About

I am a West Coast creative leader and brand specialist. 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 solutions that exceed expectations. 

During the day you can find me brand building and shaping social media experiences as an Art Director at Article, an online Modern furniture retailer. 

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 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, making art, or cruising around East Van with my daughter on the back of my bicycle.
