My design career started inside a cubicle – a beige cubicle filled with beige work. My daily tasks included laying out math workbooks and putting together real estate ads for the newspaper. It was when I stepped outside that beige world, and started out on my own, that I really spread my designer wings (#designerwings). After a year or two of working for myself, I was able to land clients like Nissan, Mazda, Dreamworks, Red Bull, GMC and Scientific American.
After years of working on projects for clients I began to feel a pull to turn my efforts toward something larger. Science, the scientific method, and it’s history of discoveries has provided me a way to approach questions, fears and doubts that were objective and without an agenda for the truth it discovered. And also science is suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper cool. I was drawn into a world of quasars, quarks, relativity and electricity. I loved learning about the building blocks of the universe.
When I began work on my science series I wanted to provide a beautiful and accessible approach toward subjects and theories that were so much bigger than myself and provide a way to celebrate the science that created them.
My work continues to move through outer space, the quantum realm and into new and interesting scientific theories about the world we live in. The future seems full of new discoveries and I look forward to learning about them and exploring them through my work.
