The project starts with a kick-off meeting with the client and the research begins: learn about the users, the client, the competition, and the market.
Diagram the user experience and create a project timeline. Create the tone and manner, organize estimates, and develop a variety of visual directions.
The visual direction has been chosen and now it can start being applied. The design is developed and improved, then presented to the client.
The prototypes are made to have a functional use and a brand manual is created. Materials are produced according to the client's needs.
All deliverables have been handed over to the client. Follow up with the client to receive feedback and reflect on the success of the project.
Every project is unique and presents a new problem, so always continue to learn and grow! Always put the best foot forward and give 110%.
“Focus on what matters. Do good things.
And do good work for good people.”
I am thankful to have grown up in a loving household and in a family that would do just about anything to make sure that I was prepared to succeed and accomplish my goals.

I found my fit in the graphic design program at Ferris State University. My experience has shaped me into the design thinker and creative problem solver that I am today. I have had to work harder than I ever thought, but I continue to make strides to becoming the design professional that I know I am meant to be.
