Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm getting my feet on the ground in the west coast to kick butt with the Intercom Brand Studio
. Previously, I was on the Design Team
at Vox Media, where we managed the identities and expressions of the 8 brands. I graduated from the graphic design department
at RISD, I stop in the street to take pictures of shapes
, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.
I built this site from scratch with help from SuperHi
and typeset it in GT Eesti
. For an extended portfolio, questions about projects, or bad jokes, shoot me an email. All work and photography © Dani Balenson 2017 - forever.
My hands are almost always moving and these are a few of the things I do with them in my free time.
Rubber baskets - each made to order; reach out for details.
Rope baskets - each made to order; reach out for details.
Posters to sell my belongings during my move from NYC to SF, based on grocery store and bodega signage. I made $50!
