Howdy

I’m Renée, and I design. That means I concept, create, direct, and deliver engaging visual experiences for humans, by a human.

What I do

Creative Direction

Conceptualizing design systems and solving big-picture problems while mentoring junior creatives are why I design. Shaping the creative to send the right message is vital, and creating is not just a job, it’s a necessity for me.

Brand Identity

Branding can make or break a campaign, and I use human-centered design to deliver solutions to the problem at hand. Helping a company figure out its personality is challenging and incredibly rewarding.

Interactive Design

Ideating, wireframing, building and rapid prototyping inform my process. I also write HTML5 and CSS3 with enough javascript to be dangerous. The age-old argument of ‘should designers code’ doesn’t interest me. I can and do.

Print Design

From brochures to posters, I create print pieces that inform and engage audiences in any industry. At last count, I had 37 different books on paper types in my apartment, and they live right next to my Pantone books.
