feeling once and for all. I can help.

Pretty can only take you so far. Beauty and brains is how you stand apart. I go beyond the aesthetics of design and help you look at your brand from a strategic point of view. To understand where your business needs to go and how design can be used effectively to get you there.

(smart) DESIGN
YOU'RE CONFIDENT IN

Picture a day where you're confident and unafraid of your own brand. Feels impossible, right? Guess what? It's not. Knowledge is power, and throughout our time together, I'll teach you so many tips and tricks about branding that your friends will think you're the expert!

CURING YOUR BRAND OVERWHELM SINCE 2007™

your designer in shining armor

You put up a good fight. You bought one (or fifty) fonts too many, and you have an expanding collection of cheap(ish) website templates to match. Yet everything you’ve excitedly purchased just... doesn't... quite... work. 

This is not what you bargained for. You thought you knew who you were, but now you're just—confused? Am I Elegant? Modern? Both? Sh*t. You find yourself wishing you could just snap those camera-clickin' fingers of yours and your entire brand would be—*poof*—finished!

I feel you.

After pushing pixels for 20 years, let's just say I know more than a few tricks to make sense of all that beautiful choas floating around inside your head. I lovingly call it your 'happy mess', and I—*poof*—weave it into a beautiful brand (that you never have to worry about again).

Pinky promise.

Oh, and stop binge-buying all those dang fonts, will ya?

"I know firsthand (because I tried) that designing is not an easy task! The intentional, thoughtful touches you sprinkled throughout. The perfect, French vibe. Every time you design something for me, it blows me away! I absolutely love it!"

Traveling renews me. I try to plan at least two trips a year to new places. I fell in love with Alys Beach about 8 years ago, and I reallyyy want a property there some day.

Outside of design, it's my creative outlet. I love to photograph my girls. I am obsessed with Polaroids, toy cameras, and film.

I love Danish furniture. The simplicity and thoughtfulness of it is something I bring into my own work. I'm always looking for my next piece. (I scored that Harry Bertoia chair for $5!)
