Experiential Designer

Making everyday places communicate.

Integrated Approach

A wholistic design leads to a more positive visitor experience. With a background in theatre, graphics, and technology I can help bridge, the often large gap, between all branded touchpoint pieces, bringing storytelling to life within a physical space.

Wayfinding Signage Systems

I've worked on wayfinding projects from start to finish—with previous experience in the heatlh, academia, transportation, retail, residential, and mixed used settings.

Environmental Graphics

From exhibits, to corporate displays, and even public art, I have worked on projects ranging big to small, simple to intricate

Physical & Digital Technology

Past projects include digital wayfinding, bespoke digital billboards, non-digital interactive and changable walls, as well as media screen integration.

The Design Process

My process can follow that of architects or work completely on its own.

01 Schematic Design

Research, analysis, planning, and concepting get a project started. Final output is a desired design direction, nomeclature review, and locations desired placement locations for items.

02 Design Development

Working through the finer details of the design direction, I give my clients the best options to fit the project. Deliverables include approved typography, material & methods for build, size, shape, and general design asthetic.

03 Design Intent

From here I work with fabricators, developerrs, and vendors to price out the desired design. I take those numbers and value engineer the project into your budget, developing final design intent documents that descirbed exactly what we want the vendors to create.

04 Implementation

Here is where I verify the design we worked to build is implemented correctly, on-time, and on-budget. I'll be in the thick of work answering questions and verifying design decisions.
