Recent Experience

Contract Senior Designer - M·A·C Cosmetics (April 2017 - April 2018)
As a designer on the Special Events team, I had the opportunity to work on the experience, design and execution of M·A·C’s events (such as Fashion Week, Generation Beauty, M·A·C Viva Glam) and their related collateral. I concepted and designed event branding, environments, signage, e-vites, invitations and other print and digital materials. The Special Events team collaborates across the company with environmental, digital and production designers to create memorable experiences and activations in the beauty market.

As a designer at School House I worked on everything from visual identity to web design projects from conception to completion. Produced work within the fields of packaging, art direction and overall brand experience.
