Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm graphically designing with the Intercom Brand Studio
and finding my voice every day. Previously, I was on the Design Team at Vox Media
, where we managed the identities and expressions of 8 brands. 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.
