designing change with intention

We seek out partners who share our fervor for social progress. You’ve got the vision. We’ve got the tools to get you there.

My clients change the world, and I'm so grateful to be a part of their mission. Some of my recent and current clients define a strong role in their industries, ranging from arts and culture, associations and foundations, educational organizations, environmental impact, equality-minded, faith-connected, family and community-oriented, health and wellness, international organizations, and social justice programs.

We work with ethical and sustainable organizations who know the power of strong design and influence in their communities.

recent clients

Since the launch of Studio Humankind in early 2019, I’ve helped dozens of social impact businesses and organizations improve their branding, campaigns, and capital fundraising efforts. 

your story is everything

Why custom design? Because your handcrafted mission is anything but ordinary. And if you want the world to see your authentic story, it's vital now more than ever to reflect that in every element of your work.

save your time

professional quality

Working with a designer will provide a strong ROI that more than doubles your current audience conversion rate, top-of-the-line value present in your mission, a streamlined process, and provide someone who is willing to commit to enhancing your vision in becoming your dream brand.

the value & impact

With a BFA in Design and MSJ in Digital Content Strategy, my extensive expertise will help provide eloquent and cohesive visual impact partnered with strategic planning for getting to the deepest heart of your mission and bring that voice and vision into your work.

Design takes time. Like, a lot of time. For each concept that I present, there are hours of experimenting and testing that happens behind the scenes. By hiring a designer, you will save a huge amount of time and money wasted going back and forth doing your own updates, only to change it again later.

It's easy to tell others not to judge a book by its cover, but that would be a lie about the way we live our lives and the perceptions we've built in our minds about society. This perception is guided in part by acknowledging another's take on external presences and especially in the way stories are told. Therefore, we help you develop quality content and maintain a consistent brand image in your ethical marketing efforts so your audience truly hears and views your message the way it was meant to be communicated.
