Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in Brooklyn by way of San Francisco and Baltimore. Currently, I'm a Design Director at Stink Studios and taking on select side projects. Previously, I've worked at the Intercom Brand Studio, Vox Media, and Established. I graduated from the graphic design dept. at RISD, I recently opened a *shop*, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

To celebrate the end of 2017 when it finally arrived, we made a gift set for Intercom employees across the globe. We wanted to make things that our coworkers would use in their physical lives while playing on the idea of seeing each other online all the time, since Intercom is split between San Francisco, Dublin, Chicago, and London. We made totes, pens, prints, cups, and bad jokes - and then .gifed the hell the out of everything.
