Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm designing with the Intercom Brand Studio
and freelancing on the side. Previously, I worked at Established NYC and then at Vox Media. I graduated from the graphic design dept. at RISD, I stop in the street to take pictures of shapes
, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

One of the things that makes Intercom prolific is that pros across the company write about their expertise and the brand team brings their words to life. I designed the book for Intercom's insights on marketing with an energetic and gestural feel, since start-up marketing begins as unrefined and organic. You can dive further into it (i.e, buy the book) (marketing!) here.
