About

I am a West Coast creative lady who specializes in making designs that inspire, delight and spark desire. Well versed in visual language, armed with a typographic uppercut, and balanced out with a strategic mindset, I craft memorable design solutions that get to the heart of the matter and deliver the goods.   

During the day you can find me brand building and shaping social media experiences at Article, an online retailer of modern furniture and home accessories. 

Prior to Article, 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 West Coast publishers; 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 sewing, knitting, baking, shibori dying, or cruising around East Van with my daughter on the back of my bicycle.
