Hello! I am a freelance creative director and branding expert living on the beautiful West Coast. I create designs and experiences that inspire, delight and spark desire. Well versed in visual language, armed with a typographic uppercut, and balanced out with a strategic mindset, I design memorable brand solutions that engage audiences, exceed expectations and help brands take flight.
My design chops have come from a collection of experiences: I was the Art Director at Article.com, where I oversaw brand development and social media presence for the successful start-up. Prior to that, I designed wine labels and created specialty food brands at Brandever. I co-founded Working Format with my husband Ross Milne, a Vancouver-based studio specializing in type design. I've also freelanced for various publishing houses; instructed at Emily Carr University in the areas of typography and bookmaking; was selected as a design fellow at Chronicle Books (an opportunity still close to my heart), and a lived and worked as a designer in The Netherlands.
When I'm not in front of a screen you can find me taking photos, sewing, making art, or cruising around East Van on my bike.
