Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in San Francisco by way of Brooklyn and Baltimore. Currently, I'm making weird shit with the Intercom Brand Studio and not updating this website very much at all. 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.


I built this site from scratch with help from SuperHi and typeset it in GT Eesti. For an updated portfolio, shoot me an email. All work and photography © Dani Balenson 2017 - forever.
