Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in Brooklyn by way of San Francisco and Baltimore. You can catch me directing design with the Brand team at Oscar Health
, as well as taking on select side projects from my desk at home. I've been a part of great teams, like Stink Studios
NY, the Intercom Brand Studio
, and Vox Media. I graduated from the graphic design dept. at RISD, I recently opened a *shop
*, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

Oscar launched a new insurance product for small businesses in select markets, in partnership with Cigna. To get the word out and explain the benefits of Cigna + Oscar to Business Administrators (the people who make decisions like what healthcare plan to offer employees), the Oscar Brand team worked with Buck to create a series of delightfully animated spots.
Agency partner: Buck.
Oscar team: Craig Damrauer, Topher Lorette, Libby Denault, David Mikula, Kate Apostolou.
