"Allison is a pleasure to work with, and very patient."
Jim Kinney, Client
I live to be pushed out of my comfort zone both as a designer and as a creative person. A strong desire to learn as much as I can during my lifetime, as well as an openness to change fuels this drive. As I grow and develop as a designer, I seek opportunities where the design challenge also needs to be as inclusive and accessibleas possible, as these are fundamental values.
As a designer, I have not limited myself to designing in one kind of medium or platform. Instead, I design holistically. My design practice is iterative, prototype heavy and thrives on primary data followed by testing. What follows are highlights of design work created over the past few years that span a wide variety of design areas. If you are seeking a graphic designer with a wide range of skills don’t hesitate to contact me.
