Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in Brooklyn by way of San Francisco and Baltimore. You can catch me directing design and team building 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.

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.
