Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm a Senior Designer at 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.
