Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm a Senior Designer at the Intercom Brand Studio and freelancing on the side. Previously, I worked at Established NYC 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.

Inside Intercom needed an update in order to grow at the same rate as it’s audience. I worked with the Content team to turn the blog into a publication, with a design that allows for a customizable content structure (not just chronological posts), individual sections for each audience segment, articles with/without illustration, and a defined personality within the Intercom brand. I'm also responsible for commissioning and art directing amazing illustrators and photographers to bring the author's words to life. Read more here.
